How do we save our jobs from the robots? Darden School of Business Professor Edward Hess says we can keep our jobs by consciously and continuously developing the qualities that make us human, and hyper-learning is the key.

"Ed Hess's Hyper-Learning is uniquely practical and is the essential starting point for charting new ways of thinking, living, working, leading, and being fulfilled in our new world."
--Gary Roughead, Admiral, US Navy (retired) former Chief of Naval Operations

The Digital Age will raise the question of how we humans will stay relevant in the workplace. To stay relevant, we have to be able to excel cognitively, behaviorally, and emotionally in ways that technology can't.

Professor Ed Hess believes that requires us to become Hyper-Learners- continuously learning, unlearning, and relearning at the speed of change. To do that, we have to overcome our reflexive ways of being- seeking confirmation of what we believe, emotionally defending our beliefs and our ego, and seeking cohesiveness of our mental models.

Hyper-Learning requires a new way of being and a radical new way of working. In Part 1 of this how-to book, Hess takes a practical workbook approach and helps readers create their Hyper-Learning Mindset, choose and embrace their needed Hyper-Learning Behaviors, and adopt their daily Hyper-Learning Practices. In Part 2, Hess focuses on how to humanize the workplace to optimize Hyper-Learning. Featuring case studies of three business leaders and two public companies, this book shows how to harness the power of human emotions, choices, and behaviors to enable the highest levels of human cognitive, emotional, and behavioral performance--individually and organizationally.
