Lego Serious Play and Storydoing | Serious Play Pro | Serious Play | Scoop.it

I recently read a book aboutStorydoing™ written by Ty Montague. It was called “True Story: How to Combine Story and Action to Transform Your Business”. The book created the concept of storydoing and differentiated it from the regular marketing approach that primarily relies on storytelling – coming up with a story and labelling the product according to story.

70 year old Creativity Technique That Is Still Relevant Today

70 year old Creativity Technique That Is Still Relevant Today | Serious Play | Scoop.it
An interesting 70 year old book is gaining popularity again in the creativity and innovation fields

 

Around the late 1930's, a creative Ad man named James Webb Young had a knock on his door from a manager who shared an epiphany that success in advertising comes from selling ideas not things. Despite the manager's insight, he had one problem, his team didn't know how to get ideas; they were stuck.  So, they came to the successful James Young for ideas on how to get ideas.  This encounter led to Young creating a little book called  A Technique for Producing Ideas. I recently came across it and was impressed to find some advice that is as relevant today as 70 years ago. I recommend you buy the book, but below I've picked out the key points you can use right away.

Using Books as an Empathy Resource

Using Books as an Empathy Resource | Serious Play | Scoop.it
You gave us empathy book recommendations. Now we're giving you the questions to ask children while reading them.

 

It is one thing to read a book. It is another thing to comprehend a book. It is quite another thing to understand its characters.

 

Researchers have found that people who read fiction develop empathy when they are emotionally transported into the story. This is a fantastic opportunity for parents, peers and educators to help children explore the complexity of characters’ actions and emotions. How we read books with children affects their perceptions of social interactions, feelings and events. So the more we help children explore the emotions and perspectives of story characters, the better we equip them with the real-world capacity to understand the actions and feelings of other people.
