Transforming weaknesses into strengths through organisational shamans: The case of Colombian peace commissioner that signed the final agreement

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to propose a tool for organisational management based on the analysis and interpretation of shamans in organisations, defining organisational shaman as someone who perceives, predicts and manages the company's social and environmental health. To achieve this goal, we follow a mixed sequential methodology, i.e., quantitative and qualitative, that begins with the revision of the current status of the discussion about organisational shamans through a bibliometric analysis, and ends with a content analysis that serves to propose a conceptual tool to search and select a shaman. Once define the conceptual tool, we verified it in the case of the Colombian Commissioner for Peace, one of the negotiators of the peace agreement signed between the government and the armed group FARC-EP. To finally, understand how it has been possible to transform one of the country's weaknesses into strength, and how the consultant-shaman is jointly responsible for the results.
