It’s important to stay positive, especially in trying times. But what happens when that positivity becomes unhelpful, shaming, and ultimately, toxic? The idea that the best or only way to cope with a negative situation is to put a positive spin on it is toxic to our emotional health.

In this episode guest Dr. Natalie Dattilo, a Clinical Psychologist, and Mental Wellness Expert describes what toxic positivity looks like, and the line between being helpful and crossing over into toxicity.

Connecting socially is an innate human need and one that was practically eliminated during the pandemic. For the past two years, we turned to social media, Zoom calls, and Netflix for our main sources of connection. Now that we’re going back into the office and gathering in larger groups, how can we ease back into being with each other and rebuild social connections? 

Podcast guest, Dr. Natalie Kerr, is a social psychologist and a Professor of Psychology at James Madison University. Dr. Kerr enjoys sharing psychological science to help others improve their lives. Her current research focuses on the social psychology of loneliness, including interventions to help people feel more connected and less lonely. 

In this episode, we discuss why social connection is so important and how we can come back together without extreme awkwardness. Dr. Kerr talks about loneliness and how the solution is counter to the advice of “just put yourself out there”. We discuss how nature can help build social connections and why we don’t reach out to people when they are going through hard times. Finally, Natalie leaves us with a warning about marketing programs to ease loneliness.

The stats point to the likelihood that most of us are in some stage of burnout, and guess who this includes? Managers – you know, the ones leading your employees. Managers navigate the delicate balance between investing in and supporting their team, getting their own work done, and (trying to) understand the priorities from above. How do successful managers balance it all? That’s what this episode is all about.

Podcast guest, Karen Suchsland, is known for fostering collaborative team environments that allow team members to learn, grow professionally and successfully deliver on company objectives while having a healthy dose of fun. 

In this episode, we discuss how leaders can help their employees with overwhelm, and why trust is the most crucial ingredient a leader needs to build. Karen guides leaders on how to navigate the conversation around mental health and offers a script for following up after you’ve suggested specific resources. Finally, she leaves us with ways a leader can better engage their team (and these are ones she’s implemented with her own teams).
