Mindshift: Turn Weakness Into Strength
At a time when we are constantly being asked to retrain and reinvent ourselves to adapt to new technologies and changing industries, Dr. Barbara Oakley, Ph.D., shows us how we can uncover talents we didn’t realize we had?no matter what our age or background. Oakley has an eclectic resume, from waitress to Army officer, Russian translator to radio operator, and most recently professor of engineering and author of New York Times bestseller, A Mind for Numbers. Alongside legendary neuroscientist Terrence Sejnowski, she has also taught the world’s most popular massive open online course (MOOC), “Learning How to Learn” for Coursera/UC San Diego, reaching over 2 million people in just the past two years.
