Stephen Hawking: ahead of his time

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers

Having written best-sellers about the origin of the universe and the meaning of time, astrophysicist Stephen Hawking is arguably one of the world’s most famous scientists.

Yet, he’s never won a Nobel Prize. Why?

Principally because the Swedish Royal Academy demands that an award-winning discovery must be supported by verifiable experimental or observational evidence.

Hawking’s theories about black holes and radiation that emanates from them remain unproven. They’re so far ahead of the field that science is just now beginning to verify that black holes even exist, let alone determine how they behave.

The reality is that truly forward-thinking leaders often don’t win recognition until the rest of the field has caught up with their ideas—frequently well after their lifetimes.
