Shownotes

My latest guest on the Learn to Grow Podcast is Dr. Ruth Gotian who is the Chief Learning Officer at Weill Cornell Medicine and Assistant professor of education anesthesiology, former assistant dean of mentoring and executive director of the mentoring academy at Weill Cornell. Ruth is a frequent contributor to Forbes and Psychology today.

Ruth interviews Nobel laureates, professional athletes, and other elite high achievers, and tries to understand what they do differently that allows them to achieve at such a high level.

She has taken the wisdom from that conversation and distilled it into book titled: The Success Factor: Developing the Mindset and Skillset for Peak Business Performance.

Ruth shares some of that wisdom in this conversation and we dive into some practical suggestions for how to be a more efficient and effective learner here, things you can take away and apply right now as you learn and grow personally and professionally!

We discuss how elite high achievers define success, practical frameworks for learning absolutely anything, and why L&D functions are becoming increasingly like mentors among many other things.

In this episode we discuss:

  • How elite high achievers define success
  • A practical framework for how to learn anything
  • How to take an incremental approach to big tasks
  • The importance of discovering your passions as a way to grow
  • Intrinsic motivation as the driver of productivity
  • How to leverage your schedule to make the most of your learning style
  • Why adult learning is imperative for career success
  • Why good L&D programs are increasingly like mentors
  • The importance of mentors and how to find them
  • How to practice your power skills
