Daniel H. Pink is the author of five provocative books about the changing world of work — including the long-running New York Times bestseller, A Whole New Mind, and the #1 New York Times bestseller, Drive. His books have been translated into 33 languages.
A free agent himself, Dan held his last real job in the White House, where he served from 1995 to 1997 as chief speechwriter to Vice President Al Gore. He also worked as an aide to U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich and in other positions in politics and government.
It's no surprise that his one Talk has flooded the educational circuit and helped to transform the way we, as educators, think about our practice. If you haven't had the pleasure of viewing "The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us," you can click on it here. RSA took his talk and animated it. I've seen this clip about two dozen times. I show pieces of it in many of the presentations I do and have sat alongside many colleagues as they view it for the first time. In fact, my elementary shared this same video in one of our meetings this year. If you've seen it before, I know you'll enjoy it again.
Pink's work transcends into a variety of professional landscapes. Whether you're in sales, teaching, parenting, or logistics, you can take away some big ideas from his work.
I'm excited to announce that Dan has just launched the release of his NEW book, To Sell is Human. He is currently on the road for the next two months promoting this book.
He and I have been talking back and forth over the past year about an idea we're working on together. Through these discussions, I asked if it would be alright to share the release of his new book with Kleinspiration readers. He graciously agreed and mentioned that he'd contribute an autographed copy to a reader - WOW, right?!? Here is a trailer to preview his book...
