7 lessons on "A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future" by Daniel H. Pink:

Lesson 1: The Right Brain's Rise to Prominence
The traditional emphasis on left-brain skills, such as logic, analysis, and sequential processing, has dominated the world of business and education for decades. However, in "A Whole New Mind," Daniel Pink argues that the right brain's intuitive, empathetic, and pattern-recognition abilities are becoming increasingly important in today's rapidly changing world.

Lesson 2: The Six Right-Brain Skills for the 21st Century
Pink identifies six key right-brain skills that will be essential for success in the 21st century:

1. Design: The ability to create visually appealing and functional products, services, and experiences.

2. Storytelling: The ability to craft compelling narratives that connect with emotions and inspire action.

3. Symphony: The ability to see patterns and connections between seemingly disparate ideas.

4. Empathy: The ability to understand and share the feelings of others.

5. Play: The ability to approach work with a sense of curiosity, experimentation, and joy.

6. Meaning: The ability to find purpose and fulfillment in one's work.

Lesson 3: The Shift from Left-Brain to Right-Brain Dominance
Pink argues that the shift from an industrial to an information-based economy has led to a decline in the demand for traditional left-brain skills, while the demand for right-brain skills has increased. This shift is evident in the rise of creative professions, such as design, marketing, and entertainment.

Lesson 4: The Importance of Right-Brain Education
Pink calls for a reassessment of our educational systems, emphasizing the development of right-brain skills alongside traditional left-brain skills. He proposes a more holistic approach to education that nurtures creativity, empathy, and problem-solving abilities.

Lesson 5: Cultivating Right-Brain Thinking in the Workplace
Pink provides practical strategies for individuals and organizations to cultivate right-brain thinking in the workplace. He suggests fostering a culture of collaboration, encouraging experimentation, and rewarding creativity.

Lesson 6: The Right-Brain Revolution
Pink argues that the rise of the right brain is not just a change in the way we work; it is a fundamental shift in human consciousness. He suggests that we are moving towards a more holistic and interconnected way of understanding the world.

Lesson 7: Embracing the Right Brain's Potential.
