The value of the neo-generalist at work | Marginalia

In the second part of The Neo-Generalist, we explore some of the characteristics and behaviours that we associate with the concept. Among them are: An acceptance that we are always in beta, never the finished product. An understanding that we never truly know (recognising that the history of scientific discovery teaches us that what was correct yesterday is wrong tomorrow; that the bounds of the unknown grow exponentially). A passion for learning fuelled by never-sated curiosity. A tolerance of ambiguity. An ability to adapt to change. A willingness to test out the crazy hypothesis, as an opportunity to either create or educate. Plus a host of skills that we associate with leadership, sense-making and communication.
