A great law firm owner should be someone relentlessly dedicated to being a positive leader — someone who is accomplished, successful, and of high moral stature. But what exactly does that mean? Can a person be all of those things together?
According to Malcolm Gladwell, author and general observer of humanity and society, we have a somewhat skewed definition of successful leadership and accomplishment that may be keeping our businesses from growing. To dive deeper into the subject and unearth hidden gems of game changing knowledge, Gladwell will be taking the stage as a featured speaker at the Crisp Game Changers Summit in November of 2020.
Who Is Malcolm Gladwell?
Gladwell is a British-Canadian writer and entrepreneur who currently writes for The New Yorker. He concentrates heavily on the social sciences but can write knowledgeably about almost any subject you can imagine. Five of his novels are New York Times Best Sellers, and he recently won The National Magazine Award for “The Pitchman,” a biographical article he wrote about marketing legend Ron Popeil.
Gladwell is the co-founder of Pushkin Industries, a podcast and audio content firm that produces his shows, Revisionist History and Broken Record. He has been put on the TIME 100 Most Influential People List and he is a Top Global Thinker for Foreign Policy.
His writing and his podcasts all incorporate his unique style of storytelling, relating current or historical events and people to happenings within his personal life, making Gladwell’s work very approachable, relatable, and inspiring.

Gladwell’s work often deals with unexpected implications of social science research and ties together concepts of sociology, psychology, and social psychology to reveal ways to become a successful individual and improve society overall. His decades of influential writing have helped popularize such noteworthy concepts as:

- The Broken-Window Theory: Visible signs of crime and decay create an environment that encourages further crime.
- The Talent Myth: Companies tend to disproportionately reward “stars” over other employees and should reward experience above all else.
