How can we let people be productive on their own terms?
Why should we care about caring in the workplace? This is the question that Chris and Blessing Adesiyan will delve into in this episode. Blessing Adesiyan is the Founder & CEO of Mother Honestly, a complete ecosystem reshaping the future of women and families at home and in the workplace. A chemical engineer by training, Blessing has worked for Microsoft, HP, PepsiCo, Cargill, DuPont, and BASF where she rose to senior leadership delivering value across Europe, Middle East, Africa, North America and Asia. The pandemic has laid bare the disproportionate burdens many women shoulder in caring for children or aging parents and highlighted the vital roles they have long played in the labor force. Indeed has partnered with Mother Honestly to elevate women and families, as the US grapples with nearly 1.5 million mothers yet to return due to the pandemic. How can we fix this?

Still inspired by the sheer amount of talent he saw in prison, he founded ConCreates, a creative agency that crowdsources ideas from incarcerated and formerly-incarcerated men and women.

Why are self worth and productivity not mutually exclusive?
Chris Hyams meets social psychologist Dr. Devon Price, about his life, work and latest book "Laziness Does Not Exist" that examines the “laziness lie”—which falsely tells us we are not working or learning hard enough. Price's research has appeared in Slate, Business Insider, Financial Times, HuffPost, Psychology Today, and on NPR and PBS. Like many Americans, Dr. Devon Price believed that productivity was the best way to measure self-worth. Price was an overachiever from the start, graduating from both college and graduate school early, but that success came at a cost. After Price was diagnosed with a severe case of anemia and heart complications from overexertion, he was forced to examine the darker side of all this productivity. Using in-depth research, Price explains that people today do far more work than nearly any other humans in history yet most of us often still feel we are not doing enough. If you are looking for advice to overcome society’s pressure to do more and understand the psychological underpinnings of the “laziness lie" this episode is not to be missed.
