Pursuit of happiness
Does working longer and harder make you more productive? Our society seems to think so. But studies show that an overworked culture can actually negatively impact productivity as well as employee well-being. On this episode, Deloitte chief well-being officer Jen Fisher discusses modern work culture and how it impacts our ability to live a fulfilling life with Brigid Schulte, director of the Better Life Lab at New America.
Training your mind
Are you constantly multi-tasking or thinking about what’s next? Mindfulness is the key to quieting the mind and enhancing focus. And practicing just a few minutes a day can provide benefits, including relaxation, better control of emotions, and greater self-awareness. On this episode, Deloitte chief well-being officer Jen Fisher discusses strategies for strengthening your mind with Laurie Cameron, an author, speaker, and leading voice on mindfulness and meditation.
Technology improves everyday life in so many ways. But do those benefits overshadow the negative impacts that technology use has on how we act, think, and connect with each other? On this episode, Deloitte Well-being leader Jen Fisher discusses how technology use impacts our behavior and our relationships with Adam Alter, best-selling author and associate professor of marketing at New York University’s Stern School of Business.
Technology can make life more convenient, connected, and efficient. But with all that it gives us, could it also be taking something away? How can we use technology to enhance our well-being and not diminish it? On this episode, Deloitte Well-being leader Jen Fisher and colleague Carolyn O’Boyle, national managing director of Talent Strategy and Innovation discuss strategies to maintain a healthy relationship with your technology with Amy Blankson, a leading specialist on mindful living in the digital era.
Life is full of challenges and setbacks. Resilience is what helps us bounce back from them. And just like a muscle in the body, resilience can grow stronger through practice. On this episode, Deloitte Well-being leader Jen Fisher discusses strategies to build resilience, vitality, and a deeper mind-body connection with Emiliya Zhivotovskaya, a leading voice in the world of positive psychology and the science of flourishing.
Mind your mind
Hiding or 'covering' mental illness is not uncommon, especially in the workplace. How can we create a workplace culture that can empower people to take care of their mental health in the same way we encourage them to take care of their physical health? On this episode, Deloitte Well-being leader Jen Fisher and Dr. Christine Moutier, the Chief Medical Officer for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, discuss mental health in the workplace.
Connecting to purpose
Our constantly connected society gives us greater access to what we want when we want it. But it also comes with a price—the stronger our wifi connection, the less connected we become to ourselves and our purpose. On this episode, Deloitte Well-being leader Jen Fisher discusses purpose and intention with Jonathan Fields, award-winning writer and founder of the Good Life Project and colleague Mike Kearney, Deloitte Risk and Financial Advisory partner and host of Resilient podcast series.
When well-being goes wild
When it comes to well-being, we all fall off the tracks every once and a while. And that’s ok because well-being is not a zero-sum game. On this episode, Deloitte Well-being leader Jen Fisher asks Drs. Chris and Kara Mohr—specialists in nutrition and fitness who also happen to be a married couple—to share personal stories on how they manage (and sometimes mismanage) their busy lives with juggling family, work, and their own well-being.
A better bottom line
Well-being is not a trend, it’s a business imperative. On this episode, Deloitte Well-being leader Jen Fisher discusses the business case for investing in well-being through three perspectives. You’ll hear a behavioral science view from Deloitte Insights research manager Dr. Kelly Monahan, gain insights on what a leader thinks from Deloitte’s chief talent officer Mike Preston, and gain some practical tips and advice on how to embed well-being and flexibility into your own team from Deloitte Consulting LLP senior manager Lindsay Sitek.
