    Inhaltsangabe

    The number one New York Times best seller 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.

    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becoming original: choosing to champion novel ideas and values that go against the grain, battle conformity, and buck outdated traditions.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.

    One of those few books that demolishes convictions

    It certainly demolished many of my convictions. Procrastination is not a bad thing. Imagining the worse case scenario before a very big test can actually help. Venting can do more harm than good. Probably the best book of 2016 and hopefully read/listened by as many as possible in 2017. Great narrator performance by Fred Sanders and Susan Denaker!

    Lots of gold nuggets

    I rate this book high up together with two similar favorites of mine: Creativity Inc and The Power of habit. Grant's research combines psychology with sociology and organisational management. He uses these insights to provide a series of interesting lessons on originality and creativity, the underlying message being that we can all be originals once we understand and adopt these principles. It's one of those books that I'll have to listen to a couple of times until I understand all the information. In this sense, it's a bit dense. Also, I feel the story slows down after the first chapters. At times I found it difficult to releate some of the examples given with the concept of originality. Nevertheless, highly interesting and inspiring.

    Very thorough

    Very interesting book about how to foster originality. I found it to be very thorough, the stories were quite engaging, and I particularly enjoyed the twenty minutes recap at the end.

    A book full of eye-openings

    I always love Adam’s insights on human potentials and interpersonal dynamics. With many stories and researches he brings us to understand more about ourselves and encourages us to be original and creative, free and successful.
