This is a great article which encourages us to develop thought diversity across our teams, through the lens of a child. It offers three key ways to achieve this; Storytelling, by changing the environment and by allowing more autonomy. A good example of this would be the way children approach art with no constraints We learn rules which can feel controlling and can inhibit us to be creative.

Our challenge is to allow ourselves and others to be creative as this will support the solving of difficult issues within health and care…

  1. Couldn’t agree more, I have a fantastic manager who trusts me to be an adult and get on with my work. I’ve been trusted to deliver millions of pounds worth of projects and because of the success of my work, my confidence has grown. I’m now entrusted to write about whatever I think sounds like a good story/article for our colleague magazine and I’ve not had one article rejected yet!
