How I Work: Summer Series


On today’s show, I speak to organizational psychologist, best-selling author and Wharton’s highest-rated professor, Adam Grant.


His books Give and Take, Originals, and Option B have sold over one million copies and have been translated into 35 languages. Adam has been recognized as one of the world's 10 most influential management thinkers, was named one of Fortune’s 40 under 40, and he also happens to be the host of one of my favourite podcasts, WorkLife which is a TED original podcast.


In this conversation, we cover a whole bunch of topics such as:
How to make email more bearableHow becoming a parent completely changed Adam’s way of workingHow Adam approaches social media usageHow Adam starts every weekWhy meetings kill productivityThe podcasts Adam is listening to and books he is reading

And a whole lot more.


You can sign up to Adam’s e-newsletter Granted (one of my faves!) here: https://www.adamgrant.net

If you are looking for more tips to improve the way you work, I write a short monthly newsletter that contains three cool things that I have discovered that help me work better, which range from interesting research findings through to gadgets I am loving.
