This module builds on its prerequisite MLD-355M, "Public Narrative: Self, Us, Now." In this module we go deeper. We explore how we can use public narrative to aquire agency in the face of serious leadership challenge: loss, domination, difference, and change. Most of us have experienced these leadership challenges in our family, in our work life, or in our communities. We can draw the narrative content of these experiences to equip ourselves to deal with them in public life. We can respond to domination, for example, with resistance or with compliance; to difference with inclusion or exclusion; to loss with redemption or contamination; to change with rejection, conservation, reform or revolution. The question is how we can respond-and enable others to respond with "agency" - our capacity to act mindfully - by accessing hope over fear, empathy over alienation, and self-worth over self-doubt. Prerequisite: MLD-355M.
