About stories and messages

I invite you to make a clear distinction between telling a story and delivering a message. Stories are mostly about the past or about the future. You can’t go back to your past, you can’t change anything about it and you can’t check anymore what reality was like exactly back then. You also can not foresee the reality of your future, you can only tell stories about your expectations. Your past and your future are shaped by your stories.

In working with horses, you don’t become meaningful by telling a story. You need to deliver a clear message.

Wouldn’t it be helpful if also in your organisation the distinction was made between telling colourful stories and delivering clear messages? Can you imagine what difference this would make?

I regularly post a quote out of my book “Connective Clarity. When Horses Invite You to Take up Authentic, Solution Focused Leadership” (available on Amazon and on www.connective-clarity.org ) . I am curious to find out what your reflections are, to what actions this might inspire you. Do you join in?
