Josh Joseph on the Future of Education, Finding Our Element and Leveraging Values to Achieve Greatness
Education today has a totally different paradigm: It is no longer confined to a classroom or a desk. It is no longer kept in the domain of the youth. Education can, and should be, utilized by everyone regardless of age. As education pushes past the boundaries where it has previously been constrained, it is changing what’s possible. In this podcast, I interview Josh Joseph, Senior Vice President of Yeshiva University, one of the best private colleges in the United States.
Josh shares his insights on the future of education and its implication for each of us. We speak about the importance of pursuing your passions, honing your skills, and making your talents marketable. As an educator, Josh explains why each of us should “find our element,” and how a commitment to core values will enable us to achieve personal greatness.
Professor Steven Brown was rejected from his first job after earning his doctorate. Why? Because he was disabled. He was totally qualified, and initially accepted, but the company didn’t want to hire someone with a disability. This rejection may have discouraged most people, but not him. It led to three decades of supporting, defending and advocating for the disabled community. He became a professor, author and co-founder of the Institute on Disability Culture. In this Unlocking Greatness interview, Steven opens our eyes to a world many people can’t even imagine, teaches us how to follow our passion, overcome challenge and demand that every human being be treated with respect.
Peter Brown has tackled one of the most important areas for personal greatness: how to learn. In this episode of Unlocking Greatness, we delve into Peter’s latest book, Make It Stick, to see how the common approach to learning new material is not the most effective. He brings examples of neurosurgeons, Marines, and football coaches, to show a unconventional approach to thinking and learning. This interview will show you how to train your mind to “make information stick.”
