This piece was written by Andy Capaloff for Curatti
Collaboration across multiple skillsets is essential in any advancement, whether in the social sphere or in business.  Just as a good curator adds context related to their readership and an observation on the running of a small business can help take it to the next level, so input from people outside of the current thought leadership sphere can catapult conversations to new heights.
 
There are different types of smarts, and just because you may not feel that your writing matches up those involved in innovations that you are drawn to, does not mean that your input, providing a new angle, will not provide an ingredient that nobody even realized was missing.
 
Here are some highlights:
Technology and Social Media are branching out into many new forms at a rate few if any can keep up with.  Inevitably, natural selection comes into play, ensuring that even some of the best ideas barely see the light of day.
 
There is huge value in “multiple skillsets being employed in any process, with questions being asked by the non-experts or those with complementary skills”
 
There comes a point when a different viewpoint borne of different experiences and knowledge become essential to lift any great idea towards a new, far greater plateau

I love this article because as curator and a business owner being a provacateur is essential in instigating conversation and taking a topic to another level which can lead to all kinds of opportunities. There's an art to asking questions and this just first of many pieces on this topic that you'll find on Curatti


Something to ponder.......


How can you use leverage questions to benefit your business?


Can monetary value be placed on questions?  Not really, as there are too many variables involved. But depending on the timing and manner of delivery, questions can be the ingredient that spurs innovation and growth.

 

Here's are a few highlights:

 

The rhetorical question can spur conversation and wake up a

slumbering ideas process


The joking question can lift a mood


The incisive question can take a brilliant idea into a different stratosphere


The personal question can tell a person struggling in solitude that someone in the world cares

fairly obvious, but always good to remind ourselves of the factors between loyalists and advocates of a brand

Loyalty or advocacy

Cruise Line Class's comment, August 23, 2013 9:33 AM
Thank you for your insights! Donna, whether we are talking about a library or any other business. I think that it all depends on who my customers are. Who are they, what is important to them, and how can I add value. How can we as a business adapt, evolve, and respond to what our customer need from us. The art of story telling helps us to communicate in a way that we not only reach the minds of our audience...we also connect emotionally.
