Soft Skills for Leaders with Lisa Evans

Dec 5, 2022

In this episode, I chat with Amantha Imber, an organisational psychologist and founder of behavioural science consultancy Inventium, who helps people reinvent how they approach their work.

Amantha is the host of the podcast How I Work, which has had over 2.5 million downloads, where she interviews some of the world’s most successful people about their habits, strategies, and rituals. Her latest book is called Time Wise.

  • Flexibility around Working From Home.
  • Deliberately thinking about the tasks you do WFH/office.
  • Next Tuesday Rule when deciding to say yes or no.
  • Amantha's interview process for the podcast How I Work.
  • Daily system of writing.
  • Deep vs shallow work.
  • Time blocking digital or physical.
  • Importance of self-care.
