"But it's my analytical left brain that's telling me that the skills we value today are no longer sufficient in the world of business," Pink said. "Nursing, for example, is a whole-minded profession. You need the analytical chops along with a sense of empathy."
One of Pink's favorite quotes is from Samuel Taylor Coleridge, the English poet who said: "The truth is, a great mind must be androgynous."
"Androgyny is the powerful ability to toggle between two modes of thinking," said Pink. "That's the key to a whole new mind."
