Here’s the episode:

We’re talking about working from home, and in particular, how working from home has caused so many of us to have a collision between our personal and professional lives … a “puncturing” of an illusion of perfection that many of us have created. So we dive deep on the following:

  • What is a private vs. professional persona?

  • How this is potentially helpful and potentially harmful in the workplace?

  • Some tips for how to best navigate between private and professional personas.
