To identify an Original...

  • Start at the bottom of the CV. Look for people that have multi-functional backgrounds; breadth is critical for creativity.
  • Look for diversity of role models  — and distribution of their impact. Originals internalize others' perspective and construct new sets of ideas.
  • Uncover roads not taken. Originals are those who demonstrate continuous curiosity, but are willing to move on when there are hardships.
  • Make the candidate a culture detective. Assess how candidates view your company culture.
