I came across this post of GuyKawasaki about new book – “Mavericks at Work: Why the Most Original Minds in Business Win”. Here is an brief interview with Polly LaBarre who is the co-author of this book:
Mavericks are so different, so edgy, and so independent of spirit that their personal style or message may not appeal to everyone. But thatâ€™s precisely the point: mavericks are defined by the power and originality of their ideas. They stand out from the crowd because they stand for something truly unique. Whatâ€™s more, they take stands-against the status quo, in defiance of the industry elite-and offer compelling alternatives to business as usual.
And also the quote which I like very much:
Question: Do mavericks drive out bozos or do bozos drive out mavericks?
Answer: Both. Bozos tend to drive mavericks out of a company-but mavericks often go on to create companies that drive bozo companies out of business.
The new era of business is coming and now it’s time to choose who’re you: maverick or bozo.
