Samenvatting

WINNER of the Chartered Management Institute's (CMI's) Mangement Book of the Year Awards 2017, and a #1 New York Times Bestseller! Extraordinary' JJ Abrams Fascinating' Arianna Huffington Inspire creativity and change' Richard Branson One of my favourite thinkers' Malcolm Gladwell Masterful' Peter Thiel One of the great social scientists of our time' Susan Cain, bestselling author of Quiet Fresh research, counter-intuitive insights, lively writing, practical calls to action' The Financial Times The New York Times bestselling author examines how people can drive creative, moral, and organisational progress-and how leaders can encourage originality in their organisations. How can we originate new ideas, policies and practices without risking it all? Adam Grant shows how to improve the world by championing novel ideas and values that go against the grain, battling conformity, and bucking outdated traditions. 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. Parents will learn how to nurture originality in children, and leaders will discover how to fight groupthink to build cultures that welcome dissent. Told through dazzling case studies of people going against the grain, you'll encounter an entrepreneur who pitches the reasons not to invest, a woman at Apple who challenged Steve Jobs from three levels below, an analyst who challenged secrecy at the CIA, a billionaire financial wizard who fires employees who don't criticize him, and the TV executive who saved Seinfeld from the cutting room floor. Originals will give you groundbreaking insights about rejecting conformity and how to change the world.

Recensie(s)

ORIGINALS is one of the most important and captivating books I have ever read, full of surprising and powerful ideas. It will not only change the way you see the world; it might just change the way you live your life. And it could very well inspire you to change your world. * Sheryl Sandberg, bestselling author of LEAN IN * 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. * Malcolm Gladwell * After launching hundreds of businesses-from airlines to trains, music to mobile, and now a spaceline-my biggest challenges and successes have come from convincing other people to see the world differently. ORIGINALS reveals how that can be done and will help you inspire creativity and change. * Sir Richard Branson * This extraordinary, wildly entertaining book sheds new light on the Age of Disruption. What does it take to make a meaningful difference? And how can you apply this insight to your own life? By debunking myths of success stories, challenging long-held beliefs of process, and finding commonality among those who are agents of profound change, Adam Grant gives us a powerful new perspective on not just our place in the world, but our potential to shake it up entirely. * JJ Abrams, director of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, co-creator and executive producer of Lost, and cofounder of Bad Robot * Adam Grant is one of the great social scientists of our time * Susan Cain, author of QUIET *

    Als non-conformist, kan ik dit boek alleen maar aanbevelen. Er is zoveel in de wereld te ontdekken dan alleen maar dat we "verwacht worden te doen."
