Storytelling Paradigm shift to Mitigate Global Water
Figure 1: Storytelling Paradigm Shift to Mitigate Global Water Crisis

A storytelling paradigm is theories, methods, and interventions for a total system diagnosis and intervention that addresses the scale of the Global Water Crisis. The idea is to begin with Ensemble Leadership Storytelling THEORY, a methodology of Self-Correcting Induction, and the intervention of 'True Storytelling.' We can then move to second column and third column theories, methods, and interventions.
