Reading his book helps you pinpoint the search we must all make to achieve the best in us." --Gillian Lynne, choreographer, Cats and The Phantom of the Opera "While the world is changing faster than ever, our organizations, our schools, and too often our minds are locked in the habits of the past.

Descripción del producto
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.
