And on this episode of Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu, he lays out the most fundamental aspects of a good leader. Adam and Tom discuss humility, integrity and the importance of being a giver, not a taker. They also delve deep into the idea of “cognitive entrenchment”, which is a deadly trap that everyone has to deal with, no matter how educated, informed, or driven they are.

SHOW NOTES:

What are the universal principles of leadership? [1:29]

Are you a giver or a taker? [2:42]

Adam explains how to be successful as a giver, and the main traps to avoid [4:31]

If you want to lead, you must keep people’s attention on the message, not on you [6:30]

A leader is like a shepherd, very rarely out in front of the flock [10:03]

Adam describes the skills leaders need to acquire, and the criticism they need to seek [13:12]

Adam explains why he works so hard to avoid getting caught up in being right [17:01]

Teams who have too many superstars don’t win championships [20:53]

The leader of a team is often the person who most exemplifies what the group stands for [24:48]

Adam describes “cognitive entrenchment” where experts get mentally stuck [25:37]

Tom and Adam discuss the need for hyper-specific goals and testable hypotheses [28:47]

Is there a point where the constant need for personal growth actually becomes harmful? [33:33]

Tom talks about being a synthesizer, instead of being the thinker of original thoughts [37:13]

Adam talks about why he doesn’t always follow his intuition [42:04]

QUOTES:

“People will say, look, you have to practice what you preach. I actually think leaders should be doing the reverse, which is to say, “I am only gonna preach what I already practice.” [3:58]

“One of the fundamental mistakes that a lot of leaders make is they develop a style and then they stick to that style. But the whole point of leadership is flexibility and adaptability.”  [11:12]

EPIDEMIC with Dr. Celine Gounder
Episode artwork

Transcript

“We’re not working from home because we want to. Many of us are working from home because we have to. We are all thrust into this social distancing as a result of the pandemic, and in a very short time, we’ve had to adapt to some very unusual circumstances.” - Dr. William Kassler, Chief Medical Officer, IBM

In this episode, Dr. Celine Gounder talks to Adam Grant, a professor at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. They discuss work during a pandemic and which companies are taking considerations to continue to take care of their employees, and which companies aren’t.

Finally, they discuss how companies can improve their work-from-home culture, as well as how their pandemic may change people’s work-life/home-life balance permanently.

Dr. Gounder also speaks with Dr. William Kassler, the Chief Medical Officer for IBM, and Katie McGrath, co-CEO and Chief Strategy Officer at Bad Robot Productions about discuss mental health during a crisis, and how companies can best support their workers’ mental health during this uncertain time.

How to Give without Getting Taken Advantage of with Adam Grant

The Art of Charm
Episode artwork
Read more

It can be difficult to get ahead at work when someone else is always taking credit for what the team does, but what can you do to deal with selfish individuals in a professional manner, how can you be a giver and not get taken advantage of, and how do matchers balance givers and takers?


What to Listen For

  • What are 5 minute favors and how can you use them to build a powerful network?
  • How do you deal with selfish personalities who always try to take credit for the success of the team?
  • What can you do if you’re a giver (versus a taker) and you’re struggling to show your value in the workplace?
  • What are matchers and why are they important to balance givers and takers?
  • What would Adam Grant change about “Give and Take” if he were to rewrite it today?
  • What question should you ask a hiring manager to get an actual understanding of a company’s culture?
  • Are extroverts better leaders than introverts?


While it’s frowned upon to be a taker, it’s also not great for your own well being to be too much of a giver, especially if you’re not great at setting and maintaining boundaries. Being generous is a great thing, but if you’re not taking care of yourself and if you don’t have a strong sense of self-worth, it can be easy to feel like you are getting taken advantage of by people.

Procrastination is associated with laziness by many, but the science shows us otherwise - so if procrastinators aren’t lazy then why do we assume they are, what can you do about your procrastination if you want to change it, and why is now the best time to overcome your procrastination habit?  


What to Listen For

  • What can you do today to overcome your procrastination habits?
  • How do we redesign jobs that now have to operate from a distance?
  • Why is it more challenging to work remotely and what can you do to overcome them so you don’t lose your job?
  • What questions can you ask someone to help them figure out what motivates them so you can help them become a happier and more productive employee?
  • What can we do as leaders to help our coworkers and employees grapple with the loneliness that accompanies working from home for many people?
  • What is one of the most powerful antidotes to loneliness that we can give people any time?
  • What simple exercise can you go through with your employees or coworkers to immediately improve their creativity and productivity?
  • What can you do to immediately win the battle over procrastination while you’re working from home?
  • How can you break down your procrastination into understandable chunks so you can easily overcome them?
  • What does the science say about the ideal workplace environment so you can make your office more conducive to your work?
  • What should we be most concerned about as we come out of this quarantine and will we be able to return to normal?


If you find yourself procrastinating, it’s not necessarily a problem with your work ethic, but can certainly be a problem with your ability to regulate your emotions. When confronted with a task that makes you feel uncomfortable (angry, uncertainty, frustrated, annoyed, anxious, etc), procrastination can kick in to help you avoid feeling those things. So what can you do to mitigate these responses and overcome your procrastination before it costs you an awesome opportunity? Tune in to find out!

Transcript

"I have to say it's really weird to be at Bellevue right now. On the one hand, it feels like a ghost town. Basically, the hospital has cleared out, largely devoting itself to coronavirus patients. It's eerily quiet except for pages overheard every hour or so for patients who are getting worse and need to be transferred to the ICU and put on a ventilator." -Co-host, Dr. Celine Gounder

In this episode, Dr Celine Gounder opens by sharing observations from her day in service at Bellevue Hospital in New York City on Sunday, March 22, 2020.

Co-hosts Dr Gounder and Ron Klain also talk with Adam Grant, one of the world's leading experts on how to motivate people.They discuss how we inspire people to do the right thing, and how we keep them from doing the wrong ones.
