Qual é o segredo das pessoas originais? Será que a criatividade é uma qualidade inata ou uma habilidade que pode ser estimulada ou mesmo aprendida? Em seu novo livro, Adam Grant desmistifica muitas das crenças que existem em torno das mentes criativas.Ele recorre a uma série de estudos e histórias reais envolvendo o mundo dos negócios, a política, os esportes e o universo do entretenimento para mostrar como qualquer pessoa pode aprimorar sua criatividade, tornar-se capaz de identificar e defender ideias verdadeiramente originais, combater o conformismo e romper com tradições obsoletas.Você vai conhecer as técnicas bem-sucedidas aplicadas por profissionais que ousaram remar contra a maré e levar seus projetos adiante, como uma funcionária da Apple que desafiou Steve Jobs estando três níveis hierárquicos abaixo dele, uma analista que derrubou a política de sigilo da CIA, um bilionário mago das finanças que demite os funcionários incapazes de criticá-lo e um executivo de TV que impediu que a série Seinfeld fosse cancelada logo no início apesar das pesquisas de opinião desfavoráveis.Adam Grant demonstra como a originalidade pode ser impulsionada, indicando a melhor forma de se expressar sem ser silenciado, como conquistar aliados em ambientes improváveis, escolher o momento certo de agir e lidar com o medo e a insegurança.Além disso, comenta como pais e professores podem estimular a criatividade nas crianças e o que os líderes podem fazer para estabelecer uma cultura que promova a divergência de opiniões."Um dos meus pensadores favoritos, Grant traz uma análise inovadora e perspicaz sobre o mundo." – Malcolm Gladwell"Pesquisas recentes, insights que contrariam o senso comum, escrita cativante, ações claras para serem colocadas em prática... Adam Grant merece sua reputação de mente original." – The Financial Times"Deveria compor a lista de leituras obrigatórias de todas as empresas." – Wired.com

The #1 New York Times bestseller that examines how people can champion new ideas—and how leaders can fight groupthink, from the author of Give and Take and co-author of Option B

“Reading Originals made me feel like I was seated across from Adam Grant at a dinner party, as one of my favorite thinkers thrilled me with his insights and his wonderfully new take on the world.” —Malcolm Gladwell, author of Outliers and The Tipping Point

“Originals is one of the most important and captivating books I have ever read, full of surprising and powerful ideas. It will not only change the way you see the world; it might just change the way you live your life. And it could very well inspire you to change your world.” —Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and author of Lean In

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.
Internationell bästsäljare från en av USA:s mest omtalade forskare. Med fantastiska exempel och unik psykologisk forskning berättar Whartonprofessorn Adam Grant en annorlunda framgångssaga. Att hårt arbete, talang och ett visst mått tur spelar stor roll för hur våra liv utvecklas är knappast någon nyhet. Men här introducerar professor Adam Grant en fjärde och minst lika viktig framgångsfaktor: hur vi väljer att agera i samspelet med andra människor. Ge och ta presenterar en unik syn på jobb, kreativitet, nätverkande och produktivitet. Och krossar föreställningen om att ett par vassa armbågar är ett nödvändigt redskap för att nå toppen. Vi luras ofta att tro att generösa människor människor som ger utan att förvänta sig något tillbaka skulle vara naiva och riskerar att utnyttjas. Tvärtom är det så att ju generösare du är, desto större chans har du att lyckas oavsett område. För att generositet ska kunna förvandlas till framgång så måste vi dock vara medvetna om hur och när vi ger av vår tid och energi. Den här boken ger dig en rad verktyg för hur du ska tänka kring balansen mellan egenintresse och givande.

"Ge och ta är fullmatad med livsförändrande insikter. Lika lysande som smart; detta är mer än bara en bok det är en skinande ny världsbild. Adam Grant är en av de stora samhällsvetarna i vår tid." –Susan Cain, författare till Tyst
"Ge och ta ligger helt rätt i tiden och är väldigt vackert avvägd." –Financial Times
#1 New York Times Best Seller
Named a Best Book of 2017 by Barnes & Noble and Amazon 

From Facebook’s COO and Wharton’s top-rated professor, the #1 New York Times best-selling authors of Lean In and Originals: a powerful, inspiring, and practical book about building resilience and moving forward after life’s inevitable setbacks.
 
After the sudden death of her husband, Sheryl Sandberg felt certain that she and her children would never feel pure joy again. “I was in ‘the void,’” she writes, “a vast emptiness that fills your heart and lungs and restricts your ability to think or even breathe.” Her friend Adam Grant, a psychologist at Wharton, told her there are concrete steps people can take to recover and rebound from life-shattering experiences. We are not born with a fixed amount of resilience. It is a muscle that everyone can build.
Option B combines Sheryl’s personal insights with Adam’s eye-opening research on finding strength in the face of adversity. Beginning with the gut-wrenching moment when she finds her husband, Dave Goldberg, collapsed on a gym floor, Sheryl opens up her heart—and her journal—to describe the acute grief and isolation she felt in the wake of his death. But Option B goes beyond Sheryl’s loss to explore how a broad range of people have overcome hardships including illness, job loss, sexual assault, natural disasters, and the violence of war. Their stories reveal the capacity of the human spirit to persevere . . . and to rediscover joy.
Resilience comes from deep within us and from support outside us. Even after the most devastating events, it is possible to grow by finding deeper meaning and gaining greater appreciation in our lives. Option B illuminates how to help others in crisis, develop compassion for ourselves, raise strong children, and create resilient families, communities, and workplaces. Many of these lessons can be applied to everyday struggles, allowing us to brave whatever lies ahead. Two weeks after losing her husband, Sheryl was preparing for a father-child activity. “I want Dave,” she cried. Her friend replied, “Option A is not available,” and then promised to help her make the most of Option B.
We all live some form of Option B. This book will help us all make the most of it.
