Adventures of a Polymath

Do you find yourself to be frustrated by the limitations of your technical specialization? Are you constantly wanting to create and solve problems, only to be forced into a tiny box by your employer? Do you constantly feel like you may not fit in with the way others think? You may be a polymath. That’s a good thing because according to Harvard Business Review article by Kyle Weins, “We desperately need people with the ability to see big picture solutions” Learn more about this expansive identity, and get a glimpse of how to be successful in a lifelong technology career, regardless of this industry that forces you to specialize. Learn how to embrace your power of generalization and use it to master and integrate multiple disciplines rather than trying to learn more and more about less and less.
