We point you to the diagnostics section of for a set of business narrative competencies that you, as an individual, can use in your work. It is of course a work-in-progress.

“Most of the words we use to describe our feelings are metaphors. To say you are elated is to say you feel as though you have been lifted to a high place. But why is there something good about height? Because, in the gravitational field of the earth all non-floating animals recognise the physical struggle to rise, and experience wonder when they see the world spread out beneath them. Being elated is feeling as if you’d overcome gravity… Language is a tower of metaphors, each ‘higher’ one resting on older ones ‘below’" Emanual Derman
