A Whole New Mind

Just as we were getting used to the information age, Daniel Pink tells us that it is ending. With it goes our focus on charts, statistics, and linear thinking. Traditional "left-brain" activities like logic, analysis, and repetitive production are being turned over to robots, computers, and offshore labor. The valued skills of 21st century will be those of the right brain: empathy, design, synthesis, and contextual thinking. Author and lecturer Daniel Pink tells you: How abundance, Asia, and automation are changing the world; Why "routine" is the scariest word in the English language; How old line companies like GM and Proctor & Gamble are responding; What six abilities matter most in the emerging age.
