HR Magazine;May2006, Vol. 51 Issue 5, p32
The article presents the topics that were discussed by author Daniel Pink during his opening speech at the 29th Annual Society for Human Resource Management Global Conference & Exposition held on March 20 to 22, 2006, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Pink is the author of "Free Agent Nation," and "A Whole New Mind." Pink stressed that left-brain skills such as logic, linear thinking and rule-based analysis, which were highly-valued before, are no longer sufficient to succeed in the global economy. What is more important are artistic skills, big-picture thinking and putting things in context, functions which are housed in the right-side of the brain.
