The surprising habits of original thinkers

Adam Grant is an organizational psychologist and the author of the bestselling book Originals which explores the unconventional ways that innovators and highly creative individuals produce great work. In this Ted Talk he shares some of the key ideas from the book explaining three surprising habits of Originals that help them think and behave differently.

While this Ted Talk is engaging and contains lots of useful information personally we felt that the book outlines Grant’s key concepts far more persuasively and is definitely worth a read. That said as an introduction to some of the key arguments that he makes the video is a good place to start.
