Francesca Gino Interview

Be a Rebel with a Cause: Break Rules for Positive Change with Francesca Gino

Are you a rebel?

Or maybe you think of rebels as troublemakers and outcasts and choose instead to follow the rules to get along.

This month, we take a fresh look at rule-breaking. Francesca Gino, a Harvard Business School professor and a behavioral scientist and researcher, shows us why and how to be a rebel.

She is the author of an exhilarating new book called Rebel Talent: Why It Pays to Break the Rules at Work and in Life.

In this interview, you’ll learn:

  • How a small change in your language can open you up to a new world of possibilities
  • Why rebels can be a force for positive change in life
  • The 5 characteristics of rebel talent we all can unlock
  • The approach from improv comedy that will make others listen to your rebel ideas…and so much more!

In the After Interview, Kim Dettmer (above with Francesca’s book) — an artist, author and one of our original Women on Fire members — shares why she sees herself as a rebel.

I can’t wait to hear about the rebel you see in yourself!
