MCKINSEY'S 'T-SHAPED PRO' WITH HOWARD GARDNER'S 'FIVE MINDS FOR THE FUTURE'
Dilip Mukerjea and I spend an inordinate amount of time in cyberspace to brainstorm a broad array of different ideas and multiple perspectives.
Prior to moving to Vietnam from Singapore, he often popped into my residence in Jurong West to have our regular "pow wow", followed by chilling out with "teh c" (milked tea) in the nearby food court.
In fact, the cafe on the ground floor of the National Library Building in Singapore had also been our regular "springboard".
We are full-time dedicated and energetic fellow explorers in the field of life-long and life-wide learning, including creative explorations
As shown above is just one of the recent productive outcomes from our cyberspace "pow wow".
What we have done is what I like to call, a "proactively combinatorial" initiative, whereby McKinsey's original idea of a 'T-Shaped Pro' is pitched against Howard Gardner's 'Five Minds for the Future', just to make the composite idea more future savvy.
The adage, "Two Heads Are Better Than One", is very true. More importantly, "Knowledge Shared is Power Squared."
