According to Germanic beliefs a witch was a fence rider. She could make her way along the border being inside and outside at the same time. Witches were neither here nor there. Legends say they were questioning the existing paradigms. As a result, many of them were burnt for possessing unpopular information.
Here, we can identify the correlation between witches and leadership.
Organizations need to deal with the border between inside and outside – the symbolic function of a witch. This function closely follows what happens on the outside, and then provides the organization with the gathered information. Even today many of these audacious “fence riders” are being burnt symbolically because they feed the organization with unpopular information.
With the concept of “Foresighted Self-Renewal”, organizations are enabled to systematically expand their “witch-potential” in order to build enough irritation-potential for the necessary self-renewal.
