Since the beginning of time, myths have shaped our worldviews and the ways in which we do business. Myths have been used for these purposes from the time of the ancient Greeks all the way up until today.
Providing a story that can be used to motivate and inspire workers is where mythology really shines for businesses. Organizations can benefit from the power of myth by developing a common set of values and beliefs that serve to unite its members.
The Greek myth of Icarus, for instance, contains a powerful warning against the perils of pride and egotism. You can use this urban legend to keep your team grounded in modesty and aware of the perils of taking on too much work.
Employees can be encouraged by the myth of Sisyphus to keep working hard despite constant setbacks and was doomed to roll a boulder up a hill for all of eternity.
One example of mythology’s effectiveness in the workplace is in its ability to foster a feeling of unity and camaraderie among employees. Organizations can benefit from the unifying and purposeful effects of a shared set of values and beliefs by harnessing the power of myth.
The power of mythology in business is undeniable. By tapping into the power of myth, businesses can create a shared set of values and beliefs that can help to create a sense of purpose and unity within the organization. As the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus said, “The only constant is change.” By embracing the power of mythology, businesses can create a culture of change and growth that will help them to stay ahead of the competition.
