Adam Grant

Adam Grant has been Wharton's top-rated teacher for four straight years. He has been recognized as one of the world's 25 most influential management thinkers and the world's top 40 business professors under 40.

Adam is the author of two New York Times bestselling books translated into 34 languages. Originals explores how individuals champion new ideas and leaders fight groupthink; it is a #1 national bestseller and one of Amazon's best books of February 2016. Give and Take examines why helping others drives our success, and was named one of the best books of 2013 by Amazon, Apple, the Financial Times, and The Wall Street Journal--as well as one of Oprah's riveting reads and Harvard Business Review's ideas that shaped management.

Adam received a standing ovation for his 2016 TED talk on the surprising habits of original thinkers and was voted the audience's favorite speaker at The Nantucket Project on the success of givers and takers. His speaking and consulting clients include Google, the NFL, Merck, Goldman Sachs, Pixar, Facebook, Johnson & Johnson, the United Nations, the U.S. Army and Navy, and the World Economic Forum, where he has been honored as a Young Global Leader.

As a contributing writer on work and psychology for the New York Times, Adam's op-eds on raising a moral child and a creative child have each been shared over 300,000 times on social media. His research focuses on generosity, motivation and meaningful work, championing new ideas, personality traits like introversion, and leadership, collaboration, culture, and organizational change. His studies have been highlighted in David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell, Drive by Dan Pink, Quiet by Susan Cain, and Thrive by Arianna Huffington.

Adam is a member of the Lean In board, the founder of the Authors@Wharton series, and the co-director of Wharton People Analytics. He has received the Excellence in Teaching award for every class he has taught. He earned his Ph.D. in organizational psychology from the University of Michigan, completing it in less than three years, and his B.A. from Harvard University, magna cum laude with highest honors and Phi Beta Kappa honors. He is a former magician and junior Olympic springboard diver.
