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 the 21st Century will be those of the right brain: empathy, design, synthesis, and contextual thinking. In this live presentation, author and lecturer Daniel Pink tells you:

  • How abundance, Asia, and automation are changing the world
  • Why routine is the scariest word in theEnglish language
  • How old-line companies like GM and Proctor & Gamble are responding
  • What six abilities matter most in the emerging age Download and start listening now!

      " Book review of this week: 'A whole new mind' is an interesting and inspiring book. Pink explains how creative and holistic "right-brain" thinkers will change our future in business and media through six critical senses: design, play, story, symphony, empathy and meaning. Lots of good tips and links are mentioned in the latest edition. Reading the book was the perfect entertainment during my holiday between sightseeing and on flights as it lacks depth in some parts. Will definitely experiment with the ideas and advices, Pink shares to increase my 'right-brain'-mindset. 4 stars! "

      " Interesting concept that in this job market is worth considering. Conversely, in this current job market it tends to be a bit too idealistic. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 2/2/2014

      " Wow. Excellent read. I read it very slowly because I didn't want it to be over! Which is saying something for a non-fiction book. Loved his ability to connect disparate elements and offer insight. Enjoyed the addition of materials to review for each quality. Great website as well for the author. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gregory Kouba | 2/1/2014

      " Pink is a great speaker and asserts his premise well here. Creativity and non-linear thinking is what will separate the successful from the stagnate. "

      " Loved it. A great way to think about our future. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thanh Giang | 1/19/2014

      " As a right-brainer, I am much fascinated about this book of creativity. Still, in my opinion, like the Maslow's pyramid of needs, creativity can only bring results when the lower elements are fulfilled. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosemarie Donzanti | 12/28/2013

      " I read this for a meeting I was attending and it made for some really good discussion. A quick read with some great resources after each chapter. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy Lewis | 12/9/2013

      " Not only does this book talk about why and how the way we do things is shifting from a left-brained focus to a right-brained one, it also gives great suggestions on how to hone our right brain talents. Everyone has them, we just need to exercise them! "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ilana Rabinowitz | 11/28/2013

      " The fast pace of change and the digital revolution have made so many jobs obsolete. This book shares the type of work that will remain critical. "

    • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Noora | 9/7/2013

      " I got through about 1/2 of the book and then lost interest. "Drive" on the other hand is an amazing book. "

    • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Christine | 8/1/2013

      " Prototypical book about self-actualization and how to structure one's life. It's this kind of book that give the other books on Oprah's book club list a bad name. Once I had skimmed the first 60 pages I was in too deep and had to finish - unfortunate. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rick Toone | 6/21/2013

      " This is not an easy read - thus the 4 star rating - and its not for everyone. But if you area at all interested in how your brain works, how its evolving, and what that might mean for the future - this is a great book to read. "
