Ken Robinson is a writer, researcher, adviser, teacher and speaker who is passionate about transforming the culture of education for a richer conception of human creativity and intelligence.

For those who want to change career path and don’t know where to start, or for all those who just want to know more about their inner talents, Finding your Element, is the perfect starting point. This book is about how to uncover your passions and talents in order to transform your life, just that! Ken Robinson provides several techniques that help you find the personal and unique talents that lie within you. Through simple exercises, Ken Robinson helps his readers figure out what they are good at and what they actually love to do and what makes them feel happy. You’re likely to find your talents in multiples as you go through the book.

Robinson identifies three core principles within the book:

  • Your life is unique, nobody has lived it before, nor will live it on your behalf!
  • You create your own life, meaning you are an active player, as a creative and imaginative being, you choose your path.
  • Life is organic, it keeps changing with one’s interests and personality on the one hand and circumstances and opportunities on the other.
  • And because Ken Robinson believes that your mind-set is key, the book also offers exercises to help you find your tribes to be able to connect with like-minded people who share your elements. A bit like here at Driven Woman, where we support and inspire each other.
