We Don't Have to Fight Loneliness Alone
The group listened to an episode from the "WorkLIfe with Adam Grant" podcast, titled We Don't Have to Fight Loneliness Alone, followed by a brief discussion. The episode also features Michigan Ross Professor Emerita Jane Dutton.
"Many workplaces have become increasingly lonely, even before the coronavirus pandemic made more of us literally remote. It's not just an unpleasant feeling -- loneliness can hurt our health and our job performance. Find out why it's time for happy hours to finally die -- and how it might take less than a minute to start building real connections."
