Have you encountered difficulties describing what you do to other people? Have you ever labelled yourself in order to be understood? Is there a difference in the way that a generalist and a specialist can stay relevant? If you had to design an approach to education fit for the twenty-first century, what would it look like? How do you live a life of meaning if you live in more than one world?
During an era still dominated by hyperspecialism and experts with 'the one right answer', the neo-generalist defies easy classification. They are tricksters who traverse multiple domains, living between categories and labels. Encompassing rather than rejecting, the neo-generalist is both specialist and generalist; a restless multidisciplinarian, who is forever learning. The neo-generalist brings together diverse people,synthesising ideas and practice, addressing the big issues that confront us in order to shape a better future. They are curious, responsive, connective.
In The Neo-Generalist, Kenneth Mikkelsen and Richard Martin examine what it is like to be in frequent motion on the specialist-generalist continuum. To illustrate their idea, they draw on stories from numerous disciplines and cultures; from business, art, science, education, activism and sport. In so doing, they explore the characteristics and behaviours of individuals who give expression to their neo-generalism, highlighting the social and organisational benefits they enable. These are border-crossing leaders, innovators, creators and explorers who are already stewarding tomorrow's world.

Never before in history have, we been more educated, wealthier, and lived longer with more opportunities in life. Conversely, we have never been more stressed, anxious, depressed or lonely. In One Life
, the philosopher and business executive Morten Albæk investigates this paradox and the absurdity that all of the world’s impressive socio-economic advancements have not been translated into more existential wellbeing.
It is critical to understand why those of us, especially in prosperous countries with high living standards, continue to get sick, particularly due to work-related stress and poor leadership. The cure is not more ‘work-life balance’, but that we stop separating our persona into a working human being and private human being, and instead see ourselves as one human being with one life. That one life should be as meaningful as possible; it is meaning – not happiness – that is the most important basic ingredient for the sustainability of our lives, our businesses and our society.
