A Whole New Mind
Daniel H. Pink
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.
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
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.
Our thoughts at Proteus Leadership:
"I believe that I intuitively knew it, but Pink's book give such a compelling account of how and why the 20th century age of "left-brain directed" thinking is now giving way to a Conceptual Age where "right-brain" abilities will be most highly prized. Personally I was celebrating as I read how the future belongs to the creators, meaning makers and big picture thinkers - now that's a place I want to play and work in!"
