The Study of Story Science
This week we are honored to have Angus Fletcher on the Driving Change Podcast. Angus is a Professor of Story Science at Ohio State’s Project Narrative. His lab uses a combination of neuroscience and narrative theory to identify specific stories that can boost creativity, empathy, problem-solving, and resilience. His research has been called “mind-blowing” by Malcolm Gladwell and “life-changing” by Brene Brown, and has been published in journals from Harvard Business Review to The New York Academy of Sciences. His current research partners include UPenn Wharton and teams at US Special Operations.
In this episode, Angus and Jeff break down the essentials of what Story Science is and how you can use it to become more creative and apply it to your every day life.
