The groundbreaking international bestseller that will help you fulfil your true potential. The Element is the point at which natural talent meets personal passion. In this hugely influential book, world-renowned creativity expert Ken Robinson considers the child bored in class, the disillusioned employee and those of us who feel frustrated but can't quite explain why - and shows how we all need to reach our Element. Through the stories of people like Vidal Sassoon, Arianna Huffington and Matt Groening, who have recognized their unique talents and made a successful living doing what they love, Robinson explains how every one of us can find ourselves in our Element, and achieve everything we're capable of. With a wry sense of humour, Ken Robinson shows the urgent need to enhance creativity and innovation by thinking differently about ourselves. Above all, he inspires us to reconnect with our true self - it could just change everything. 'The Element offers life-altering insights about the discovery of your true best self' Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People 'A book that lightens and lifts the minds and hearts of all who read it' Susan Jeffers, author of Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway

"It is often said that education and training are the keys to the future. They are, but a key can be turned in two directions. Turn it one way andyou lock resources away, even from those they belong to. Turn it the otherway and you release resources and give people back to themselves. To realizeour true creative potential—in our organizations, in our schools and in our communities—we need to think differently about ourselves and to actdifferently towards each other. We must learn to be creative." —Ken Robinson PRAISE FOR OUT OF OUR MINDS "Ken Robinson writes brilliantly about the different ways in which creativity is undervalued and ignored . . . especially in our educational systems." —John Cleese "Out of Our Minds explains why being creative in today'sworld is a vital necessity. This book is not to be missed." —Ken Blanchard, co-author of The One-minute Manager and The Secret "If ever there was a time when creativity was necessary for the survival andgrowth of any organization, it is now. This book, more than any other I know, providesimportant insights on how leaders can evoke and sustain those creative juices." —Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor of Business, University of Southern California; Thomas S. Murphy Distinguished Rresearch Fellow, Harvard Business School; Best-selling Author, Geeks and Geezers "All corporate leaders should read this book." —Richard Scase, Author and Business Forecaster "This really is a remarkable book. It does for human resources what Rachel Carson's Silent Spring did for the environment." —Wally Olins, Founder, Wolff-olins "Books about creativity are not always creative. Ken Robinson's is a welcome exception" —Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, c.s. and d.j. Davidson Professor of Psychology, Claremont Graduate University; Director, Quality of Life Research Center; Best-selling Author, Flow "The best analysis I've seen of the disjunction between the kinds of intelligence that we have traditionally honored in schools and the kinds ofcreativity that we need today in our organizations and our society." —Howard Gardner, a. hobbs professor in cognition and education, Harvard Graduate School of Education, Best-selling Author, Frames of Mind

Are you in your element? Feeling on top of your game creatively? Want to know how to maximize your passion and potential?Are our school systems discouraging creativity and favouring academic measurement?The Element is the point at which natural talent meets personal passion. This groundbreaking new book is all about how every one of us can find our element, connecting with our true talents and fulfilling our creative potential.Creativity expert Ken Robinson believes that we are all born with tremendous natural capacities, but that we lose touch with them as we spend more time in the world. Whether it's a child bored in class, an employee being misused or just someone who feels frustrated but can't quite explain why, too many people don't know what they are really capable of achieving. Education, business and society as a whole are losing out.The Element draws on the stories of a wide range of people - from ex-Beatle Paul McCartney to Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons; from actress Meg Ryan to Broadway choreographer Gillian Lynne; and from writer Arianna Huffington to renowned physicist Richard Feynman and others, including business leaders and athletes - showing how all of them came to recognize their unique talents and were able to make a successful living doing what they love.With a wry sense of humour and a sense of optimism, Ken Robinson looks at the conditions that enable us to find ourselves in the element, and those that stifle that possibility. He shows that age and occupation are no barrier and he argues that there is a urgent need to enhance creativity and innovation by thinking differently about ourselves.

Creativity is critical. Out of Our Minds explores creativity: its value in business, its ubiquity in children, its perceived absence in many adults and the phenomenon through which it disappears — and offers a groundbreaking approach for getting it back. Author Sir Ken Robinson is an internationally recognised authority on creativity, and his TED talk on the subject is the most watched video in TED’s history. In this book, Sir Ken argues that organisations everywhere are struggling to fix a problem that originates in schools and universities. Organisations everywhere are competing in a world that changes in the blink of an eye – they need people who are flexible enough to adapt, and creative enough to find novel solutions to problems old and new. Out of Our Minds describes how schools, businesses and communities can work together to bring creativity out of the closet and realise its inherent value at every stage of life. This new third edition has been updated to reflect changing technologies and demographics, with updated case studies and coverage of recent changes to education. While education and training are the keys to the future, the key can also be turned the other way; locking people away from their own creativity. Only by actively fostering creativity can businesses unlock those doors and achieve their true potential. This book will help you to: Understand the importance of actively promoting creativity and innovation. Discover why creativity stagnates somewhere between childhood and adulthood. Learn how to re-awaken dormant creativity to help your business achieve more. Explore ways in which we can work together to keep creativity alive for everyone. Modern business absolutely demands creativity of thought and action. We're all creative as children — so where does it go? When do we lose it? Out of Our Minds has the answers, and clear solutions for getting it back.

The commonly held belief that you should ‘follow your passion’ is flawed. Many people believe that in order to be truly happy, you need to find and follow your one and only true passion. This is a very limiting approach to passion, and one not backed up by much research. In fact, recent research in the field of positive psychology has shown that you can live a more fulfilling life by choosing to pursue your whole life with passion. This has nothing to do with monetising the one thing that you love, but finding love in what you do. Susanna Halonen, also known as the Happyologist, introduces a new approach to passion that enables you to take control of your happiness. By highlighting the latest research in the field, including her own, Susanna explains how you can choose to unlock the passion inside you so that you can live a more fulfilling life. The secret to living life with passion is pursuing the passionate way of being, and the five keys to that secret are individually explored and discussed in this book. Each discussion is followed by questions of self-reflection that encourage you to create your own, unique action plan to start unlocking your passion. This book is an eye opener for those who want to understand the real science behind passion. It’s also a must-read for anyone who is looking for more fire, spark and positive energy in their lives and careers. Most of all, it’s a tool to help you to take a more proactive approach to unearthing your best self and setting out on the path towards passionate happiness. Praise for Screw Finding Your Passion: "Wanting happiness and knowing how to pursue it are two different things. Scientifically, happiness is a choice, not something you find. Using new research and practical tools, Halonen helps us change the formula for how we pursue passion, allowing us to find more ways of achieving our potential and creating joy." - Shawn Achor, positive psychology researcher and NYTimes bestselling author of The Happiness Advantage "It's very clear that Susanna Halonen is passionate about her work. And it's very clear that her work can help you unlock the passion within you." - Tal Ben-Shahar, author of international bestseller Happier "We all have times that life seems flat and not very fulfilling. Susanna's unique stance on passion will enable us to find that love for whatever we're doing right now." - Nina Grunfeld, founder of Life Clubs "This idea is so important it can't be ignored." - Elliot Newsome, founder and Managing Director of SKT Consulting
