    How to Be a Better Mentor, with Ruth Gotian

    How to Be a Better Mentor, with Ruth Gotian

    Ruth Gotian: The Financial Times Guide to Mentoring

    Ruth Gotian is the Chief Learning Officer and Associate Professor of Education in Anaesthesiology at Weill Cornell Medicine. She has been hailed by Nature and The Wall Street Journal as an expert in mentorship and leader­ship development. Thinkers50 has ranked her the #1 emerging management thinker in the world and she's a top LinkedIn voice in mentoring. Ruth is the author of The Success Factor and now along with Andy Lopata, The Financial Times Guide to Mentoring*.



    We’ve all heard about the benefits of mentoring. In addition to receiving mentoring, great leaders give back by providing it to others. In this episode, Ruth and I discuss what the research shows that the best mentors do well.

    Key Points



    Effective mentors use a combination of skills in coaching, sponsorship, role-modeling, and mentoring to support the situation.

    Informal mentoring tends to be more effective than formal pairings. 61% of mentoring relationships develop organically.

    Open up your network to your mentee. It’s an essential way to support their growth — and yours.

    Park your ego at the door. Instead, allow your mentee to shine. With their permission, amplify their achievements.

    Take the role of “sophisticated barbarian.” Approach mentee situations with knowledge and experience, but with distance and objectivity of their other, daily interactions.

    Document the challenges, accomplishments, and next steps during mentoring. This helps your mentee recognize accomplishments and grow their confidence.

    Create Something Better Than Its Parts, with David Novak

    Create Something Better Than Its Parts, with David Novak

    David Novak: How Leaders Learn

    David Novak is Co-Founder and the retired Chairman and CEO of Yum! Brands, the world’s largest restaurant company. During his tenure as CEO, Yum! Brands became a global powerhouse, growing from $4 billion in market cap to over $32 billion. After retiring in 2016, he became Founder and CEO of David Novak Leadership, dedicated to developing leaders at every stage of life. He is the author of How Leaders Learn: Master the Habits of the World's Most Successful People.



    One element of powerful leadership is bringing different people and ideas together to create something entirely new. In this conversation, David and I discuss how leaders can use pattern thinking to create new value. Plus, we explore why active learning is so critical for successful leadership.

    Key Points



    Pattern thinking is 1+1 = 3. Create something bigger than its parts by pairing things not related to make something new.

    Be curious about the world by being an active learner. Use books, travel, listening, and hobbies to come across insights you wouldn’t normally see.

    Active learners seek out patterns proactively in order to create something new.



    Questions to ask yourself:

    The last time you came up with an especially creative idea or solution, what was your inspiration? What pattern were you applying and where had you discovered it?

    How much time do you spend exploring outside your usual work and life experiences? Where are you getting exposure to different disciplines or industries?

    Think of a challenge you’re facing or a problem you’ve been struggling to solve? Have you looked for patterns or ideas from unusual sources yet? If not, where could you turn next?

    The Way to Handle Q&A, with Matt Abrahams

    The Way to Handle Q&A, with Matt Abrahams

    Matt Abrahams: Think Faster, Talk Smarter

    Matt Abrahams is an educator, author, podcast host, and coach. He is a lecturer in Organizational Behavior at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business and a keynote speaker and communication consultant for Fortune 100 companies. He is the host of the popular podcast Think Fast, Talk Smart and the author of Think Faster, Talk Smarter: How to Speak Successfully When You're Put on the Spot*.



    One of the most common places leaders get put on the spot is when facilitating a question and answer session. In this episode, Matt and I discuss the mindset, preparation, and steps that will help you answer questions with confidence and increase credibility with your audience.

    Key Points



    Many presenters think about a Q&A session like playing dodgeball. It’s more helpful to frame it as dialogue.

    Answering questions well allows you to project authenticity, expand on key points, and resolve objections.

    Use the ADD framework to respond to a question. A: answer the question, D: detail an example, and D: describe the value. If helpful, adjust the order.

    Set boundaries for the kinds of questions you’ll answer and the timeframe for them. The audience expects you to lead the conversation.

    Ask yourself a question if nobody else asks one first. This might start with, “A question I’m commonly asked…”

    End with an exclamation point. Sticking the landing provides you confidence and shows credibility to your audience.

    Becoming More Coach-Like, with Michael Bungay Stanier

    Becoming More Coach-Like, with Michael Bungay Stanier

    Michael Bungay Stanier: The Coaching Habit

    Michael Bungay Stanier is the author of eight books, including The Coaching Habit*, which has sold more than a million copies and is the best-selling book on coaching this century. He is the founder Box of Crayons, a learning and development company that’s trained thousands of people around the world to be more coach-like. His TEDx Talk on Taming Your Advice Monster has been viewed more than a million times.



    One of the most common desires leaders espouse is wanting to get better at helping others grow. One great way to do that is to become more coach-like. In this conversation, Michael and I explore how we can do better at building this skill.

    Key Points



    Care deeply for others while also being disconnected from their outcomes. Give people responsibility for their own freedom.

    Consider asking, “How much risk are you willing to take?” Allow the other party to define the boundaries.

    Bring a difficult observation as a third point. Separate the message from the person and let them decide what’s true.

    Avoid asking “why” questions of others to avoid putting people on the defensive and trying to solve their problems.

    A helpful checkpoint: is this question something that’s helping me or helping the other party?

    Silence is a measure of success. When you ask as question that lands, people need time to answer.

    Your body leads your brain. Notice your physical presence and how it manifests when you’re listening well.

    Make it Easier to Discuss Hard Things, with Jeff Wetzler

    Make it Easier to Discuss Hard Things, with Jeff Wetzler

    Jeff Wetzler: Ask

    Jeff Wetzler is co-CEO of Transcend, a nationally recognized innovation organization, and an expert in learning and human potential. His experience spans 25+ years in business and education, as a management consultant to top corporations, a learning facilitator for leaders, and as Chief Learning Officer at Teach For America.



    He is a member of the Aspen Global Leadership Network and is an Edmund Hillary Fellow. Jeff is the author of Ask: Tap Into the Hidden Wisdom of People Around You for Unexpected Breakthroughs in Leadership and Life*.



    Leaders are not the only people who need to have difficult conversations in the workplace. Yet, leaders set the tone for how much people are willing and able to talk about hard things. In this episode, Jeff and I discuss how leaders can make it easier for those important conversations to happen.

    Key Points



    In one study of managers, most people admitted to remaining silent with their bosses and nearly 75% said colleagues also felt uncomfortable speaking up.

    Meet people on their own turf. Others are more likely to speak up if they are in a setting that’s more comfortable for them.

    Leaders should consider shifting timing and/or medium to one that’s of the preference for the person who doesn’t have power.

    Explain why you’re asking about a topic and your intention for a conversation at the start. Providing context prevents people from having to guess at your agenda.

    Set a mutual agenda for a conversation by asking a question like, “In addition to this, what else should be part of our conversation today?”

    Establish a tone for open communication by radiating resilience. Words like these might help: “If I were in your shoes, I might be feeling frustrated or even resentful. If that’s how you’re feeling, I would understand completely. Please don’t hold back.”
