Description
The author of Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success, workplace psychologist Adam Grant again addresses the challenge of improving the world, this time from the approach of becoming original, exploring how individuals can champion new ideas and how leaders can encourage originality in their organizations. Grant explains how to recognize a good idea, speak up without getting silenced, build a coalition of allies, choose the right time to act, and manage fear and doubt, as well as how parents and teachers can nurture originality in children and how leaders can fight groupthink to build cultures that welcome dissent. Learn from an entrepreneur who pitches his start-ups by highlighting the reasons not to invest, a woman at Apple who challenged Steve Jobs from three levels below, an analyst who overturned the rule of secrecy at the CIA, a billionaire financial wizard who fires employees for failing to criticize him, and a TV executive who didn't even work in comedy but saved Seinfeld from the cutting-room floor.

"Reading Originals made me feel like I was seated across from Adam Grant at a dinner party, as one of my favorite thinkers thrilled me with his insights and his wonderfully new take on the world."ŚMalcolm Gladwell
