Todd Kashdan, PhD

If companies want to innovate and get fresh ideas, they need to hear from the rebels who challenge conventional wisdom. But TODD KASHDAN says that not any rebellion will do—what really makes a difference is principled dissent, when a rebel speaks up with courage for a greater good. Todd is an award-winning psychology expert, and he shares practical scientific recipes from his book The Art of Insubordination so that you can make principled dissent a vital part of your culture: you’ll learn how to express unpopular—but important—ideas, how to help principled rebels express their contrary opinions, and how to ensure the best ideas win, even if they are unexpected. Todd’s warmth, wit, and proven wisdom—with research seen in the New York TimesFast Company, and The Atlantic—will make us rebels with a cause. We’ve all got a cause. Let’s rebel.
