| February 27 at 12 p.m. EST|| Originals: How Non-Conformists Rule The World|
Presenter: Adam Grant
Drawing on his blockbuster new book, Originals, Adam Grant explores how we can all get better at recognizing and championing new ideas, how to overcome fear and doubt and how to build cultures that welcome diverse perspectives and honest feedback. He reveals why late entrants typically beat first movers, friendly managers end up being the least supportive, devil's advocates often backfire but contrarian opinions are useful even when they're wrong, and the values that help organizations prosper early on are the same ones that thwart their growth later.
