Sample text

Notes 1 All the poems cited at the beginning of chapters come from Kostera (2013). 2 Roleplaying games are an activity, related somewhat to theatre, in which a group of people (called the players) creates and roleplays characters in a world created by one other participant, called the Game Master, who describes the results of their actions and the actions of everything and everybody else in this created world. They are ‘a peculiar kind of activity, a state of mind that totally absorbs the player’s attention and transports him/her into the dimension of his/her own imagination.

Immediately, everything seems to shift. It is as if we were transported into a different cosmos just like that, without the time for being surprised. They play less loud but the music fills up all the space, it has flow, it is flow. The musicians step into it at once; after a few tones they are both intensely present and not quite here. Sometimes they hold eye contact with the audience, especially the singer, which seems to be absolutely personal, but at the same time they do not try to tell us anything or to make us notice them, like them.

Another important point for the seeker-�manager is to understand that imagination and rationality both belong in managerial work (Kociatkiewicz and Kostera, 2012a). Together with a co-�author I use the fictional character of the famous Victorian detective, Sherlock Holmes, to demonstrate the importance of a non-�linear rationality in managerial work. Normative textbooks present management processes, and especially decision making, in a highly reductionist fashion. If the world were shaped like that, managers would spend their working days calculating, comparing and editing graphs.
