10.15am - 12.15pm Storytelling and Organisational Culture - Interactive seminar lead by Kirsty Tagg, Dale Carnegie Northern England
‘’Sapiens rule the world, because we are the only animal that can cooperate flexibly in large numbers. We can create mass cooperation networks, in which thousands and millions of complete strangers work together towards common goals. One-on-one, even ten-on-ten, we humans are embarrassingly similar to chimpanzees. Any attempt to understand our unique role in the world by studying our brains, our bodies, or our family relations, is doomed to failure. The real difference between us and chimpanzees is the mysterious glue that enables millions of humans to cooperate effectively.
This mysterious glue is made of stories, not genes.’’
Yuval Noah Haraari, Sapiens, 2011
