Talent Wants to Be Free!
I'm so thrilled to announce the publication of Orly Lobel's book, Talent Wants to Be Free.
Here's a bit about it:
The book is about how each of us can become more creative, innovative, energized and motivated throughout our work lives. The book looks at how we fight over human capital, knowledge and skill in every industry, profession, and region, looking at the spread of non-competes, trade secrets, patent and copyright pre-invention assignment, human capital antitrust, and the balancing of secrecy & sharing, carrots & sticks, freedom & control to incentivize us in different settings. Through empirical research and insights from economics, psychology, law and business, it argues that more frequently than we have come to believe, everyone, corporations, individuals, industries, and regions benefits when talent is set free. Talent Wants to Be Free is available on on Amazon, B&N, Indie Bound, 800-CEO-READ . You can read advance reviews by Publishers Weekly, Biz Ed Magazine, Dan Ariely (Predictably Irrational), Tal Ben-Shahar (Happier), Martha Minow (Not Only for Myself; Dean, Harvard Law School), Frank Partnoy (Wait), Chris Sprigman (Knockoff Economy), Jason Mazonne (Copyfraud) and others here. You can also taste a fun short article highlighting some ideas from the book here: http://changethis.com/manifesto/show/109.04.Talent and new articles in Businessweek, and Fortune.
Also, Dan Solove did an interview with Orly today on his Linked In Influencer spot.
