Dissatisfaction is a gem hiding in plain sight. Often seen as something to gloss over, Gracie will illuminate how to employ dissatisfaction. This rewards organizations with motivation and ingenuity, and starves resentment and resignation--the robust invasives that stifle innovation and productivity. By understanding how people are wired and moved to learn, leaders can grow their own and others' curiosity and utilize dissatisfaction to achieve greater richness. The result is diamonds: a business that enjoys agility with new pathways of experimentation and learning.
