John Cacioppo | Loneliness & our need for community & social connection at work

Do you want to improve your performance at work? Do you desire less stress in your life? Want a higher probability of getting promoted? This week’s podcast is with distinguished University of Chicago Professor John Cacioppo the author of Loneliness: Human nature and our need for social connection. John has done pioneering research on human nature and the need for social connection. In my opinion, we have never been more connected yet more alone. Many professionals and especially leaders think the best way is to do things on their own. John’s overwhelming evidence proves that the most effective way to achieve a more fulfilling personal and professional life is by being in healthy relationships with others. As the African proverb says “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
