Want to improve your organizational culture? Then learn to become an original thinker!
Organizational psychologist Adam Grant breaks down the characteristics of original thinkers that he was surprised by after missing an early opportunity to invest in Warby Parker. Oftentimes, original thinkers who have succeeded seem untouchable or otherworldly, but Grant argues that they are very human.
Original thinkers, he said, are often procrastinators who are full of doubts and fears about their ideas, many of which are just plain bad. In spite of these traits, or perhaps because of them, original thinkers often come up with creative solutions that launch them to the heights of success.
