What if the real key to new thinking and action is strangers? This summary offers the provocative idea that engaging with strangers who are often very different than you is an opportunity, not a threat. Strangers challenge you to look at yourself, the challenges you face, and the world around you with fresh eyes and a sense of new possibilities. Engaging with the right strangers is essential to unlocking your real potential ... To stay competitive, you and your organization need access to more new ideas, insights, and perspectives than ever before. This summary will explain how strangers can help you innovate in ways that matter, build remarkable teams and energize workplaces, and achieve genuine collaboration. It also shows how to develop a more open and stranger-centric mindset that can enable you to develop new markets, build stronger customer relationships, create more worthwhile partnerships, and become a more effective leader."@en ;
