The Element is the point at which natural talent meets personal passion- when people arrive at the element, they feel most themselves and inspired to achieve at their highest levels. What are the conditions that enable us to find ourselves in the element, and what are the conditions that stifle creativity? Sir Ken Robinson, in his new book The Element, outlines the path to a more creative and fulfilling life--and profiles may people-famous and otherwise-who have connected their natural aptitude with their personal passion and succeeded, despite obstacles in their way.
Sir Ken Robinson speaks to more than 50,000 people each year in a variety of settings and has worked with governments in the US, Europe and Asia, Fortune 500 companies including Microsoft, Nestle, IBM, Apple and a wide range of non profit organizations. His speech at the 2006 TED Conference (http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/ken_robinson_says_schools_kill_creativity.html ) has been downloaded over 2 million times, and he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2003 for his outstanding achievement in education and the arts. In 2005 he was named one of Time/CNN's "Principal Voices" and in 2008 was awarded the Peabody Medal for contributions to the arts and culture in the US. Robinson overcame childhood polio, and credits education for allowing him to be undefined by his disability.
