Chapter 72: Adam Grant frowns on feeble feminism from fearmongering fellows

Each chapter is hosted live and in-person at the guest's preferred location by Neil Pasricha, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Awesome, The Happiness Equation, Two-Minute Mornings, etc. For more info check out: Chapter Description: Picture this: You’re a brand new professor two years into a teaching career at an illustrious university and feedback on you as a professor is … terrible. Sorry! But you’re told you suck. By lots of students. Again and again. How would you process that? Cry? Crawl into a hole somewhere and curl up in the fetal position while sucking your thumb? That’s what I would do! That’s actually what I did do, frankly, in my first job ever at Procter & Gamble. They told me I sucked so I quit and ran away before I got fired. But Adam Grant? No. He leaned into the feedback. He designed new surveys to get richer feedback. He asked other professors if he could take on more teaching classes. He basically triangulated and solved for the question: what makes a good professor? Impressive right? Well, he’s been voted the most popular professor for seven straight years so I’d say so. I had heard this story about Adam before I interviewed him and it made me even more curious about what makes this guy tick. He seemingly does everything. He has a popular podcast with TED called WorkLife which is wonderful if you’re a student of organizational psychology, organizational behavior, or becoming a better leader. Oh, and how about his books? Every time Adam Grant pens a new book it shoots straight to the top of The New York Times bestseller list and sort of just roosts there for months. Give and Take, Originals, Option B (with Sheryl Sandberg), and now Think Again which I’ve loved reading. In Think Again Adam says we must redefine intelligence, not just as the ability to think and learn, but rather embrace rethinking and unlearning. Rejecting the comfort of conviction for the discomfort of doubt allows us to widen our definition of what real intelligence is and widen the aperture of our minds. Adam was good enough to dial me up from Philadelphia where he lives with his wife Allison and his three children. Since I did the interview literally hours after Leslie welcomed our new son into the world, I was a bit brain-jumbled. But we end up having a wonderful chat about parenting and balancing ambition versus contentment, along all the less visible sides of life. We also talk about feminism, humility, work life balance, and of course, Adam’s 3 most formative books. So 3 Bookers! Stuff the earbuds in and fill up the sudsy sink, grab the leash for a long early-morning walk, or come hang out with Adam and me on a late night driveway chat… Are you ready to turn the page to Chapter 72? Let’s go! What You'll Learn: * What are some elements of parenting intentionally? * How can busy couples think about sharing work? * What is Adam’s view on the state of feminism? * What is some low-hanging structural / systemic fruit when it comes to fighting misogyny? * What is The Daughter Effect? * What are some specific tools Adam uses to help practice humility? * What is ‘the curiosity gap’? * What does healthy ambition look like? * What is the meaning of life?

You can send a written comment along with a picture of what you're doing while listening. Email a voicemail message to woodland folk emailed photos: "Listening and drifting. Always good company...#,-)" James Martin emailed: "Hey Marc, not sure if you’re helping to share musicians streaming or not, but there’s a guy up in Seattle who streams music for 2 hours on Saturday evenings (7:30 to 9:30 pst) if anyone is looking for an Irish Music Fix on the weekends. He’s on Facebook under “That Irish Guy”. I can across him randomly and thought I’d share!" Daniel Flowerdew emailed a question: "Hello ?? first I wanted to say I have been listening to your podcast since the early 2000’s. I have always enjoyed it and have found a ton of great music through it! One of which I am trying to find! I wanted to contact you to see if you could help. It was maaaaaaany years ago. I believe it was something like “Wandering Mary” ? It was about a woman that waited by the shore for her William, eventually joined a ship crew, found him cheating on her so she shot him and then became a pirate. Maybe “Dreaded Mary” ? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you for all of the great tunes and humor throughout the years." I don't really have time to help people find songs. But I threw out a few suggestions and eventually figured out he was looking for "Devilish Mary" by The Whiskey Bards. That was in episode #40 from 2007. If there is a song you're looking for, you should definitely check out the Irish & Celtic Music Club on Facebook. It's a great resource for finding more Celtic music. And there are a lot of listeners who are a part of the group.
