2nd Annual Poetry at Work Day is coming January 14, 2014
In a recent survey of 1500 CEOs, IBM reported that creativity was the top leadership quality needed to take businesses into the future — it ranked higher than integrity and global thinking. While you might find this result surprising, it won’t likely surprise you that poets are, well, creative. Perhaps that’s why Harvard Business Review recently discussed the value of poetry for professionals. And why a business leader like Sidney Harman was known to ask his staff to hire poets as managers. (Poets? As managers? And he ran a successful business?)
Tweetspeak Poetry believes in poetry at work — finding it at work (poetry is all over the workplace) and bringing it to work (why, we even recently sponsored Take Your Poet to Work Day.)
In the weeks and months ahead, we’ll be featuring ways you can celebrate Poetry at Work Day. To launch the celebration, we’re releasing our brand new 2014 Poetry at Work Day infographic, and the official 2014 Poetry at Work Day poster (see below to order yours).
