I did this Udemy course as a suggestion from a work mailing list, as I didn't knew who was Adam Grant before, nor I had any urgency on trying to have better ideas... but was a short one so... why not?
This time I'll leave the contents description to the course webpage, instead just leaving the notes I took while watching it. It was interesting because it breaks some very common legends and misconceptions regarding entrepreneurs, CEOs and the like.
- originality = creativity + change
- originality it is not something you're born with
- question the default
- volume and variety of ideas, not only eureka moments
- break your frame and try to learn other domains
- working in different things
- idea selection is hard
- can't judge your own ideas (too positive, biased). managers neither (too negative, rely too much on intuition). peers are the best judges. seek feedback from peers often.
- past success doesn't guarantees future success
- openly explain downsides of your ideas
- frame ideas to known/familiar concepts
- fit the job to the person
