Reflection on 2020 & Hope for the Future of Work: A Raw Conversation with Aaron McEwan, Father & Husband, and Top 100 HR Influencer
We talk with Aaron McEwan as himself (not representing Gartner) in what he has learnt about himself in 2020 - this is an honest reflection of how he responded to working from home when everyone else was also in lockdown. When I was looking for an executive to show vulnerability about how we all struggle with our mental health and stress, Aaron was one of the few courageous leaders that agreed to talk about this important toipic.
Aaron shares how he had to set boundaries as he learnt to adapt to no travel and 100% working from home, and how he distinguishes between work life integration to work life separation. He shares his hope on the opportunities that a new way of working can help us harness the power of being human in the age of COVID and the fourth industrial revolution.
