    In his powerful new book, internationally acclaimed change agent and simplifier Bill Jensen maps your future and the future of work as no one else could. What are your toughest choices as you lead yourself and others into the future? Jensen has spent years studying that one question, and Future Strong answers it fully, simply, powerfully. Despite all the hyperventilating and shiny-object syndrome, technology and massive disruptions do not determine your future. Your future reveals itself only after you have made deeply personal choices about how you will embrace those changes. Jensen here reveals the five personal choices that determine your relationship with the future, choices relating to:Inner truths,Soul on fire,Humble self,Sacrifice, andReliance. Working through each choice is crucial. Because most of today’s approaches are not future strong, they are future shackled. You can and must change that. Now. Future Strong is the road map leaders and individuals need to create strong futures for their themselves and their teams. Each choice is narrated by leaders sharing their extremely compelling stories, followed by practical and easy-to-use how-tos. Jensen’s goal for every listener is to know, feel, and be able to declare #IAmFutureStrong. What an amazing future awaits you! Limitless possibilities, yours to shape. If you so choose. Because your choices are where your future begins.

    From two leading experts in education and entrepreneurship, an urgent call for the radical re-imagining of American education so that we better equip students for the realities of the twenty-first century economy. Today more than ever, we prize academic achievement, pressuring our children to get into the “right” colleges, have the highest GPAs, and pursue advanced degrees. But while students may graduate with credentials, by and large they lack the competencies needed to be thoughtful, engaged citizens and to get good jobs in our rapidly evolving economy. Our school system was engineered a century ago to produce a work force for a world that no longer exists. Alarmingly, our methods of schooling crush the creativity and initiative young people need to thrive in the twenty-first century. In Most Likely to Succeed, bestselling author and education expert Tony Wagner and venture capitalist Ted Dintersmith call for a complete overhaul of the function and focus of American schools, sharing insights and stories from the front lines, including profiles of successful students, teachers, parents, and business leaders. Most Likely to Succeed presents a new vision of American education, one that puts wonder, creativity, and initiative at the very heart of the learning process and prepares students for today’s economy. This audiobook offers parents and educators a crucial guide to getting the best for their children and a roadmap for policymakers and opinion leaders.

    America has been steadily sliding in global education rankings for decades. In particular, our students are increasingly unable to compete globally in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields. According to the National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP), in 2010 only 26 percent of high school seniors in the United States scored at or above a proficient level in math. Another 36 percent were failing. Only 3 percent scored at an advanced level in math, and only 1 percent scored at an advanced level in science. Students in K-12 across the United States struggle with STEM subjects, often because the subjects are poorly presented or badly taught. When students reach college, they choose to pursue non-STEM degrees, and too many struggle to find jobs upon graduation. Meanwhile, United States employers are having an increasingly hard time filling STEM jobs. Economic projections for the next decade show we will need approximately 1 million more professionals in STEM fields than our education system will produce. If we want to maintain our historical preeminence in science and technology, we must increase the number of students graduating with STEM degrees by 34 percent each year. One Nation Under Taught offers a clear solution, providing a blueprint for helping students fall in love with STEM subjects, and giving them the tools they need to succeed and go on for further study in these fields. The audiobook challenges our whole way of thinking about education and encourages educators and policy-makers at all levels to work together to make our schools places that promote curiosity and inspire a love of learning. If we do not change course, we will set our students and our country on the path to a lifetime of poverty. But if we can implement the reforms Dr. Bertram suggests, we can achieve long-lasting prosperity for our children and our nation as a whole.
