Good episode? Give it some love!
Dr. Ruth Gotian, the Chief Learning Officer and Assistant Professor…, shared the story behind her title with us on Saturday, May 15th and Sunday, May 16th, 2021.

Dr. Gotian 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 and is a semi-finalist for the Forbes 50 Over 50 list.

In addition to publishing in academic journals, she is a contributor to Forbes and Psychology Todaywhere she writes about ‘optimizing success’. Her research is about the mindset and skill set of peak performers, including Nobel laureates, astronauts and Olympic champions. Her forthcoming book, The Success Factor, will be out in January.


We talk on the show often about being the only woman in the room. For Ruth, she was the only girl in four generations in her family! This comfortableness around boys led her to become the very first girl on the boys soccer team at 10 years old. A true lesson in determination and living by the questions, why not?
