A Harvard report this week published in Forbes was music to our ears. Over a period of 10 days, a group of employees were asked to spend 15 minutes reflecting on what they had learnt that day. And at the end of the 10 days, it was judged that productivity had risen by 23%.
We can encourage a culture of reflection when we ask co-workers for stories.
Storytelling is about bonding with other people. It’s about finding what we have in common. Stories about overcoming obstacles work best.
Whether we continue to work from home or return to the office, having a 15 minute group storytelling session looks a winner to build team morale, to bond and build productivity.
