You may know her as the best-selling author of Multipliers. She’s also written a book that’s become one of CFO Bookshelf’s favorites on the mindset of an A-player. The title is Rookie Smarts, a book I believe is underrated. Liz joined our show to discuss the difference between rookies and veterans in the workplace.
Below are the numerous topics we discussed with Liz on the show:
- The origin of Rookie Smarts started at Oracle when it was a very young company.
- Two mindsets – veterans and rookies.
- Is drive and grit needed for Rookie Smarts?
- A new term we learned – relentless curiosity.
- Liz describes the rubber band exercise and the two people on each end – the leader and the rookie.
- “We love the conquering of the uncomfortable.”
- Do we need to be in rookie mode at all times?
- Coaching advice for Oprah, Jerry Seinfeld, and J.K. Rowling.
- Is there another book inside Liz? We find out.
- Liz’s firm, The Wiseman Group. Don’t forget to look at the quizzes, especially the one on Rookie Smarts. To learn more about her firm’s services, check out their contact page.
