Summary of Conference Agenda

Narratives are complex explanations for the world we live in and the goals we pursue. The distinction between a story and a narrative is worth developing and pursuing at the individual, institutional and societal levels. The key to leverage, learning and loyalty to a mission may lie in understanding narrative’s powerful role in human motivation. People and organizations grow by sharing their stories.
