Why Right-brainers Will Rule the Future
Great information and topics for speakers and motivational business presentations. Be on the leading edge with your information and future speaking opportunities.
In A Whole New Mind, Pink explores and confirms the idea that the future belongs to a different kind of person with a different kind of mind: artists, inventors, storytellers-creative and holistic ”right-brain” thinkers whose abilities mark the fault line between who gets ahead and who doesn’t.
Lawyers. Accountants. Computer programmers. That’s what our parents encouraged us to become when we grew up. But Mom and Dad were wrong.
The future belongs to a very different kind of person with a very different kind of mind. The era of “left brain” dominance, and the Information Age that it engendered, are giving way to a new world in which “right brain” qualities-inventiveness, empathy, meaning-predominate.
That’s the argument at the center of this provocative and original book, which uses the two sides of our brains as a metaphor for understanding the contours of our times.
In this insightful and entertaining book, which has been translated into 20 languages, Daniel H. Pink offers a fresh look at what it takes to excel. A Whole New Mind reveals the six essential aptitudes on which professional success and personal fulfillment now depend, and includes a series of hands-on exercises culled from experts around the world to help readers sharpen the necessary abilities.
This book will change not only how we see the world but how we experience it as well.
A Whole New Mind takes readers to a daring new place, and a provocative and necessary new way of thinking about a future that’s already here.
