The six essential abilities you will need to flourish, as the economy shifts from the information age to the conceptual age. [UNK] A book that tracks major trends in work and provides practical guidance on how to thirve in the new age. [UNK] Wide feature and review coverage in business and general media expected. The last few decades have belonged to a certain kind of person with a certain kind of mind: computer programmers who could write code, lawyers who could craft contracts, accountants who could crunch numbers. The future, however, belongs to a very different kind of person with a different kind of mind. The future belongs to creators and empathisers, pattern recognisers and meaning-makers. This book describes a huge - but mainly undetected - shift now underway. We are moving from an economy and society built on logical, linear, computer-like capabilities of the information age to an economy and society built on the inventive, empathic, big picture capabilities of what is rising in its place, the Conceptual Age. In this book, Daniel Pink describes six essential aptitudes - a whole new mind - that professional success and personal satisfaction will depend in the new age, which anyone can master.
