Malcolm Gladwell on The Tortoise & The Hare— GLS21 Faculty Spotlight
We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Malcolm Gladwell to The Global Leadership Summit stage in 2021. Recognized as one of the 100 most influential people by TIME magazine and one of the Foreign Policy’s top global thinkers, Gladwell is a world-renowned, five-time best-selling author and sought-after thought leader delivering expertise and practical application on management, innovation, history and leadership.
There is much to learn from Malcolm Gladwell, especially when it comes to his expertise around the topic of leadership. As you anticipate learning from Malcolm at The Global Leadership Summit this August, enjoy a preview of his masterful storytelling and insight in one of our favorite podcast episodes from Malcolm’s widely popular podcast, Revisionist History.
In this episode, The Tortoise & The Hare, Malcolm draws you in, takes you on a journey to re-look at people’s obsession with speed as a measure of intelligence or aptitude. Looking particularly at the LSAT and exams in law school, Malcolm examines this obsession, its wide-ranging (and often contradictory) ramifications and some ideas of how to change it. So much of the LSAT—the hurdle to get into the best law schools—is about speed: how fast you can complete the answers. Yet, the requirement for being a good lawyer has little—if anything—to do with speed. It’s about being meticulous and paying attention to detail.
