How do we save our jobs from the robots? Darden School of Business Professor Edward Hess says we can keep our jobs by consciously and continuously developing the qualities that make us human, and hyper-learning is the key.

How will you pursue a meaningful life when smart technology takes over most of the jobs that humans currently do? Darden School of Business Professor Edward Hess says the answer is hyper-learning- developing our uniquely human qualities as agile, adaptive, iterative learners without fear or ego inhibiting that learning.

In the digital age, humans will succeed by doing what technology can't do well- being creative, imaginative, and innovative; engaging in higher-level critical thinking; making decisions in environments where there is a lot of uncertainty and little data; and connecting and collaborating with fellow humans. Hyper-learning is vital for optimizing every one of these tasks.

Hess describes the core mindsets and behaviors that enable hyper-learning for individuals and teams and includes case studies of four business leaders who created personal hyper-learning development plans. This book is about harnessing the power of human emotions, choices, and behaviors to enable the highest levels of human cognitive, emotional, and behavioral performance.
