Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Conversations of intrigue are facilitated dialogues about the cut and thrust of modern organisations. Although I am happy to coach people in how to build a Conversation of Intrigue around a book or film of their choice, I can also supply material to facilitate a Conversation for you:


During 2016 the featured novel for Conversations Of Intrigue is John Le Carre’s classic espionage novel Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is a beautifully written and engrossing page turner, peopled by fascinating characters and set against a background of an organization beset with problems of scandal, poor governance and toxic culture.

I have woven together these themes from the book into a discussion of organisational cultures and contemporary life that is likely to resonate with many and provoke discussion spanning whodunnit to board room drama.

The combination of types of characters, setting and story allows themes revolving around leadership, knowledge management, performance management and communication to surface, making a reading of this novel an ideal strategy to explore organisational narrative.
