If you’re a jack-of-all-trades, this masterful talk will help you value your “multipotential.”
Are you a jack-of-all-trades, master of none? Society once viewed such individuals as fickle drifters, but author Emilie Wapnick takes a contrarian view. She calls people with curiosity about many different fields “multipotentialites” and explains why they frequently bring more to the table than specialists and boast characteristics that are in high demand in today’s complex work environment. getAbstract recommends Wapnick’s polished talk to anyone who resists the pressure to focus on one discipline in favor of exploring myriad domains.
