From the Brothers Grimm: Leadership Lessons For All

From the Brothers Grimm: Leadership Lessons For All | The Perfect Storm Team | Scoop.it
Fairy tales help children to answer basic existential questions, like who am I, what is the good life, where do I belong? Through fairy tales they learn to navigate reality and survive in a world full of ambiguities and dangers.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, May 21, 12:59 PM

Now here's an unusual piece that makes a lot of great points about the universal truths imbedded in fairy tales, and leadership wisdom.


The article is written by Manfred Kets de Vries of INSEAD. Here's one truth he shares:


"On a deeper level fairy tales can touch on humankind’s deepest fears and desires and be a source of inspiration. By identifying with characters in fairy tales, executives can come to better understand their own internal struggles and turn into more self-aware leaders."


There's more in his discussion of the fairy tale in the leader's journey (and it's not about the hero), and a section on the 5 Deadly Dangers of Leadership.


Go read it now for a different twist on business storytelling.


This review was written by Karen Dietz for her curated content on business storytelling at www.scoop.it/t/just-story-it 

David Hain's curator insight, May 21, 1:15 PM

Interesting leadership take from Manfred Kets de Vries!

Ian Berry's curator insight, May 21, 9:19 PM

Indeed lessons for all in this. I like the 5 leadership dangers particularly the first one about self-knowledge. Everyone can be a leader. Key is being and being requires remarkable self-awareness. The reason most leadership development programs in business schools and organisations fail to produce remarkable leaders is because the focus is on doing more than being.

Why you Should be Using Twitter Lists - RAW Digital Training

Why you Should be Using Twitter Lists - RAW Digital Training | The Perfect Storm Team | Scoop.it

Twitter lists are possibly one of the most underrated tools of Twitter, from organising who you follow to finding out what your competitors are posting, it is essential.

Amongst the hundreds of tweets you potentially view per day, it’s easy to scroll past tweets that interest you, or that are important. Twitter lists make missing important tweets a thing of the past. You can create your own, subscribe or be added to peoples lists. Lists allow you organise your followers (or even people you don’t follow) into categories which stream tweets from all of the people in the list in one place.

Twitter lists can either be public or private. Public lists are visible to anyone browsing your profile and people may be notified by Twitter as you add them to a public list.  Private lists for example, are a perfect way to gather all of your competitors twitter feeds in one place keeping you aware of their deals, products, ideas etc without the need to follow them directly....
