Rebels, often seen as “troublemakers,’ are those colleagues, friends, and family members who complicate seemingly straightforward decisions and create generalized chaos when everyone else is in agreement. But in truth, rebels can also be the individuals who change the world for the better with their unconventional outlooks. Instead of clinging to what is safe and familiar, and falling back on routines and tradition, rebels defy the status quo. They are masters of innovation and reinvention, and they have a lot to teach us.
Harvard Business School Professor Francesca Gino is an award-winning researcher who focuses on why people make the decisions they do, and how to make those decisions stick – allowing each of us to reach our intended goals and achieve more productive lives. Professor Gino argues that the future belongs to the rebel — and that there’s a rebel in each of us. We live in turbulent times, when competition is fierce, reputations are easily tarnished on social media, and the world is more divided than ever before. In this cutthroat environment, cultivating rebel talent leads to a more vital, engaged, and fulfilling life.
