The McColl School of Business will host Karen Geiger and Prasad Kaipa for a discussion of the difference between smartness and wisdom.
We live in a time of fast-paced change and increasing complexity. Lots of very smart people are wrestling with similar problems, trying to find the same solutions, in the same way. If you are taking the same path, you have reduced chance of success.
Join Karen Geiger and Prasad Kaipa to learn a new response- that of cultivating your wisdom, rather than relying on being smart. Learn what a wise approach is, how this can set you apart, make you successful, and also make a meaningful difference in the world.
