How do stories work in the betwixt and between spaces of organisational life? The liminal can be glimpsed everywhere – it can infuse a role, an activity, a form of working or a physical space. These edgelands are both troubling and seductive: they have the potential to blur identifies, create confusion and sow uncertainty; yet they also promise creativity, personal growth and innovation. And so, maybe, stories are the way to help us navigate these spaces safely – the leaning posts that guide us across the bridge.
As my research in this area develops, I will share my occasional thoughts and musings on this blog. The plot may contain many twists, red herrings and, who knows, the odd cliffhanger or two. So I invite you to join me as we turn the page together.
