The Neo-Generalist : Where you go is who you are Paperback / softback
Have you encountered difficulties describing what you do to other people?
Have you ever labelled yourself in order to be understood?
Is there a difference in the way that a generalist and a specialist can stay relevant?
If you had to design an approach to education fit for the twenty-first century, what would it look like?
How do you live a life of meaning if you live in more than one world?During an era still dominated by hyperspecialism and experts with 'the one right answer', the neo-generalist defies easy classification.
They are tricksters who traverse multiple domains, living between categories and labels.
Encompassing rather than rejecting, the neo-generalist is both specialist and generalist; a restless multidisciplinarian who is forever learning.
The neo-generalist brings together diverse people, synthesising ideas and practice, addressing the big issues that confront us in order to shape a better future.
They are curious, responsive, connective. In The Neo-Generalist, Kenneth Mikkelsen and Richard Martin examine what it is like to be in frequent motion on the specialist-generalist continuum.
To illustrate their idea, they draw on stories from numerous disciplines and cultures; from business, art, science, education, activism and sport.
In so doing, they explore the characteristics and behaviours of individuals who give expression to their neo-generalism, highlighting the social and organizational benefits they enable.
These are border-crossing leaders, innovators, creators and explorers who are already stewarding tomorrow's world.
