Revue de presse :

“Todd Rose has achieved a rare feat: he is both provocative and right. He overturns our fundamental assumptions about talent, and offers an empowering way to rethink the world. With exciting stories, fresh data, and bold ideas, this book is far better than average.” ( Adam Grant, Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take and Originals)

“Consistently mind-blowing!” ( Dan Heath, co-author of the New York Times bestsellers Made to Stick, Switch, and Decisive)

“Fascinating and engaging. Todd Rose dispels the myth that our success can be divined by a simple number or average, whether a grade, a score in a standardized test, or ranking at work. The End of Average will help everyone—and I mean everyone—live up to their potential.” ( Amy Cuddy, professor at Harvard Business School, and author of Presence)

“Todd Rose shows that everything we think we know about ‘average’ performance is wrong. In fact, our one-dimensional understanding of achievement—our search for the average score, average grade, average talent—has seriously underestimated human potential. This book is readable, enlightening, and way above average.” ( Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell Is Human and Drive)

“Todd Rose’s thought-provoking book challenges the explanatory power of the everyday term ‘average,’ opening our minds to new ways of conceptualizing human variation and human potentials.” ( Howard Gardner, author of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness Reframed)

“In the midst of a war for talent, we miss opportunities to find it. This stunning book shows how almost all measures we use reduce complicated individuals to one-dimensional beings...[and] overlook how talent, context, and disposition fold together to create individual uniqueness. I couldn’t put this book down.” ( John Seely Brown, independent co-chair of Deloitte’s Center for the Edge and coauthor of The Social Life of Information, The Power of Pull and The New Culture of Learning)

“Rose will change the way you see culture, school, work and everyone around you. Taylorism is officially dead. With compelling stories and an engaging style, he transforms our understanding of who we are and what’s important.” ( Seth Godin, author of We Are All Weird and Stop Stealing Dreams)

“The future belongs to enterprises that learn how to value individual employees and individual students, and Dr. Rose’s eye-opening account of the fascinating new science of the individual shows a practical path to the adoption of individuality.” ( Nolan Bushnell, founder of Atari, Inc., and author of Finding the Next Steve Jobs)

“A must read for anyone who serves or creates solutions for other human beings. It serves not only as a guide for how to rethink our systems but in many ways is the best self-help book I’ve ever read.” ( Jim Shelton, Chief Impact Officer, 2U, Inc., and former United States Deputy Secretary of Education)

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Are you above average? Is your child an A student? Is your employee an introvert or an extrovert? Every day we are measured against the yardstick of averages, judged according to how closely we come to it or how far we deviate from it.

The assumption that metrics comparing us to an average—like GPAs, personality test results, and performance review ratings—reveal something meaningful about our potential is so ingrained in our consciousness that we don’t even question it. That assumption, says Harvard’s Todd Rose, is spectacularly—and scientifically—wrong.

In The End of Average, Rose, a rising star in the new field of the science of the individual shows that no one is average. Not you. Not your kids. Not your employees. This isn’t hollow sloganeering—it’s a mathematical fact with enormous practical consequences. But while we know people learn and develop in distinctive ways, these unique patterns of behaviors are lost in our schools and businesses which have been designed around the mythical “average person.” This average-size-fits-all model ignores our differences and fails at recognizing talent. It’s time to change it.

Weaving science, history, and his personal experiences as a high school dropout, Rose offers a powerful alternative to understanding individuals through averages: the three principles of individuality. The jaggedness principle (talent is always jagged), the context principle (traits are a myth), and the pathways principle (we all walk the road less traveled) help us understand our true uniqueness—and that of others—and how to take full advantage of individuality to gain an edge in life.

Read this powerful manifesto in the ranks of Drive, Quiet, and Mindset—and you won’t see averages or talent in the same way again.

Description du livre Blackstone Audiobooks. No binding. État : New. Audio CD. The rising star and face of the new field science of the individual draws from the latest psychological and sociological research to show that success is found in individual strengths and weaknesses that dont fit along any average curvea powerful manifesto for change in the ranks of Emotional Intelligence and The Power of Habit. Modern science has proven that people behave and learn in distinctive ways. And yet these individual patterns get lost in our institutions of opportunityfrom education to the workforcewhich remain rooted in the misguided belief that statistical averages are good enough to understand individuals and identify their unique talents. Standardized tests, grading systems, job applicant profiling, performance reviewsthey invariably ignore our differences and ultimately fail at measuring our capacity for success. In this first popular book on the science of the individual, Todd Rose, a pioneer in the field draws on the latest research to show how, when we focus on individual findings rather than group findings or averages, we can rethink the world and everyones potential in it. By understanding the three principles of individualitythe principle of the jagged profile, the principle of context, and the principle of pathwayswe can avoid setting up ourselves and those we are tasked with helping succeed (our children, students, employees) for repeated failure and instead find the right path for success. The End of Average reminds us that we are not anything close to averagebecause the average is a statistical mythand presents a new way of understanding and maximizing everyones potential. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Audio CD. N° de réf. du libraire 9781504645713
