Join us for our next Strategy Books live event! 11 May at 1pm EST! Free to attend, on LinkedIn Live!
This time around, I’ll be reviewing “Think Again” by Adam Grant. From the author of “Originals,” it’s a fascinating exploration of what it takes to rethink what already know and believe.
Strategy Books is where you hear about the most relevant books related to strategy. New releases, timeless classics and overlooked gems are all food for fodder. Every two weeks, Strategy Books will be hosting a live event on Linked In. If you love books, care about making a difference, and want a guide to managing your to-be-read pile, you’ll want to tune in.
We often define intelligence as what we know. Whether playing along with Jeopardy, engaging in debate in the boardroom or betting on a fact with our friends over drinks, the ability to recall, recount and know information is prized. We are attracted to ideas that make us feel good, and options and perspectives that conform with our own.
The challenge is, how do we rethink, challenge and unlearn what we believe? What is our willingness to hold our beliefs and perspectives up to the light, question their formation and their implication, and be willing to change them? In particular, how do we let go of ideas that no longer serve us well, and develop new perspectives and insights, even ones that challenge our previously held notions?
If you’re curious about why we think the way we do, and how people change their minds, this is a review you will want to check out.
