“We're taught to think that all great minds think alike. While this may have worked during pre-21st century industrial times, this is no longer the case today”

Karen Dietz's curator insight, May 13, 2015 11:17 AM

Now here's a piece coming from the worlds of creativity and education about the necessity for storytelling -- but it is directly applicable to business.


As you read the article by Menno van DijkLaurie Kemp, whenever the words "education" or "school" are mentioned, simply substitute the word "business" and you'll get their points. 


The authors discuss research from the journal of Creativity And Innovation Management. The focus of the research was how storytelling skills build creativity and innovation abilities. There's even a link to the original research article that you can download for free.


And a business's competitive edge today is in creativity and innovation, right? In fact, that's the competitive edge for the US economy in the global marketplace.


The research focuses on storytelling in schools. But if it's good for students, it's good for business.


The take away? If you are in business of any size, training in storytelling could be a key to your sustainable future. If you are a consultant or coach, adding storytelling skills to your repertoire could keep your pipeline fed (but get trained in storytelling first, please).


Storytelling, creativity, innovation -- go forth and prosper!
