Are High Achievers Really Successful

Airing April 11, 2022

Dr. Ruth Gotian is the Chief Learning Officer and Assistant Professor of Education in Anesthesiology and former Assistant Dean of Mentoring. She will join us to discuss the question, are high achievers really successful. Dr. Gotian is also Executive Director of the Mentoring Academy at Weill Cornell Medicine. She has been hailed by the journal Nature and Columbia University as an expert in mentorship and leadership development. In 2021, she was selected as one of 30 people worldwide to be named to the Thinkers50 Radar List, dubbed the Oscars of management thinking. Recently, she won the Thinkers50 Distinguished Achievement – Radar Award given to a “thinker with the potential to change the world of theory and practice” and cemented her place as the #1 emerging management thinker in the world. She is also a semi-finalist for the Forbes 50 Over 50 list. In addition to publishing in academic journals, she is a contributor to Forbes, Psychology Today and Harvard Business Review, where she writes about ‘optimizing success’. Her research is about the mindset and skill set of peak performers, including Nobel Prize winners, astronauts and Olympic champions. Dr. Gotians latest book, The Success Factor is available on Amazon.

In her latest book, Dr. Gotian discusses how high achievers attain that status and others can use some of their methods to attain such a status. However, the questions remains, are high achievers really successful. What is success? How do you measure that success. And what about the rest of us who are not in the loft category of being achievers. Can an average achiever make a difference in the world? These are the questions that we will tackle during this episode of, Life Is A Story We Tell Ourselves.
