Storytelling and Employee Engagement
Narrative and storytelling are powerful tools to further the goals of organizations. As an interdisciplinary approach to understanding narrative in organizations, this course is grounded in theories and methods of narrative psychology, anthropology, sociology, and literary thought. Intrinsic to human behavior, the narrative application is predicted to become mainstream in business and organizational studies. Students develop a critical understanding of the use and limits of narrative and storytelling within group and organizational settings. Interactive exercises and guest lecturers engage students in the power of narrative.
