This event is presented in partnership with Meridian International Center, a nonpartisan, nonprofit diplomacy center that connects leaders through culture and collaboration to drive solutions for global challenges.
The bestselling author of Give and Take and Originals examines the critical art of rethinking: learning to question your opinions and open other people's minds, which can position you for excellence at work and wisdom in life.
Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know reveals that we don't have to believe everything we think or internalize everything we feel. It's an invitation to let go of views that are no longer serving us well and prize mental flexibility over foolish consistency. If knowledge is power, knowing what we don't know is wisdom.
