Narrabusiness Consultation Group & Shared Project
with Pierre Blanc-Sahnoun
More and more colleagues around the world are bringing narrative conversations into companies and organizations. The narrative approach is highly effective with leaders, teams and work communities, and this effectiveness in return requires a great deal of attention to ethics and accountability. This attention enables us to engage ideals of justice, poetry and beauty while bringing narrative approaches into the world of business. Our dominant economic systems are typically shaped by very powerful practices known as “the “Big Five”: performance, shareholder return, compliance, competition and eternal growth. A narrative approach deconstructs these practices of cultural/economic normalization, inviting the Narrapist to engage a different set of values…one where alternative business stories of empowerment emerge from the honoring of individual excellence, community engagement and collaborative team building.
This consultation group, limited to 12 people, is aimed at narrative coaches and all Narrapists who work with companies, organisations, public services, hospitals, associations, etc. Two directions of work will be practiced. First: understanding narrative concepts in the world of organizations while maintaining ethical vigilance, and second: engaging participants in the engineering and deployment of their own narrative coaching missions in their own particular contexts.
One of the group’s intentions might also be to produce a collective book based on the conversations carried out together.
Pierre Blanc-Sahnoun, MBA, is a “Narrapist”, Coach, therapist, trainer and supervisor of coaches, corporate poet and teacher of the Australian Narrative Approach in France and Europe. As one of the oldest French coaches, he is the Founder and Director of White Spirit Narratives; the Founder and Pedagogic Director of La Fabrique Narrative, a Columnist at Management Magazine. He has published 17 books. With 25 years of experience in professional support and professional development consulting, Pierre currently accompanies leaders, Executive teams and professional communities with narrative practices.
As an esteemed member of the Reauthoring Teaching Faculty, Pierre presented the January 2020 Collab, What Happens When Narrative Therapy Migrates? and is the coordinator of our Narrative Practices Around the World: Intercultural Considerations Hot Topic for the New Decade Tuning Team, better known as the Galactic Federation of Narrative Planets.
The group will meet every month for 1.5 hours for 6 months on Thursday evenings from 5 pm – 6:30 pm French Time (11 am NY Time; 9am Pacific time, etc) starting September 3, 2020. The fee is $390. There is limited amount of scholarship funds available. Contact Pierre Blanc-Sahnoun at[email protected] if you have any questions.

We use Zoom for “meetings on a cloud” that bring together faculty and participants from around the world. Whether for The Collab Salon or a course webinar, these meetings usually last about an hour (sometimes a bit longer, but usually not more than 1-1/2 hours). Events are recorded, and then become available on-demand afterwards to Collab Members – or course registrants – whether or not able to join in real time.
