The epidemics of stress, worry, anxiety, loneliness and burnout are at an all-time high, exacerbating the issues and impeding our ability to stay resilient and devise strategic solutions. What is the way forward?
Businesses hold the most power and influence in the world today and have the opportunity to create rapid positive change at scale, but how? Our guests, Cory Smith and Brick Thornton of Wisdom Labs, believe that the answer lies in helping people, teams and companies become more wise at work. They and their team believe that the real innovations in the future will be from the inside out, one person and one company culture at a time, and that this more wise way of being will ripple out to the entire company stakeholder networks.
Learn what is driving this team's desire to scale wisdom and how they work with companies like LinkedIn, Salesforce, GoPro, Merck and Ford to help employees become more mindful, emotionally aware, socially connected and resilient.
