Honor Your Unusual Suspects

One thing I've noticed during the past 25 year of leading brainstorming sessions for a wide variety of Fortune 500 companies is the weird tendency many organizations have to under-value their "unusual suspects" -- people who don't show up on the "creative thinking radar screen" but have a ton of value to add.

Here's my story about one such moment at AT&T just published in the Huffington Post.
