Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World

by Adam Grant

Originals addresses the challenge of improving the world from the perspective of becoming original: choosing to champion novel ideas and values that go against the grain, battle conformity, and buck outdated traditions. How can we originate new ideas, policies, and practices without risking it all?

Using surprising studies and stories spanning business, politics, sports, and entertainment, Adam 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. Seriously, the case studies are amazing - I learned a LOT about Warby Parker!

We'll meet for a casual and connected one hour (plus a little extra ) chat. We invite you to read a little of the book, the whole book, the beginning and end of the book, then come with ideas, questions and inspiration. . .

. . . and get ready to meet other folks pursuing that inching toward being their own original. See you soon!
