About this product
- DescriptionWe are operating in a world defined by constant connection, rapid change, and abundant choices. News that once took months, even years, to spread w reaches across the globe in seconds. Advances in medicine and science are pushing boundaries with gene therapy and stem cell transplants. And decisions about where and how to work and live are nearly endless. As new kwledge--and the possibilities that arise from that kwledge--propels us forward, leadership readiness expert and rewned author Erika Andersen suggests that success in today's world requires the ability to acquire new kwledge and skills quickly and continuously--in spite of our mixed feelings about being a vice. In her newest book, Be Bad First, Erika explores how we can become masters of mastery; proficient in the kind of high-payoff learning that's needed today. With assessments and exercises at the close of every chapter, she encourages readers to embrace being bad on the way to being great--to be vices over and over again as we seek to learn and acquire the new skills that will allow us to thrive in this fast-changing world.
