The great they can do, how to spot them, work with them, and attract them.
Billie Carn has been studying mavericks – extraordinary individuals that can elevate a whole organisation – for more than a decade, building on research undertaken by the London School of Economics and her own maverick podcast series where she has interviewed a wide range of mavericks from all over the world and found comparable traits.
Mavericks are essential to company culture and innovation but are rarely embraced by the corporate environment that they contribute to. If organisations knew more about the rare breed of mavericks and how to cater for them – more mavericks would find reason to settle in your environment and fertilize the culture to better handle innovation imperatives, new paradigms and an ability to grow your company culture into a personality that will really help you differentiate.
A fresh addition to the Innovation Lab organism, Billie Carn operates from San Francisco – a traditional hatching hotspot for mavericks – but extends her repertoire to the Nordics if you are keen to know more about working with mavericks.
At this webinar you’ll get an introduction to the theory of mavericks and how you can attract and develop them to create unique culture in your organisation. You’ll learn what characterise a maverick and why you should keep mavericks in mind when finding and developing new talents.
