Has there ever been a better time to decide what our lives should look like? We are emerging from a once-in-a-century cataclysm where our lives were upended, our communities remade and our priorities readjusted. Now as the call to return to “normal” grows more insistent, we get to ask the question: what does “normal” look like? Did the old normal serve me? What do I want my new normal to be? And what will that mean for my career, my community, and my family? These are the fundamental questions to building our lives – and now, rebuilding them. As a therapist and coach, Shoshanna Hecht has been wrestling with these very questions in her practice – and now, on this podcast. With guests from all walks of life including media, culture, politics, tech, business & activism, Shoshanna examines the overlap of our goals, relationships, boundaries and priorities, and how we can navigate them all with self-awareness and intention. What do we want our lives to look like? Welcome to Your New Life Blend.
Daisy Auger-Dominguez is passionate about inclusion on a deep, personal level, drawing on her own experiences being othered and unheard work for change through empathy. As the Chief People Officer of Vice and the author of “Inclusion Revolution: The Essential Guide to Dismantling Racial Inequity in the Workplace” she takes that empathy to work every day – and wow is her work cut out for her in this COVID/post-COVID/we-are-so-not-post-COVID era.
Working through the evolving needs of a workforce and the evolving requirements (demands?) of employers and employees – against the backdrop of volatile market conditions – presents new challenges for HR professionals.
In this episode of “Your New Life Blend,” host Shoshanna Hecht speaks to Daisy about the challenges of making sure all voices are heard, fostering a sense of belonging, and navigating this new era with empathy for others… along with the challenge of prioritizing her own well-being.
