A best-selling author and entrepreneur, Polly LaBarre is an inspiring and provocative voice on the big ideas and important questions that will shape the future of organizations, work, and success.

What kinds of organizations would we design if we started with the assumption that every person is fundamentally good, capable, and creative? Polly LaBarre

As co-founder of the Management Lab, LaBarre spent the last decade working to develop a methodology, platform and practical tools for building organizational capability and accelerating change. LaBarre and her colleagues deployed that pioneering approach to collaborative innovation in a range of large-scale experiments in “hacking management” inside leading companies and across a global community of some 35,000 management innovators.

LaBarre is the co-author of the bestselling book Mavericks at Work: Why the Most Original Minds in Business Win, which The Economist named a "Book of the Year" and called "a pivotal work in the tradition of In Search of Excellence and Good to Great." She was a founding member of Fast Company magazine, where she was senior editor for nearly a decade.

A sought-after speaker, moderator, and interviewer, LaBarre has delivered hundreds of keynote addresses around the world and her writing has appeared in a variety of publications, including Fast Company, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, and The Huffington Post. In addition to television appearances on CNBC, PBS’s Nightly Business Report, Good Morning America, and the Today Show, she has also been a business and innovation correspondent for CNN.

Her unique insights on key issues of the day—from the Great Resignation, recruitment and retention to new architectures for contribution and collaboration or working with rebels, misfits, and mavericks—help companies navigate the forces driving massive change in the way organizations and people work.
