Description
The #1 New York Times bestseller that examines how people can champion new ideas in their careers and everyday life—and how leaders can fight groupthink, from the author of Think Again and co-author of Option B

“Filled with fresh insights on a broad array of topics that are important to our personal and professional lives.”—The New York Times DealBook

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, COO of Facebook and author of Lean In

With Give and Take, Adam Grant not only introduced a landmark new paradigm for success but also established himself as one of his generation’s most compelling and provocative thought leaders. In Originals he again addresses the challenge of improving the world, but now 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becoming original: choosing to champion novel ideas and values that go against the grain, battle conformity, and buck outdated traditions.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, 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. 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. The payoff is a set of groundbreaking insights about rejecting conformity and improving the status quo.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Calm conviction, thoughtful expression, and sincere emotion aptly describe Fred Sanders's narration of this work. As such, it fits squarely with Grant's message that a true original (in the workplace or the world) is not some rarified individual or whiz-bang wunderkind or even the loudest person in the room. An original is potentially anyone in the room. Everyone has the capacity for originality, once the concept of "originality" is clearly understood. Grant's theories are refreshingly grounded, logical, and actionable; Sanders reinforces them with his unaffected yet engaging delivery. Skip the belabored reading of Sandberg's foreword and head straight to the substance--of which there is plenty for the rank and file, executives, members of minorities, parents, and political/social activists.
