Former award-winning Wall Street equity analyst Whitney Johnson is an expert on disruptive innovation and personal disruption; specifically, a framework which she codifies in the critically acclaimed book Disrupt Yourself: Putting the Power of Disruptive Innovation to Work and expands on in the upcoming book Build an "A" Team: Play To Their Strengths and Lead Them Up the Learning Curve. (2018).
Whitney's research and work in disruptive innovation starts with the understanding that the framework of disruption is at a very high level a framework for managing change - beginning with the individual. She developed her proprietary framework and diagnostics after having cofounded the Disruptive Innovation Fund with Harvard Business School's Clayton Christensen. Whether scaling a business or trying to get your people to be more innovative, Whitney's research helps people to harness, rather than just cope with change and become a person people want to hire and a boss people want to work for.
In addition to her work as a speaker and advisor, Whitney is one of Marshall Goldsmith's original cohort of 25 for the #100 Coaches Project, is a coach for Harvard Business School's Executive Education program, frequent contributor to the Harvard Business Review, is a Linkedin influencer, and hosts the twice-monthly Disrupt Yourself Podcast.
As president and cofounder of Rose Park Advisors’ Disruptive Innovation Fund with Clayton Christensen, Johnson used the theory of disruptive innovation to invest in publicly traded stocks and private early-stage companies. In Disrupt Yourself, she helps you understand how the frameworks of disruptive innovation can apply to your particular path, whether you are:
a self-starter ready to make a disruptive pivot in your business
a high-potential individual charting your career trajectory
a manager looking to instill innovative thinking amongst your team
a leader facing industry changes that make for an uncertain future
We are living in an era of accelerating disruption; no one is immune. Johnson makes the compelling case that managing the S-curve waves of learning and mastery is a requisite skill for the future. If you want to be successful in unexpected ways, follow your own disruptive path. Dare to innovate. Do something astonishing. Disrupt yourself.
