Inhaltsangabe: There are 9 basic things that can significantly influence whether one's STEM career will be successful and fulfilling or not. These are the focus of The Brainiac Paradox, but there is much more ... Scientists, Technologists, Engineers, and Mathematicians (STEM) are widely accepted to be among society?s most intelligent people, and yet some struggle with something those on the other end of the cognitive spectrum may handle with ease: communication. This is the Brainiac Paradox and it has enormous implications for a society increasingly reliant on technological innovations to drive economic growth, and solutions to address rapidly evolving global challenges. Communication effectiveness largely determines whether one?s work is understood, approved, funded, staffed, supported and ultimately successful. The result of communication challenges is lost societal opportunities and the frustrated careers of some STEM professionals. The Brainiac Paradox tackles this subject head-on, providing relevant information and actionable solutions. Essentially, it is two books in one. The first half addresses the underlying issue, answering the questions of how, why, and so what. It explores various mind sciences research that would seem to suggest congenital causes, and shows how these dots can be connected for a possible overall explanation. It also explores environmental development factors that are contributors to this phenomenon, if not the outright source. The second half offers targeted assistance and prescriptive solutions, focusing on the nine factors author Mark Cornillie has found, based his more than 20 years of hands-on experience with this issue, to most impede the success of some STEM professionals. These solutions are provided within the framework of a methodology that will ensure lasting results. There is also a secondary audience group this book specifically addresses: loved ones as well as those who manage, mentor, work with, and are professionally reliant upon individuals directly affected by the Brainiac Paradox. Those with gifts for math, science and technology are a precious resource in this age. Yet, even as industry, government, and academia plead for more young people to pursue STEM degrees, the full potential of those currently in these fields is not realized. Finally there is a way to unleash that potential: The Brainiac Paradox.
