Why Creative Types Will Rule the World

Posted: Updated:

People are often characterized by their strengths. If you're by-the-numbers and very analytical, you're branded as a left-brain type. If you're creative and artistic, you're a right-brain thinker. And the prevailing wisdom was that in business, the left-brainers rule. That is, until now.

Daniel Pink, author of A Whole New Mind: Why the Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future and his newest book, The Adventures of Johnny Bunko: The Last Career Guide You'll Ever Need, senses a change coming.

On this week's episode of Change Nation, Daniel explains how to use your creative side to move your career and your life into the future. Especially with all that is going on with the number crunchers of the world, what better time then now to channel your creativity!
