Creative geniuses do not start by tinkering with what exists today. They do not listen to the demands of customers or bosses or critics. They start with their own revolutionary ideas and pursue them relentlessly.

Emoji World

Emoji World | Corporate Rebels United | Scoop.it
Every age needs an underground culture. So what’s ours?
Peter Vander Auwera's insight:

"There’s still an underground. Today’s underground is analog, not digital. It’s not fix after fix of pure pleasure by the click. It’s not heaven. It’s hell. It’s made of suffering, passion, discomfort, heresy, struggle, the fall, damnation. Not hearts, likes, fans, high scores, and smiley faces.

You know. All the stuff that makes worth living.

Who knows. Maybe I’ll see you there sometime."

101 Changemakers: Rebels and Radicals Who Changed US History

101 Changemakers: Rebels and Radicals Who Changed US History | Corporate Rebels United | Scoop.it
Book – Non-fiction. By Michele Bollinger and Dao Tran. 2012. 215 pages. A collection of 101 brief and accessible profiles of rebels, radicals, and fighters of social justice.

 

The editors of 101 Changemakers hope that their brief profiles of rebels and radicals will “inspire more young changemakers to shape their own history.” Too often, texts present “great individuals” in a way that leaves readers feeling small by comparison. “I could never do that,” is the message students can easily take away. 101 Changemakers focuses on extraordinary individuals, but in the context of the broader movements and events that sparked and nurtured their activism.

The editors feature the famous—like John Brown, Mary Beth Tinker, Rosa Parks, and Cesar Chavez—along with the less celebrated—like Harry Hay Jr., Mary and Carrie Dann, and Constance McMillen. Along with 500 word profiles, written by teachers and activists across the country, each selection includes a timeline of the changemaker’s life, provocative questions, and suggestions for further research.

Written for middle school students, but great for high school students, too.

Corporations Aren't Recruiting Enough Weirdos

Corporations Aren't Recruiting Enough Weirdos | Corporate Rebels United | Scoop.it

We need to expand our definition of diversity to include the weird—a group often maligned and avoided. These are people who appear to us as different, strange, and even offbeat; they just don’t fit in.

There is potency and innovativeness in certain kinds of weirdness that can help businesses thrive.

The key for leaders is to figure out how to support weird people so that they create—not destroy—value for the company. Some of these people have stifled their offbeat creativity out of social fear, camouflaging their true selves because they think it’s not appropriate at work to be as they really are. They leave essential parts of themselves at the office door.
