Event Description

Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know
With bold ideas and rigorous evidence, #1 New York Times bestselling author Adam Grant investigates how we can embrace the joy of being wrong, harness the surprising advantages of impostor syndrome, bring nuance to charged conversations, and build schools, workplaces, and communities of lifelong learners. You’ll learn how an international debate champion wins arguments, how a Black musician persuades white supremacists to abandon hate, how a vaccine whisperer convinces concerned parents to immunize their children, and how Adam has coaxed Yankees fans to root for the Red Sox. Think Again reveals that we don’t have to believe everything we think or internalize everything we feel. It’s an invitation to let go of views that are no longer serving us well and prize mental flexibility, humility, and curiosity over foolish consistency. If knowledge is power, knowing what we don’t know is wisdom.

Now more than ever, our communities need leaders who are willing to uncover and unlearn their own biases and blind spots, and then Think Again to discover solutions and opportunities that appeal to a broader audience.
