Sir Ken Robinson is an amazing guy. I keep nearly meeting him at conferences we’re both at, but never quite do. His new book The Element, which he talks about here at the RSA in London, sounds fantastic. It’s about diversity of human talent, and three arguments run through it:
1. Finding purpose in your work is essential to knowing who you really are.
2. Growth and development is non-linear. Education should not be a mechanistic process.
3. Human talent isn’t lying on the surface, it’s often buried deep inside.
Like Gladwell’s most recent outing, Robinson looks at success within different environments. Looking forward to cracking this.
