Liz Wiseman

Overview

Liz Wiseman runs a leadership research and development group right in the heart of Silicon Valley. She's written multiple bestsellers about work and leadership, Rookie Smarts being the most recent one, published in 2014.

Rookie Smarts brings a very fresh perspective into the working world, as it argues against experience and for hiring rookies, who seem to not know much – at least at first. Wiseman explains that because rookies are incredible learners and not afraid to make mistakes, they actually have an edge over experienced workers, who might be too set in their ways to find creative solutions for uncommon problems.
