Christine Porath on Mastering Community: The Surprising Ways Coming Together Moves Us from Surviving to Thriving
Despite our deep desire to feel a sense of belonging, many of us feel isolated. The rise of technology and modern workplace practices have led people to be even more disconnected, even as we remain constantly contactable.
In this episode, Dustin talks with Christine Porath about her latest book, _Mastering Community: The Surprising Ways Coming Together Moves Us from Surviving to Thriving._
Christine's research shows, “as our human interactions have decreased, so too have our happiness levels. This is sparking a crisis in mental health that will have repercussions for years, leaving people lonelier and organizations less productive and profitable, too.” Leaders, organizations, and managers of all stripes may recognize how to implement the cure: community and civility.
Christine and I talk about the six characteristics of companies and leaders that best build community, how to unleash your people and embrace radical candor. We share a few great book recommendations, some wonderful case studies, examples and stories from Cisco, Marriott, The Motley Fool and even the world of improv comedy at Second City.
