The youngest professor at Wharton to earn tenure (and, not to mention, the school’s highest-rated teacher), Adam Grant
is an expert on motivation, success, and leadership. His first book, Give and Take
, tackled why helping others is critical to our own achievement; his second, Originals
, focused on rejecting conformity and championing new ideas. His latest, Option B
, co-authored with Sheryl Sandberg, is a powerful, inspiring, and practical book about building resilience and moving forward after life’s inevitable setbacks.
His insights about the world of work have caused organizations like Google, the NFL, Pixar, and the U.S. Army to seek him out as a consultant. A former magician and Junior Olympic diver, Grant also writes op-eds for the New York Times
