Karen Dietz's curator insight, June 8, 1:10 PM

Hey all,

Jerome Bruner explored the idea of storytelling as a fundamental way of understanding the world around us. A few days ago on June 5, he died at the age of 100.

 

As Howard Gardner, a psychologist and professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education says, “Bruner made narrative a form of thinking."

 

The Washington Post wrote a nice piece on Bruner here. Make sure you explore his writings.

 

Here's the wikipedia link to learn more about him and see the bibliography of his works:

We will  miss you Dr. Bruner!

The Psychology of Workplace Boredom

The Psychology of Workplace Boredom | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Forbes asks if it’s “the new productivity killer;” Cachinko calls it “the silent killer of employee morale;” CNN says it’s “the new stress.”

[...]  It’s not that people have nothing to do at work – they might be busier than ever. But the real question is… busy with what? “Often with layoffs,” he says, “the type of work that’s doled out you wouldn’t need additional training to do. If it’s boring work, it just becomes more burdensome.” Indeed, the cost of such extreme boredom is not just discomfort. Results range from personal dissatisfaction and reduced productivity to making substantial errors and major accidents.

I would like to add that even if you are a leader that creativity and ideas is not your strongest point...ask your staff.  They will always have ideas on how to make the work environment more fun, engaging, interesting, and motivating.

A personality test that can't be faked

A personality test that can't be faked | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Aspects of personality can be even more important than IQ when it comes to predicting workplace performance and academic success. If you're conscientious and emotionally stable, you're likely to be a better employee or a more successful student than someone who is lazy and unstable. The trouble for university selectors or company recruiters is that personality tests can be easily faked...until now. Psychologists in Canada think they've found a way to measure the Big Five factors of personality that is less vulnerable to faking.
