Understanding how to learn and master new and difficult skills is essential in today’s rapidly changing world. And Scott H. Young, a committed lifelong learning, blogger, and author of the newly released book, Ultralearning: Master Hard Skills, Outsmart the Competition, and Accelerate Your Career, has spent the past decade becoming an expert on how to successfully do this.
Through completing a wide range of self-education projects—things like completing MIT’s four-year computer science curriculum in 12 months and learning four languages in one year—Scott, an ultralearner himself, has really walked the walk when it comes to pushing our ideas about learning to the limits.
In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Jeff talks with Scott about his book Ultralearning, including the projects that led to writing it, the principles behind it, and how learning businesses can apply the research to help the learners they serve.
