Compare and contrast the analytical strengths and weaknesses of two theoretical perspectives:

1. Storytelling

2. Psychodynamics

Consider: ● Outline each perspective briefly ● Discuss the relative strengths and weaknesses of the perspectives in terms of understanding leading and managing change ● Make an overall evaluation of the perspectives you have discussed Below are some useful resources of each of the perspective as well as strength and weaknesses, the paper should include outside sources, but please use at least 5 sources of each topic. I will also upload the powerpoints for both perspectives. Likewise, correct in-text citations and end references are needed in Havard Style. Storytelling: – This session concerns the processes of interpretation, action and meaning whereby people come to ‘structure the unknown’. We consider the storytelling approaches to organisational change as ways of understanding how people not only ‘read’ organisations, but also ‘author’ them as they engage in sensemaking. We consider the impact of this on the forms of change that are accepted and rejected, and what comes to count as change. Auvinen, T., Aaltio, I., & Blomqvist, K. (2013).
