My guest today is David Epstein, New York Times bestselling author of Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World. In our discussion today you will hear the backstory of how he came to write this book, which is quite fascinating, very serendipitous, and not what you would expect. David’s research has found that while specialists still have a place and they are still needed, they have been overvalued in our society whereas generalists have been greatly undervalued. It is generalists who are most likely going to triumph in the future of work. And this is the topic we are focusing on in today’s discussion. Why are generalists more successful leaders? How can you develop your range? When did the idea of specialization start and why? David answer’s all these questions and more!
