Books@Baker with Francesca Gino
Rebels have a bad reputation. We think of them as troublemakers, outcasts, and contrarians. 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.

In Rebel Talent: Why It Pays to Break the Rules in Work and in Life Professor Francesca Gino argues that the future belongs to the rebel and that theres a rebel in each of us. We live in turbulent times, when competition is fierce, reputations are easily tarnished on social media, and the world is more divided than ever before. In this cutthroat environment, cultivating rebel talent is what allows businesses to evolve and to prosper. And rebellion has an added benefit beyond the workplace: it leads to a more vital, engaged, and fulfilling life.

The talk will include a Q&A with Francesca and copies of her book available for signing.
