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.

Francesca Gino is a professor at Harvard Business School. She’s also involved with the Negotiation Program at Harvard Law School; the Mind, Brain, Behavior Initiative at Harvard University; and the Behavioral Insight Group at Harvard Kennedy School. Gino recently wrote a bestseller, “Rebel Talent”, which we explore in this episode.
