Overview

In May of 2015, one survey of employers asked whether or not they thought that recently hired graduates from high school, two-year colleges, and four-year colleges were ready for the workforce. The report concluded, "the future workforce is here, and it is ill-prepared." This is problematic because the 21st-century will be one in which businesses will work in environments that are extremely fast-paced, volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous, and workers will need to be able to adapt in ways that preceding generations did not.
Other statistics demonstrate that in your average lifetime you will change jobs -- that is in completely different occupations -- at least seven times. So this means that it is not simply enough to major in some specific field such as management, teaching or biology. One must have a different type of education -- one which prepares you for the disruptive changes that will take place in this fast-paced world -- one which prepares you for world citizenship -- one which prepares you to be a good parent. This book will show you how to do that...become a renaissance thinker and world-class activist.
