We are moving away from a society where left-brained professions, which led to the rise of the Information Age, are the most successful and sought after professions. More and more, ‘right-brained’ qualities, such as creativity, inventiveness, and empathy are being valued. Daniel Pink offers us a fresh look into this world, and in this thought-provoking book, lists and reveals the 6 essential traits that modern professional success and fulfillment depend on. Full of hands-on experiences created through the help of experts around the world, A Whole New Mind helps readers sharpen the necessary skills of today’s work environment, and changes not only how “we see the world but how we experience it”. Instead of calling for a complete move away from the left-brain abilities that many in the business world now possess, Pink emphasizes that these high-tech skills need to be supplemented with ‘high-concept’ and ‘high-touch’ skills, such as creativity and empathy. A long-time New York Times bestseller and translated into more than 24 languages, the book is an excellent, well-organized tool for any future minded leader who wants to face and address the issues facing everyone in this changing global environment.
