Lehrer bookHow We Decide: The New Science of Decision Making

Jonah Lehrer
Author of How We Decide and
Proust Was a Neuroscientist

In this engaging talk, Jonah Lehrer shows you how leaders in various fields are taking advantage of new discoveries in neuroscience to make better television shows, win more football games, improve military intelligence — and improve how we engage learners. (On the flip side: how did defects in our decision-making apparatus lead to, among other things, the current financial crisis, and costly wars — and how can we overcome these inherent flaws in our brain?) With verve and warmth, and the ability to clearly explain important and complex concepts, Lehrer brilliantly answers two questions that are of interest to just about anyone: How does the human mind make decisions? And how can you make those decisions better?

Brody book365 Days From Now:
Preparing for the Change Ahead

Leonard Brody
Futurist, Author, Co-Founder and CEO of NowPublic

We are standing at one of the most challenging crossroads in human history — one that may not enable our past to predict our future. Technological evolution has connected every human being on the planet at the touch of a button. Combine this with massive demographic shifts, ecological crises, and financial disarray, and it is easy to feel disoriented. There are three drivers in this maelstrom — the compression of time, the plentitude of access, and the removal of value economics. Understanding these ideas can help you prosper amid the chaos. Leonard Brody will help you create a plan to master these concepts, navigate the world around you, and most important, be prepared for the next 365 days of your life.

What does it take to achieve personal success and feel like you are in your element? World-renowned innovator Sir Ken Robinson argues that it is not natural talent that drives personal success, but rather a delicate interplay among talent, passion, attitude, and opportunity that brings people to achieve their highest levels of success and lead lives of meaning and purpose. Based on his newly released and highly acclaimed book The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything, Robinson will take you on a compelling tour of what can happen in all our lives when passion and talent meet. He draws on the personal stories of high achievers in many fields to help you understand how to enhance your creativity and innovation in both personal and professional settings. With a wry sense of humor, Sir Ken will show how focusing on "The Element" is an essential strategy in transforming education, business, and communities to meet the challenges of living and succeeding in the twenty-first century.
