TEAMWORK SKILLS are important in every field of business. A good team enables you to be productive both as a group and as an individual. Today’s teams are different from the teams of the past. They’re more dispersed, digital, and diverse. But while collectives face new challenges, their success still depends on a core set of fundamentals that make a team a good team.
A study by Uri Hasses, a professor at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute, revealed surprising brain activity in audiences who engaged with stories.
“Not only did all of the listeners show similar brain activity during the story, but the speaker and the listeners also had very similar brain activity despite the fact that one person was producing language and the others were comprehending it,” said Hasses.
Storytelling can be a driver of employee performance, making them feel, think, and respond like the characters in the story.
