Empathy In Creativity and Design Thinking

Empathy In Creativity and Design Thinking | Serious Play | Scoop.it

"The new RSA animate video, The Power of Outrospection is quite thought provoking and has gotten me thinking about all kinds of links between empathy and creativity.

In the video, philosopher Roman Krznaric explores the idea that we live in a time that demands more empathic adventurers in all aspects of life. Empathy not just so we act better towards others, but also because it helps us create better innovations, services and quality of life. I was struck by the video because I think there is something in the zeitgeist these days that highlights the importance of empathy for creating."

Learn From Others

Learn From Others | Serious Play | Scoop.it
There’s no way to overestimate the importance of learning from the people around us.   When we’re open to learning from others, we benefit from their experience as well as our own and we can inherit their wisdom and knowledge.

 

Learning is a practice, not an event. Leadership and learning are invaluable to each other.

Make learning inspirational enough for us to dream more, learn more, do more and be more.

Now imagine I ask you to show me your story – with rich visual images and few, if any, words. Which pictures would you use? How would you arrange them? What would you want them to show about you, your organization or your brand?"
