How to Become an Expert - A Conversation with Dr. Anders Ericsson, Author of PEAK - Part 1 of 2

A conversation with the World's Expert on How to Become an Expert and the author of PEAK

Most of us recognize the value of becoming an expert at something that makes us more valuable in society. But, most of us do not know how to go about it. Dr. Ericsson is perhaps the world’s expert on how to become an expert. He has conducted extensive research with academic rigor for over 30 years and, listen to this, he has found that the brain can be rewired to extend its capabilities at ANY age. So, you too can learn new things and you too can become an expert.

 

This is Part 1 of two. We discuss:

  1. How you too can develop business savvy
  2. The difference between intelligence and smartness
  3. The difference between abilities and capabilities
  4. What is the value of learning to learn
  5. How can you become an expert just as many consultants claim you can?
  6. What is the right kind of practice required to become an expert?
  7. How should you choose the right business advisor or coach?
  8. How can you get out of your comfort zone?

 

P.S. I realized a rather obvious thing. Most of us read articles like this but never act on it. You can only learn and get better results from the insights when you L.P.T. – listen, practice deliberately and tell/teach others, whether they are colleagues, friends or family. Implement the principles of developing expertise from Dr. Anders Ericsson. I hope you L.P.T., whatever you glean from this.

Business thinking is the examination of a simple question “How can every person provide value and receive value in return?” because that is what makes the world go around. We want to keep the content as open as we can to foster greater business thinking, spread ‘business thinking’ around the world and raise living standards (click to read ‘My Why’). WE PROMISE to deliver ‘business thinking’ value every day!

Companies like Google and Facebook have (allegedly) made ‘content free’ while making tens of billions with your personal information and on the backs of people like us who provide original and curated content. Yet, firms like ours spend considerable time and money to bring you original and curated content like the ‘silent killers of success’ and insightful interviews with the likes of Dr. Marshall Goldsmith and Dr. Ellen Langer - see https://businessthinking.com/podcasts
