Where are we heading to? What traits will be crucial to adopt in order to have successful businesses? The bestselling book by Daniel H. Pink, A Whole New Mind is founded on the argument that the right-brain thinkers will rule the future of the world and the reasons for this are identified with reference to trends that will impact the future of the world.
The three trends that the author bases his arguments are abundance, Asia and automation. These three imply the abundant choices and resources available to the consumers, the possibility of outsourcing and the continually improving technology. So what will make the difference among businesses?
Daniel H. Pink argues that the conceptual age, which is characterized by innovation and creativity proceeds the information age which was dominated by knowledge. The conceptual age, according to the author, is where we are heading to or where we already are. Only those businesses that excel in the above facets will be successful in the competing business environment.
The author refers to interesting research results from all around the world. The six aptitudes necessary to enhance your businesses or to have a fulfillment in your personal lives are closely linked to the requirements brought about by the conceptual age. These aptitudes are design, story, symphony, empathy, play and meaning, all of which are the characteristics of a right-brain thinker.
If you are a left-brain thinker, do not be disappointed by the major claim that the right-brain thinkers will rule the future. The author Daniel H. Pink also offers suggestions to the left-brain thinkers who may also improve their abilities.
A Whole New Mind by the author Daniel H. Pink will make you think on where the world is heading to and you will question where you are or your business is standing in the changing economical and social environment. As Seth Godin claims: “Wow! A Whole New Mind is one of those rare books that marks a turning point”.
