How do creative people come up with great ideas?

Organizational psychologist Adam Grant studies "originals": thinkers who dream up new ideas and take action to put them into the world. In this talk, learn three unexpected habits of originals — including embracing failure.

"The greatest originals are the ones who fail the most because they're the ones who try the most," Grant says. "You need a lot of bad ideas in order to get a few good ones."
