I was asked the other day, why I wanted to train both children and corporates in using the "...softer arts when the world was all about profit and crunchable numbers" (their words, not mine).
"Because the "softer arts" are what makes those numbers in the long run", I replied. His puzzled look required me to elaborate which I hoped it would.
"Think of the traditional Tiger Mum and the school structure. Schools measure aptitude by testing and grading, and the better the child is at that subject, the better marks he or she gets. Now, the Tiger Mum isn't stupid; she knows that the easiest way to score high marks are in subjects where there is a black and white answer; objective subjects, if you will.."
"Like maths and science", he interrupted.
"Yes, like maths and science", I continued. "So, the typical process is that the traditional Tiger Mum pushes their child in the objective subjects, thereby forgoing the other subjects like art, drama and to a point, music."
"As the child grows up, they get fantastic grades at school, college or university, and then land themselves in a corporate office doing corporate tasks. Process driven corporate tasks, essentially. Which they again excel in."
"They reach middle management, and are in charge of a team. A team of mixed personalities with their own wants, needs and quirks. Then there's a promotion up for grabs, but he (or she) doesn't get it. Why?"
Something a bit now which will thrill the visual and aural learners out there (I'm more kinesthetic and visual, myself).
Here's a video using one of those sped up drawing narratives which seems to be quite popular now. Although it can be quite helpful to watch, having the static result as a drawing only and not being a video (with sound), tends to be less beneficial.
Regardless, the content is quite interesting, and hopefully helps you with your team.
