A rebel in her own right, Francesca Gino has spent years studying fellow rule-breakers in multiple organizations, from a high-end boutique in Milan and a Michelin-star restaurant to a famous animation studio. In this episode, we find out more about rebels, their tendency to ask difficult questions and how that can be a force for good, at work and in life.
