Rethinking DEI with Michèle Lamont

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives have changed rapidly over the years, and often not for the better. Many companies quickly hired DEI professionals and then dissolved these roles just as fast.

In a society that rewards perfectionism, failure can be a hard pill to swallow.

Why quitting works with Julia Keller

In a culture that values perseverance, quitting is often seen as failure. We’re encouraged to stick out jobs, hobbies, and often, people as to not be labeled a “quitter”. So what do we do when something just isn’t going to work for us? Pulitzer prize winning journalist and author Julia Keller is shifting the narrative around walking away with her book “Quitting: A Life Strategy”. She joins us today to talk about the power of quitting and how sometimes, it’s just the thing we need to set us free.

Debating our way to understanding with Bo Seo

Before Jessi sat down with champion debater and disagreement expert Bo Seo, our team would have mostly told you that the goal of a solid relationship or colleagueship is being able to avoid disagreement.

Aurora James on igniting a movement

Three summers ago, a major retailer phoned designer Aurora James, asking for help. At the height of the protests surrounding the murder of George Floyd at the hands of police, this retailer wanted advice on how to meet the moment. Aurora, the creative director and founder of shoe brand Brother Vellies, offered a thought that became a movement: Since Black people are almost 15% of the US population, retailers should commit 15% of their shelf space to Black-owned businesses, and pledge 15% of their budget to purchasing products from those businesses to sell to customers. And with that, the 15% Pledge was born.  Aurora believes that it’s great business to do good for the world, and in this conversation with Jessi Hempel, she shares her journey into fashion, and what she’s learned about how to be a force for positive change today.  Follow Aurora James on LinkedIn.

What Makes a Good Job, part 3, featuring Simone Stolzoff

In the final installment of our Good Jobs series, Jessi meets with journalist Simone Stolzoff, author of the new book, The Good Enough Job: Reclaiming Life From Work. Simone, who goes by Simo, wants to flip the script on good jobs entirely. Instead of putting all our energy into work and shoehorning our life into the margins, he says our work lives should give us plenty of time to look for meaning outside of our jobs.  The conversation between Simo and Jessi explores the decline of community organizations and the increasing reliance on the workplace for meaning and belonging. Simo pushes back on various workplace myths and encourages listeners to critically assess these beliefs and find the intersection between their personal values and market values. The episode concludes with actionable insights on how to reframe work's role in our lives, including creating boundaries to prioritize non-work activities and cultivating sources of identity and meaning outside of the job.

What Makes a Good Job, part 1, featuring Bruce Feiler

Once upon a time, many kids in the American middle class were told the same story: Go to the best college possible. Study hard, then do what you love. That is your (linear) path to a good job, and from there to meaning and success. But that path seems ill-equipped to survive our current reality of burnout, inflation, and layoffs. So what do we do now? The idea that it's time to divorce pay from meaning is going mainstream. More of us are less willing to sacrifice everything to the grind. Instead, we’re redefining the idea of work. So over the next three weeks, Hello Monday is taking a look at what makes a good job today. To kick things off, Jessi sits down with author and researcher Bruce Feiler.

The price women pay to be good with Elise Loehnen

Whether or not we are individually religious, a lot of our lives are governed by our relationships to what the Christian church calls the Seven Deadly Sins - pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, and sloth. As Elise Loehnen explores in her new book, On Our Best Behavior: The Seven Deadly Sins and the Price Women Pay to be Good, that leads us to uphold patriarchy, and sometimes to hurt ourselves and each other. But it doesn’t have to be this way. In a candid conversation driven by curiosity and hope, Elise and Jessi explore what we stand to gain when we re-examine our most complicated feelings.

Sheena Iyengar on how to be creative

Are you a creative person? According to Sheena Iyengar, the answer is YES - everyone is. Sheena’s work is devoted to showing that creativity is not magic. It’s a process, and it can benefit from a solid framework. But Sheena doesn’t turn to brainstorming or design thinking for this. She believes those processes need revising. And so she’s created an alternative framework for innovation. In this conversation with Jessi, she shares that framework and her inspiration for her new book, THINK BIGGER.

Susan Cain on introversion

A few months ago, we spun up a Hello Monday community group on LinkedIn. (You can join it here.) When we asked people to introduce themselves by sharing five things not on their LinkedIn profiles, a LOT of community members - more than half - self-identified as introverts. And that made us want to take a closer look at introversion. Enter Susan Cain, author of the longtime best-seller Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking and the more recent bestseller, Bittersweet: How Sorrow and Longing Make Us Whole. In this conversation, Susan and Jessi talk about why it’s so helpful to know where on the introvert-extrovert spectrum you land, how introverts can make the most of today’s office norms, and touch on the connection we all share when we experience the fragility of life.  Follow Susan Cain on LinkedIn.
