Virtual Event: Adam Grant

Wednesday, February 3, 7:00 p.m.
In conversation with Katie Couric
Recording available through February 17
 
Organizational psychologist Adam Grant has been Wharton’s top-rated professor for seven years and is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take, as well as the co-author of Option B with Sheryl Sandberg. His new book Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don’t Know examines the critical art of rethinking: learning to question your opinions and open other people’s minds to position you for excellence at work and wisdom in life. 

Intelligence is usually seen as the ability to think and learn, but Grant posits that in a rapidly changing world, the ability to rethink and unlearn might be even more significant. Grant makes it one of his guiding principles to argue like he’s right but listen like he’s wrong.  

Using compelling evidence, Grant investigates how we can embrace the joy of being wrong and bring nuance to charged conversations. Learn how an international debate champion wins arguments, how a Black musician persuades white supremacists to abandon hate, and how Grant himself has coaxed Yankees fans to root for the Red Sox. 

Adam Grant has been recognized as one of the world’s 10 most influential management thinkers and Fortune’s 40 under 40. His speaking and consulting clients include Google, the NBA, and the Gates Foundation. He writes for the New York Times, serves on the Defense Innovation Board at the Pentagon, and has been honored as a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum. His TED talks have garnered more than 25 million views, and his popular podcast WorkLife with Adam Grant has topped the charts. 

“In an increasingly divided world, the lessons in this book are more important than ever.” —Bill and Melinda Gates
