Early life[ edit ] Gladwell was born in FarehamHampshireEngland. His father, Graham Gladwell, was a mathematics professor from KentEngland.
It took 10 years—exactly that long. Instead of writing about high-class fashion, Gladwell opted to write a piece about a man who manufactured T-shirts, saying: Gladwell also served as a contributing editor for Grantlanda sports journalism website founded by former ESPN columnist Bill Simmons.
In a July article in The New Yorker, Gladwell introduced the concept of " The Talent Myth " that companies and organizations, supposedly, incorrectly follow.
He states that the misconception seems to be that management and executives are all too ready to classify employees without ample performance records and thus make hasty decisions. Many companies believe in disproportionately rewarding "stars" over other employees with bonuses and promotions.
However with the quick rise of inexperienced workers with little in-depth performance review, promotions are often incorrectly made, putting employees into positions they should not have and keeping other more experienced employees from rising. He also points out that under this system, narcissistic personality types are more likely to climb the ladder, since they are more likely to take more credit for achievements and take less blame for failure.
Gladwell states that the most successful long-term companies are those who reward experience above all else and require greater time for promotions.

The term " tipping point " comes from the moment in an epidemic when the virus reaches critical mass and begins to spread at a much higher rate. Gladwell's theoretical implementation bears a striking resemblance to the " stop-and-frisk " policies of the NYPD.
He went on to say that he was "so enamored by the metaphorical simplicity of that idea that I overstated its importance". The book explains how the human unconscious interprets events or cues and how past experiences can lead people to make informed decisions very rapidly, using examples like the Getty kouros and psychologist John Gottman 's research on the likelihood of divorce in married couples.
Gladwell's hair was the inspiration for Blink. He stated that once he allowed his hair to get longer, he started getting speeding tickets all the time, an oddity considering that he had never gotten one before, and that he started getting pulled out of airport security lines for special attention.
The Tipping Point sold more than two million copies in the United States. Blink sold equally well. Outliers book Gladwell's third book, Outliers, published inexamines how a person's environment, in conjunction with personal drive and motivation, affects his or her possibility and opportunity for success.
