The Rise of Superman

As the author of The Rise of Superman and co-founder and director of research at the Flow Genome Project, Steven Kotler is one of the world’s leading experts on ultimate human performance. In this riveting talk, he provides a stunning tour of current research, primarily focusing on “flow states”—an optimal state of consciousness where we both feel our best and perform our best. Researchers now know that flow sits at the heart of almost every athletic championship; underpins most major scientific breakthroughs; and accounts for significant progress in the arts. In business, its impact has been substantial. Coders in flow built the internet; video game designers in flow built the video game industry. “Flow state percentage”—which is the amount of time one’s employees spend in flow—has been called the most important management metric for building great innovation teams. As a result of all of this, an increasing number of Fortune 500 companies have put the cultivation of flow at the heart of their corporate philosophies. So what is this mysterious state? How does it work its magic? And—if this really is the secret to ultimate human performance—how can we get more of it in our personal and professional lives?

Creating an Age of Abundance

Based on the “New York Times” best-selling book, “Abundance,” Kotler lays out how we will soon be able to meet and exceed the basic needs of every man, woman and child on the planet and explains how Abundance for all is within our grasp. This bold, contrarian view—backed up by exhaustive research—introduces our near-term future, where exponentially growing technologies and three other powerful forces are conspiring to better the lives of billions. Since the dawn of humanity, a privileged few have lived in stark contrast to the hardscrabble majority. Conventional wisdom says this gap cannot be closed. But it is closing—fast. The lecture documents how four forces—exponential technologies, the DIY innovator, the Technophilanthropist, and the Rising Billion—are conspiring to solve our biggest problems. “Abundance” establishes hard targets for change and lays out a strategic roadmap for governments, industry and entrepreneurs, giving us plenty of reason for optimism.
