THINK AGAIN: The Power of Knowing What You Don’t Know
by Adam Grant
To succeed in a complex, dynamic world, you must be able to unlearn, rethink and relearn. Your mental agility not only affects your problem-solving capacity, but also shapes your perspectives and options to increase your success and happiness in life. In this book, Adam Grant shares his years of research and experiments, and presents specific strategies for improving mental agility at individual, interpersonal and collective levels.
In this summary, you’ll learn:
• Why our beliefs, knowledge, insights, and even widely-held “truths” are often wrong, and how our psychological biases and flaws can restrict our perspectives.
• The 11 sets of strategies that you can apply to (i) improve individual rethinking (open your mind and update your views), (ii) improve interpersonal rethinking (open others’ minds and encourage them to rethink) and (iii) improve collective rethinking (to build lifelong learning communities).
Who should read this:
• Educators, parents, trainers, coaches and those in people-development roles;
• Anyone who wishes to expand your perspectives, improve your problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
