    58 Podcast Crossover - The Business of Wellness

    The sounds and reality of summer have set in, and many academics are running to the hills to take solace in the few months of reprieve to work on research, rethink their teaching, and more. Here at the Diversity Goes to Work podcast, we’re hard at work on the next season of episodes, which will drop later this fall. In the meantime, on this our final episode of the season, we’re going to share an episode of one of our sister podcast channels here at William & Mary. “Ways to Flourish” from William & Mary’s Health and Wellness Initiative recently had our own Phil Wagner as a guest. The show addresses topics such as mental health and wellness, values of flourishing, and challenges that students, staff and faculty may face. Each episode of Ways to Flourish focuses on a wellness strategy, and this featured episode focuses on wellness as a business. Please enjoy, and we can’t wait to be back with you again this fall.

    57 Nick Jonsson - Executive Loneliness: A Mental Health Conversation

    57 Nick Jonsson - Executive Loneliness: A Mental Health Conversation

    The adage says “It’s lonely at the top.” And in today’s fast-paced world, a conversation around mental health and wellness seems more crucial than ever before - especially in the workplace. But when we peel back the layers of corporate suits and titles, we uncover a less talked about issue, which is executive loneliness. We talk a lot about climbing the corporate ladder, but not as much about the silent struggle many face at the top, where there’s pressure to perform, and that pressure meets the stark reality of isolation. Our guest today, Nick Jonsson, is here to speak to those realities. He’s the author of the best-selling book “Executive Loneliness” and an advocate for mental health and wellness in the C-suite and beyond.
