Michael Gelb Genius at work

Author and consultant Michael Gelb gave a talk March 21 during the eighth annual Virginia Festival of the Book about his latest work, Discover Your Genius: How to Think Like History’s Ten Most Revolutionary Minds — one of those being Thomas Jefferson’s, of course. Gelb spent several days at U.Va. with a fellowship at the Darden School’s Batten Institute, which focuses on entrepreneurship and leadership.

A retired professional juggler who once performed with the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan, and founder of the High Performance Learning Center, Gelb has been a professional speaker and organizational consultant for 20 years, concentrating on ways to use creative thinking methods in work and life.
