OW SERIES: Day 39 – A new hero is born: the “positive deviant”
Troubled times give birth to individuals with valuable personality profiles: the “positive deviants”. They are known to transgress the rules and push past established norms for the good of all. They contribute enormously to innovation by deviating from existing habits without knowing much about why they were so ineffective.
The period we are going through gives us the opportunity to innovate around our approach to work. But we don’t innovate by doing what we’ve always done. We innovate by seizing this opportunity to put aside standard management processes in favour of valorising positive deviants.
