Collaborative Comics Storytelling as a tool for fostering leadership skills

866 visualizações

Publicada em

Comics is a narrative form that combines two other forms of expression, words and pictures. During the creation of a comic story you might work alone or you might have to work with others as a collaborative and co-creation oriented-team, building on diverse backgrounds, knowledge, experiences and skills (script writer and penciler, inker, letterer etc). Comics creation is nevertheless a co-creation process. Either you work alone, or you work inside a team you always interact with your audience and external environment. We use comics storytelling as a tool to foster collaboration, teamwork and creativity.

In this paper we will describe the methodology of collaborative comics storytelling as having been
applied to:
- elementary school children with a focus on creativity
- companies and leaders with a focus on team building, brainstorming, collaboration and creative problem solving

We will also present and discuss findings of an ongoing research regarding the dynamics of the medium of comics as an educational tool promoting leadership skills (creativity, team building,
collaboration, creative problem solving).

  29. 29. a) Creativity We are living in the era where the terms creativity and innovation have become crucial to almost every aspect of our lives. In comics universe there is a common practice creating stories based on existing characters but with a “what if” twist. Think of a problem or challenge you might face in your professional field. Tell the story of “the problem” in comic form (outline the problem, sketch the main characters, have them arrive at some solution). Put the first comic aside. Then ask “what if” questions. Draw a simple comic story based on each option and see where it leads you. Compare the stories with the original story and then try to replace each “superpower” you might have given to your character by real powers and creative thoughts. Do this 3-4 times if possible.

  30. 30. b) !Collaboration In comics we often meet teams of superheroes. People from different backgrounds and with different abilities work together towards a common scope. Fantastic Four, Avengers or X-Men are some from the most popular superhero teams. What makes them so successful? Pick a superhero team (Avengers, Fantastic Four, X-Men etc) and describe each member (abilities, character, contribution to the team etc). Try to find out why and how the team works successfully. Notice if there is a team leader and write down his characteristics as well. Find and present examples. Then, apply your findings to real life team members and describe the perfect team. Finally, create your own superhero team. Each of the member of your group has to draw and describe his/her superhero. All members should decide collaboratively what is the purpose of the team and which is the role of each member. Give your team and characters names and present them to other teams Wednesday, August 27, 2014
  31. 31. c) Leadership An important skill for a leader is to be able to inspire his/her team. A leader must understand the power of a great story. A good story can motivate, inspire and ignite action. We will take as an example Professor X, leader and founder of X-Men. Xavier's students consider him a visionary, he is respected by various governments and trusted by several other superhero teams. The character is considered to have been inspired by Martin Luther King and according to Business Week, Charles Xavier is listed as one of the top ten most intelligent fictional characters in comics. Professor X gathers all the characteristics of a good leader, among them, inspiring others. Spot and write down examples how and if Professor X manages to motivate others. Analyze the way he does it. Find other leaders (from political, economical, cultural or other sector) and spot their defining moments. Compare the stories, gather the motivation techniques they use and write a short summary (collaborative activity). Then, become Professor X and write a short inspirational speech in order to motivate your team protect the society from racism and create an equal environment for all. Wednesday, August 27, 2014
