 how to: Encourage Originality in your Organisation (Change in Your Life)

How can we originate new ideas? Adam Grant, the youngest Professor at The Wharton School, will show us how to improve the businesses we work for, our own lives and indeed change the world by championing novel ideas and values that go against the grain.

Using surprising studies and stories spanning business, politics, sports, and entertainment, he will show us how to recognise 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 as a key driver of progress.

Whether you have an original idea that you would like to develop, or wish to encourage a more creative and open atmosphere in your organisation, Adam Grant’s masterclass will inspire you to recognise the benefits of original thinking, and understand how it can be achieved in all facets of your life.
