Companies don’t disrupt: people do, according to Whitney Johnson. Recognized as one of the 50 leading business thinkers in the world (Thinkers50), 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 Everyone Has An S-Curve: Driving Engagement by Developing Employees who Disrupt for a Living (Harvard Business Press, 2018).

According to Apple Co-Founder, Steve Wozniak, “Disrupt Yourself reads like a handbook for innovation: it shows the incredible value of recognizing what you are good at and finding unexpected ways to apply those strengths to the marketplace. The dramatic ‘jumps’ that Johnson encourages us to take truly form the basis of creativity and success.”
