Harvard Professor and ECI Academic Fellow, Dr. Francesca Gino, will share insights from her latest work, Rebel Talent: Why It Pays to Break the Rules at Work and in Life. Consider why some of the most successful among us question "the way things have always been done" and how rebellion brings joy and meaning into our lives and can be an asset to our relationships at and away from work.
Rebels have a bad reputation. We think of them as troublemakers, outcasts, contrarians: those colleagues, friends, and family members who complicate seemingly straightforward decisions, create chaos, and disagree when everyone else is in agreement. But in truth, rebels are also those among us 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 which is critical to success.
However, what is the impact of rebel talent on an organization’s culture, and more specifically, do rebels contribute to a company’s values in a positive manner or work against them? How can an ethics and compliance program embrace the great creativity of rebel talent while maintaining company standards?
