The Venue Catalyst
Catalysts came come from events—taking everyone to the circus, a theme park, a rock concert, a ropes course; an elementary school lunchroom during lunch can fan the flames of imagination. But a venue need not mean a physical place; it could mean people who come from a different place. Famous business writer Tom Peters called these folks “freaks on file.” What if you invited to your next staff meeting an artist, a group of 3rd graders, a mime, a magician, a comedian, a chef or a clown, (I know, clowns come all the time…but, I mean a real clown).
James Schreier's insight:

Excellent example on how important the 'performing arts" can be for performance in so many areas.
