Storytelling for Learning From Others with Chris Myers

Posted by

We know that tapping into experiences as part of our learning ecologies makes them richer and enables us better able to adapt to new situations.  At LILA, we have explored practices that enable us to do this at the individual level.  But what about creating learning ecologies at scale that enable learning to an entire team for example.  This is the starting point for today’s presentation by Dr. Chris Myers, Assistant Professor at the Carey School of Business at Johns Hopkins University. As you listen to the presentation, consider the following questions:

  1. How are you encouraging storytelling in your organizations?  Towards what purpose?
  2. Do employees know when and where to seek and share stories?
  3. What mechanisms are in place to make sure they are prepared to get the value out of the stories?
  4. What practices are in place to scale the lessons of those stories to the entire organization?
