We recently talked with Adam Grant about his new book, "Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World." In the first part of our conversation below, we discuss procrastination, combating groupthink, and why you should start hiring for cultural contribution as opposed to cultural fit.

We discuss these topics and more in part two of our interview with Adam Grant.
