Disruption for disruption's sake isn't a smart strategy when you're seeking ways to accelerate your career and become truly indispensable. In The Bold Ones, you'll discover it's more about being bold than disruptive: being simultaneously confident enough to challenge industries, yet practical enough to recreate them. In this playbook from internationally celebrated disruption strategist Shawn Kanungo, you'll learn where to start, what to do, and how to break through with your ideas. Distilling lessons learned from some of the world's most extraordinary disruptors, The Bold Ones presents eight unconventional pillars to success: Success is a Pitfall; Chipping Toward Your Next Big Move; Paradox of Piracy; Disruption is a Joke; Innovation's Dirty Little Secret; 1 True Fan; How to Engineer a Lucky Break; and Disrupt a Culture, Leave a Legacy.

Through each pillar, Kanungo illustrates smart takeaways with the eye-opening strategies of some the world's greatest disruptors and most unlikely "change agents"-from the first female pharaoh to the rapper Cardi B.

Far from being one-in-a-million David-and-Goliath triumphs, Kanungo puts these individual stories together to create a map, showing you how you can replicate their tactics and emulate their strategies to create your own path forward.
