We are all impacted by the stories we tell about our life, our communities and our organizations. Chene invites us to explore our stories and our taken-for-granted beliefs and ideas. Re-authoring the world teaches us ways to have conversations that matter in order to transform ourselves and the communities in which we participate. This book gives me great hope that we can change our problem stories and create the alternative communities we desire. If you are a person who longs for transformation in our families, cities and communities, this book is for you.
“Chené Swart's new book will take your breath away. I am overcome by the power of the narrative. It is not just about the individual story but the power of the collective story for our families, communities, organizations and nations, … This is a must read for a world that seeks hope and change.” – Joan O. Wright, MSW, MCC, leadership and organizational development consultant. Author of UP: Pursuing Significance in Leadership and Life, and SOULinks: Pursuing Multi-Generational Significance.
“The narrative a community accepts as their story can shape who they become. Negative patterns are not easy to change. Chené in this remarkable book explains how we can build a new narrative for ourselves, our children and our neighbours, in turn choosing the future we want. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in how communities can change.” – Paul Born - President and Coach at the Tamarack Institute for Community Engagement and bestselling author of Community Conversations.
