Dr. Alan Gregerman, an adjunct faculty member at the Georgetown University Center for Continuing and Professional Education (CCPE), has published a new book that explores how innovation and collaboration can occur with complete strangers.
The Necessity of Strangers: The Intriguing Truth About Insight, Innovation, and Success is billed as a “counterintuitive approach to fostering greater innovation, collaboration, and engagement,” according to publisher Jossey-Bass.
“I wrote this book because I believe that people we don’t know, especially people who are very different than us, hold the key to reaching our full potential,” said Gregerman in a recent book trailer.
His new book explores how strangers—described as those who think different and challenge our opinions—help us to innovate and achieve genuine collaboration.
Dr. Gregerman presents principles for developing a “stranger-centric” mindset, including practical guidance to leverage new partnerships in business and leadership.
The Georgetown University Center for Continuing & Professional Education will host a book-signing event with Dr. Gregerman on February 19, 2014 at 5:30pm. Learn more about the event. >>
