Shifting Stories
How changing their stories can transform people
by Andrew Scott

Shifting Stories explores the power of stories in organisational life and will help you take a new approach to:
Helping people who feel stuck
Energising individuals who wish to change
Getting teams to work more effectively
Resolving interpersonal problems
Helping people through organisational change
Dealing with conflict
Working on yourself

Written in three sections, What’s the Big Idea?, The ManyStory Approach in Practice, and Concluding Thoughts, each section works towards the reader having a deeper understanding of how to create a better future at work. Section One describes how we all live our lives through story, how problems may arise because of the stories people have created, how we can make stories come true, for good or for ill, and how we can work with stories to achieve better outcomes. Section Two details how we can apply the ManyStory Approach, with case studies exploring coaching, teamwork, leading change, and resolving conflict. Section Three consolidates the ideas of the book, looking firstly at the few occasions when this approach hasn’t worked and what we can learn from that. This section also looks to the future and invites readers to share their experiences.

Shifting Stories will be of strong interest to trainers, coaches, change agents, and leaders who seek to help individuals and teams to be more effective at work.
