Summary

Upgrading the future, one decision at a time.

It's no secret that we are preparing our dimpled darlings for a journey to a future filled with careers and opportunities that don't yet exist. How are we supposed to prepare our greatest and most precious investment, our children, for these unknowable pursuits of the future?

By focusing on the journey, not the final destination, because their journey will create their destination.

Raising Thinkers begins with an exploration of the possible futures that our children will inhabit as adults. It examines the skills that they will need most in these settings and what can reasonably be expected from the current school systems across the East and West. Drawing on the latest research in neuroscience and psychology, it covers the mechanics of high level, critical and creative thinking as well as how to coach emotional, social, and fluid intelligence in your growing thinker through a curiosity-based approach.

For parents scoping the journey of a lifetime, Raising Thinkers is an invaluable guide to helping your children make the best possible decisions that they can, because today's decisions will create their future.
