IN THIS SUMMARY

In Humans Are Underrated, Geoff Colvin explains that computers are becoming increasingly more powerful and are performing many jobs more efficiently, more effectively, and less expensively than humans. He suggests that a new set of skills and characteristics will be vital in the future. Success will no longer require classroom-taught, left-brained skills; instead, people will build value through empathy, creativity, social sensitivity, storytelling, and the ability to build relationships in a manner that computers cannot achieve. Successful development and application of these new skills can result in better ideas, more loyal customers, and more effective teams than computers can accomplish alone.
