Originals

The Daily Q #138


InQuire more: Inspired by Wharton Professor and New York Times best-selling author Adam Grant’s new book “Originals: How Non-Conformists Move The World.”  Read TechCrunch’s interview  with Grant about the book; then listen to Grant’s fascinating conversation with NPR’s Krista Tippett during this episode of “On Being” – a wide-ranging talk about “Successful Givers, Toxic Takers, and The Life we Spend at Work.”

From Grant’s website:
“Originals is about how to champion new ideas and fight groupthink. Using surprising studies and stories spanning business, politics, sports, and entertainment, Grant explores 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; how parents and teachers can nurture originality in children; and how leaders can build cultures that welcome dissent.”
