Quiz Time: Which college degree is more valuable? An MBA or an MFA (that's Masters of Fine Arts).
Dan Pink says the answer is clearly an MFA - - at least it will BECOME more valuable over the next ten years.
Dan Pink is the author of A Whole New Mind -- Moving From The Information Age To The Conceptual Age. In this amazing book Dan describes why many of the "left brain" jobs are moving to India and Asia (outsourced) and why "right brain" jobs (jobs requiring creativity, non-linear thinking, etc.) are going to soon become more valuable here in the USA.
This book may change the way you look at the world. It did for me.
After reading the book I contacted Dan to setup an interview because I wanted to get his take on how this coming shift will effect teams. We had a great conversation and I recorded it for your listening pleasure.

Dan changed the title of his book to: "A Whole New Mind -- Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future"
Oprah LOVES this book and when she gave the commencement speech at Stanford to the 4,500 students in the graduating class, she gave each a copy of Dan's book. CLICK HERE to view Dan interviewed by Oprah. Dan says it's his favorite interview ever (I'm hoping the one we did is a close second).
