47.01 Herminia Ibarra - Acting your way to new thinking


August 16, 2019 07:59

00:00 / 11:59

NUGGET CONTEXT Herminia speaks about the criticality of not over-thinking
around transitions and urges us to take actions which gives us new “material”
for us to reflect on and move forward. She specifically urges us to craft
experiments (try new activities and roles), shifting connections (find doors
into new worlds) and making sense to rework our story. GUEST Herminia Ibarra
is the Charles Handy Professor of Organizational Behaviour at London Business
School (LBS). Prior to joining LBS, she served on the INSEAD and Harvard
Business School faculties. An authority on Leadership and Career Development,
Thinkers 50 ranks Ibarra among the top management thinkers in the world. She
is the author of the best selling, Act Like a Leader, Think Like a Leader and
Working Identity: Unconventional Strategies for Reinventing your Career. She
writes for HBR and business publications such as Financial Times, Wall Street
Journal and New York Times.  In our conversation, we unpack the nuance behind
Herminia’s belief “Adults are more likely to act their way into a new way of
thinking than think their way into a new way of acting”. We talk about how
leaders in transition could experiment with different pathways and think about
a portfolio versus a full-time role. We also get to the bottom of the catch-22
that a several professionals encounter especially in identity consuming time
greedy careers such as Management Consulting, Investment Banking, Private
Equity, Law and related professions. We also speak about avoiding the risk of
foreclosure while evaluating options and discuss the role of the near and dear
around us in helping us get to a new orbit.  This conversation is likely to be
of value to people who are at cross roads or people who are in successful
careers but feel an increasing dissonance grow inside them. Published in
