Rookie Smarts addresses the questions every experienced professional faces: Will my knowledge and skills become obsolete and irrelevant? Will a young, inexperienced newcomer upend my company or me? How can I keep up? The answer is to stay fresh, keep learning, and know when to think like a rookie.
Unique concept and a great speaking voice

Great insights on skills and qualities that are so important to maintaining engagement and relevance in one's field. I have been in education for almost 30 years as a teacher and administrator. I spent seven years in a position where I felt useless and tired. I am now finishing my first year in a position with the same title but with a boss and team that views my job very differently. I am put in situations that are just a bit above my ability and am required to use my mind again. There was so much I took from the book to go forward into my next school year; not only for myself, but for those individuals whom I supervise.
