Abstract [en]

“When a system gets cold, then images can warm it up - a vitalising journey using storytelling as part of a management system”. This essay wants to show that the rational language used in management and governance needs to come alive. I have spent a long time in business, moving from a rational programming mind to becoming a reflective storyteller, and I now use the metaphorical language of storytelling to add life and vitality to organisations. The form of an essay is used to reflect on practical knowledge and one’s own proficiency. I used storytelling in a workshop to deepen the significance and meaning of a company’s vision. The method reveals, through the process, the management team’s practical knowledge. The method and my own practical knowledge are in a hermeneutic spirit compared to contemporary philosophers. The development of rational thinking and its counterforces are explored. The possibilities of leadership within an organisation’s structures is compared to management research. It leads to the conclusion that the metaphorical language is a language that opens spaces in-between, “the nothingness” and as such opens a tear to the vitality of leaders.

Abstract [sv]

”När systemet är kallt kan bilder värma – en vitaliserande resa med storytelling i ledningssystem” vill visa att det rationella språk som används för ledning och styrning behöver få liv. Jag har börjat använda storytellings bildspråk för att tillföra liv och vitalitet i organisationer efter ett långt arbetsliv där jag rört mig från rationell programmerare till reflekterande berättare. Essän som form används för att reflektera över den praktiska kunskapen, det egna yrkeskunnandet. Med storytelling som metod har jag genomfört en workshop hos en ledningsgrupp för att fördjupa innebörden av organisationens vision. Metoden synliggör i processen lednings-gruppens praktiska kunskap. I en hermeneutisk anda ställs både metoden och min egen praktiska kunskap mot nutida tänkare. Det rationella tänkandets utveckling och motkrafter utforskas. Ledarskapets möjligheter i organisationers strukturer ställs mot ledarskapsforskning. För att slutligen se på bildspråket såsom ett språk som öppnar upp ett mellanrum, intet, revan som leder in till ledarnas vitalitet.
