Is it possible that people may do their very best work when they are not highly qualified or skilled? Based on two years of research, Liz Wiseman offers keen insights into how thinking like a rookie can reinvigorate your competitive edge in the workplace. She shares the four key traits of successful rookies and what they do to retain their “rookie smarts.”
