The Creative Power Of Working In Pairs

Creative genius is often considered a solo act, but history and science tell us that success more often  stems from collaboration. From John Lennon and Paul McCartney to Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, we discuss the power of working in pairs. 

Guest:

  • Joshua Wolf Shenk is an advisor for "The Moth" storytelling organization and the author of The Powers of Two: Finding the Essence of Innovation in Creative Pairs.

Interested in hearing more about the impact of creative chemistry? Joshua Wolf Shenk speaks tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the Central Branch of the Kansas City Public Library. RSVP at kclibrary.org.

Up To Date creativity
When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
Slow news days are a thing of the past. As KCUR’s news director, I want to cut through the noise, provide context to the headlines, and give you news you can use in your daily life – information that will empower you to make informed decisions about your neighborhood, your city and the region. Email me at lisa@kcur.org or follow me on Twitter @larodrig.
