Turning Adversity into Advantage: Finding your Competitive Edge

Laura Huang
Associate Professor of Business Administration, Harvard University

October 6, 2022

About the talk

Having an edge is about gaining an advantage, but it goes beyond just advantage. It’s about recognizing that others will have their own perceptions about us, right or wrong. When you recognize the power in those perceptions and flip them in your favor, you create an edge—and your hard work works harder for you.

Join Laura Huang, acclaimed business professor at Harvard University and author of Edge: Turning Adversity into Advantage, as she discusses with Julia Lee Cunningham how to use everything to your advantage, even your perceived flaws and the systemic biases that hold you back. Laura shares how to harness the very stereotypes and qualities that seem like shortcomings and reframe them as assets that work in your favor. And by doing so, you will find and create your own unique edge.
