The ability to rethink is a superpower. Being stubborn in our thinking is not the flex that many people think it is. Navigating new possibilities as we grown and learn about the world around us can be tricky, but it’s also a necessity. Join us in June to discuss “Think Again–The Power of Knowing What You Don’t Know” by bestselling author Adam Grant.

From the book jacket:

Intelligence is usually seen as the ability to think and learn, but in a rapidly changing world it might matter more that we can rethink and unlearn.

Organizational psychologist Adam Grant is an expert on opening other people’s minds–and our own. As Wharton’s top-rated professor and the bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take, he tries to argue like he’s right but listen like he’s wrong.

Think Again invites us to let go of views that are no longer serving us well and prize mental flexibility, humility, and curiosity over foolish consistency. if knowledge is power, knowing what we don’t know is wisdom.
At this meetup, we will discuss the author’s insights relating to the power of rethinking what we think we may know and how it can help us as individuals and as a society. And, as usual, if you don’t get a chance to read the book, you are still encouraged to attend! Message me if you’d like to attend in person, as space is limited. But you can always join us on Zoom as well 😊
