The Uncertainty Effect (May 2023)
In an age of pandemic and economic precarity, how can we learn to embrace uncertainty in our workplaces, schools and businesses? And how can ‘uncertainty tolerance’ help us to build resilience, foster social justice and deal with the ‘big issues’, such as climate change?
Award-winning educator Michelle Lazarus shows us how uncertainty tolerance can help. From how teachers can prepare students for an uncertain workforce, to reducing burnout in trainee doctors, to confronting the effects of climate change, this smart, practical popular-science book has an affirming message: we may not be able to predict the future, but we can learn to navigate it. Drawing on Michelle’s original research, it will appeal to readers of Jonica Newby’s Beyond Climate Grief, Emily Ehler’s Hope is a Verb and Atul Gawande’s The Checklist Manifesto.
