The End of Average

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How does one succeed in a world that values uniformity? How does an “average” person go beyond their own expectations? Todd Rose, cofounder and president of The Center for Individual Opportunity and director of the Mind, Brain, and Education program at Harvard Graduate School, digs into science-based research on how to minimize failures and maximize potential. His new book, The End of Average, Rose expounds on his findings and discusses the “principles of individuality,” which can help us all achieve success in life. In this game-changing talk, Rose explains that success is found in individual strengths and even weaknesses—and how we are nothing close to “average.”
