Organizational Psychologist Amantha Imber Linked Her Self Worth to Achievements
She and I share a belief… “Work doesn’t have to suck!” As it says on the front page of her website.
She’s the host of a podcast: “How I Work.”
In today's episode, Amantha tells her “favorite mistake” story about tying her achievements to self worth. How did she discover that pattern? What did she learn and what did she do about it?
We talk about that story and other topics including:
- Positive framing (start doing) of habit change vs. negative (stop doing)?
- I first learned of you because of a piece you wrote on LinkedIn that I really enjoyed… it was titled: Your “Failure Resume”
- Why did you frame that as an experiment?
- Amantha's failure resume
- Experiments — others coming along with you — how many?
- “My Year of Better”
- “My natural inclination was to hide my failures.” Why was that?
- As a child, you said: “But in addition to being competitive, I was also a perfectionist.” Why is that combination of perfectionism and competitiveness a problem?
- Tell us about your firm Inventium
- Like Samantha, Without the S — name of an album you released?
