Brigid Schulte: Speech Topics


① Life Hacks for Life Zen: More Innovation, Better Leadership, Superior Results


Today many of us are caught up in a swirl of “Overwhelm,” for example Americans work among the longest hours of any advanced economy. We value busyness as a badge of honor. But, is all that time and attention we’re pouring into our jobs really ensuring the best and most innovative work? Much less a healthy and full life? That overwork culture is leading to burn out, stress, sickness and disengagement. Drawing on her extensive research for her best-selling book and in her role as director of The Better Life Lab at New America, Brigid uses stories and data to show how transforming that outdated work culture, focusing on mission, performance, flexibility and healthy, happy workers, not only leads to better work, but allows time for a better life.
