480: Get Noticed Without Selling Out, with Laura Huang

Play

Laura Huang: Edge
Laura Huang is an associate professor at the Harvard Business School. Her research examines interpersonal relationships and implicit bias in entrepreneurship and in the workplace. She is the creator of #FindYourEdge, an initiative dedicated to addressing inequality and disadvantage through personal empowerment.

Her award-winning research has been featured in the Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Forbes — and she was named one of the 40 Best Business School Professors Under the Age of 40 by Poets & Quants. She’s the author of the book Edge: Turning Adversity into Advantage*.

In this conversation, Laura and I discuss the value of constraints, why hard work isn’t enough, and the reason you’re not selling out when reclaiming an awareness of yourself. We also explore why it’s essential for you to be able to tell your story.
Key Points

“Be yourself” is sometimes bad advice.
You’re not selling out when you reclaim an awareness of yourself.
Bring value — and also be sure that people KNOW you bring value.
Self awareness can sometimes encumber our ability to guide.
Don’t passively let others write your narrative — write your own narrative and guide other’s view of you. Let your past make you better, not bitter.

Arlan shares her hard won wisdom as a black, gay woman who broke into the boys’ club of Silicon Valley, and provides an empowering guide to finding your voice, working your way into any room you want to be in, and achieving your own dreams. Here's Lura Huang in conversation with Arlan Hamilton.

Praise for IT'S ABOUT DAMN TIME:

And turn adversity into advantage. Packed with fascinating stories and counterintuitive principles, Edge is a must read for anyone seeking to stand out from the crowd.”

Adversity into AdvantageLaura Huang

----------------------------As I get older, I appreciate the struggles of my past almost as much as the successes, and here’s my question for you: What if your greatest weakness could be flipped and leveraged as your greatest strength? What if your biggest problems could be reframed as your best assets? The world of leaders and heros is filled with people who leveraged their rock-bottom experiences to create abundance and service in the present. Currently, we’re living in very difficult times. The health and economy of the world is suffering from COVID-19, and uncertainty is the norm. While no one knows exactly how this will change the world, it’s very clear that things will change. And if we’re fortunate and diligent, perhaps these adverse times can eventually become an advantage too. Listen & Learn:

  • How to create your own edge in life, often built off the adversity of your past
  • Why EDGE (enrich, delight, guide, effort) can give you a framework for moving forward
  • Why hard work is the last step, not the first - you need to aim first
