Episode 407 - Languishing less with Corey Keyes The Extraordinary Business Book Club

    • Business

"Do what you can in the circumstances you are given right now. And don't wait for the systems in the world around you to change in order to get some life into your life."
Most of us are only too familiar with 'languishing' - the opposite of flourishing. It was when Adam Grant wrote his famous 2021 New York Times article that we all recognised it as the defining post-pandemic emotion, and it continues to dominate discussions of wellbeing.
Grant's article credited research by Dr. Corey Keyes, a distinguished professor emeritus and a leading voice in the study of mental health and human flourishing. In this week's conversation, Corey explains the personal and professional reasons why he's spent his career advocating for a more proactive approach to fostering mental health — and the profound implications of translating a lifetime of research into a book that can change lives.
This extraordinary conversation will reshape how you think about mental health, not just in business, but in every facet of life.
