Sharing with the audience how to master new skills and become an expert in those you already have, Joshua Foer explains the three different stages we all go through when learning a new skill in his developing expertise keynote.
In his talk, the journalist and bestselling author illustrates how stepping outside our comfort zone may lead us to failure sometimes, but it's for all the right reasons.
"Ok-ness," Foer argues, "is the enemy of greatness."
Foer believes we need to study ourselves when we fail to better understand what we are doing wrong before we can truly achieve remarkable things. In the developing expertise keynote, he highlights strategies that teach acquirable skills in any field and four principles that stop people from staying in the skill hindering “OK Plateau” phase.
