Thoughts on education, parenting, society, business and life.
This week’s guest is Keynote Speaker and author of ‘Excellent Sheep’ William Deresiewicz.
Bill tells us of a gaping void we have in our midst. Children are being raised to do what they think their parents want more than what they want themselves. A huge number of third level students are afraid to study what they want and instead chose subjects that are “accepted” and “expected”.
We talk how this originates in the home with “Tiger Parents”, we discuss the problems of pressure and aimlessness on the campuses and the so-called “Stanford Duck Syndrome”.
We discuss the true meaning of diversity and how corporations can harness it for the future.
We discuss the inequality of the education system and how it is no wonder that GroupThink is alive and well. Bill also informs us of how presidential candidates all follow the same path of education.
Finally, Bill offers some sound advice to break the cycle so we stop producing ‘Excellent Sheep’
