Abstract and Keywords

Exploring “antenarrative” processes of storytelling reveals why corporations so often have overlooked the natural environment, to the extent that some scientists predict the “sixth extinction.” Senge and some pioneering others have promoted more encompassing frameworks as well as more inclusionary collaborative approaches to learning organizations, in ways which incorporate concern for the natural environment. In this chapter the authors extend that work by offering an antenarrative approach that is critical in questioning the “business as usual” status quo, is inclusive in recognizing the interconnectivity of persons and planet, and uses ensemble storytelling processes to incorporate diverse community voices. The collaborative approach of Ensemble Leadership Theory (ELT) uses ensemble storytelling to co-create a more encompassing and equitable approach to the learning organization’s relationship with the natural environment. These ensemble storytelling processes include: together-telling, materiality, economics, worker-to-worker participation, elicitation, authorship, and theatrical performances.

Keywords: storytelling, antenarrative, Ensemble Leadership Theory (ELT), ensemble storytelling, learning organization
