How do we measure productivity? Our default metric tends to be activity. How many emails did you send? How many words did you write? How quickly did you respond to that Slack message? Cal Newport, computer science professor at Georgetown and author of “Slow Productivity: The Lost Art of Accomplishment Without Burnout” advocates for a different framework. Rather than thinking about how much activity you have in a day, Cal wants you to consider: how do you work to land at the bigger outcomes and goals? In the second episode of our month-long series about how we make the most of our time, we’re zooming out from hours and days and examining time over the course of weeks. Cal sits down with Jessi to offer strategies for achieving long term productivity, speaking to the importance of quality over quantity, the power of boredom, and the future of technology as it relates to how we spend our time.
How do we make the most of our time? That’s the big question we’re exploring this month here on Hello Monday. Today’s guest believes that thoughtful planning can enable us all to use our days, hours, and minutes well. Laura Vanderkam is an expert on time management, and the author of nine books on the subject, including her most recent title “Tranquility by Tuesday: 9 Ways to Calm the Chaos and Make Time for What Matters.” Laura sits down with Jessi to share her favorite tips and tricks, including logging one’s time, time batching, and picking up a hobby.  Follow Laura Vanderkam on LinkedIn and check out her most recent book here.

Welcome back to the Hello Monday Master Class! We've distilled the essence of hundreds of conversations into five essential rules that will empower you to thrive in an ever-changing professional landscape. Welcome to our final week! This week, we’ll take a look at the role of time - and even more importantly, at the role of long term thinking - in achieving our biggest and sometimes scariest goals. In this episode, we learn from Dorie Clark. Dorie is widely known as an author, a speaker, and a professor. She’s a powerful business thinker, and she’s currently pursuing a totally new dream. Dorie’s writing a musical she hopes will land on Broadway and to do this, she's is putting her own advice into practice. She has set a goal for herself on a ten-year timeline. She’s a little more than halfway through that decade right now, and she has a lot to teach us about how to make big strides on a long time-horizon. There’s no wishful thinking here; instead, Dorie teaches us how to make big swings seem like practical and achievable ambitions. For this week’s exercise, we’re leaning into our biggest and most ambitious dreams. What’s something you want to achieve that seems worth ten years of your attention and hard work? You’ll know you’re on the right track if you feel vaguely terrified. When you’ve got it, head over to our free Hello Monday group on LinkedIn and share that big goal on our week five post. For a little help in finding your week five goal, here is a link to our Dream Job exercise. Dorie has appeared on Hello Monday a few times - you can check out her previous episodes here and here.

Growing up, most of us are taught that if we work hard, we’ll make it to the top. In reality, it’s a bit more complicated than that. Journalist Samhita Mukhopadhyay is the author of “The Myth of Making It: A Workplace Reckoning.” She sits down with Jessi to discuss the collapse of her belief that work is a meritocracy. Samhita walks us through this realization after landing her dream job as executive editor of Teen Vogue and realizing it wasn’t all she’d thought it would be. In this episode, she shares her vision for a more equitable workplace. We want to bring you more of what you love. Take the Hello Monday listener survey and help shape the show!

Welcome back to the Hello Monday Master Class! We've distilled the essence of hundreds of conversations into five essential rules that will empower you to thrive in an ever-changing professional landscape. It's week four, and we are focused on something that is truly critical to success: getting creative. In this episode, we learn from creativity strategist and author Natalie Nixon, and celebrated actress Laura Linney. Our culture is productivity heavy, but just tasking through a to-do list doesn’t move culture or solve problems. We need creativity for that. So today, we'll talk about how to leverage creativity in what Natalie calls a “VUCA” environment - volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous. Laura shares her willingness to let the process of making and doing feel deeply uncomfortable - to invest in the process itself rather than obsessing over a desired outcome. And Natalie introduces her key to creativity - a framework of three “i”s. For this week’s exercise, we’re leaning into inquiry! Head over to our free Hello Monday group on LinkedIn and share one of the best questions you’ve ever been asked. Then, check out some of the other contributions and start talking with other master class listeners. You can join the Hello Monday Group by clicking here. Want more on Natalie’s methodology of toggling between wonder and rigor? Listen to Natalie’s full episode of Hello Monday here and follow her on LinkedIn. We are huge fans of Laura Linney’s, and appreciate her framework for withstanding the mushy middle of creative processes. This conversation with Laura even got us nominated for a Webby back in 2020!

Welcome back to the Hello Monday Master Class! We've distilled the essence of hundreds of conversations into five essential rules that will empower you to thrive in an ever-changing professional landscape.It's week three, and our attention is, at least in part, on others: This week, we are talking about making connections and negotiating the give and take of our relationships. Transactional social connections suck - so let's not make them!  Instead, in this third episode of the Hello Monday Master Class, we reach back into the archives to study with organizational psychologist and bestselling author Adam Grant, and Reid Hoffman, the founder of LinkedIn.We'll talk about the difference between "successful" and "failed" givers and how to mitigate risk, why batching your acts of kindness and playing to your strengths can help you have a bigger impact, and how to lean into connective opportunities without wearing yourself down. When you're done with the episode, set a boundary and share your offer of help in our free Hello Monday Group on LinkedIn. Join the Hello Monday Group by clicking here.

How do you start your work day? A lot of us clock in and immediately start going through a to-do list, breaking up our day into tasks. Instead of thinking about what you have to do, what if you considered what you can learn? Our guest today wants you to shift your mindset when it comes to work. Erika Ayers Badan, CEO of Food52 and author of “Nobody Cares About Your Career” knows that work is the only place we get paid to learn. While she might not care about your career, she definitely cares about you, and your experience at work. She sits down with Senior Producer Sarah Storm to share her strategies for getting unstuck, embracing failure, and knowing when it’s time to move on from a position, plus why she abhors quiet quitting.  Follow Erika Ayers Badan on LinkedIn and check out her book here.

Welcome back to the Hello Monday Master Class! We've distilled the essence of hundreds of conversations into five essential rules that will empower you to thrive in an ever-changing professional landscape. It's week two, and our lesson is simple, but not at all easy: We're talking about trusting ourselves. From the moment we’re born, the outside world will infuse doubt within us, no matter who we are or what we want to achieve. Many of us will spend a lot of time worrying way too much about what other people think—and we’ll be so busy doing that, that we won’t realize that everyone else is also doing it. Perhaps counterintuitively, once we learn that most people feel a similar way, we can just begin to let go of the angst altogether. In this second episode of the Hello Monday Master Class, we reach back into the archives to learn from actress, producer, and podcaster Anna Faris (Mom, The House Bunny, Anna Faris is Unqualified) and bestselling author, speaker, and coach Luvvie Ajayi Jones (Professional Troublemaker: The Fear-Fighter Manual; Rising Troublemaker: A Fear-Fighter Manual for Teens; and I’m Judging You: The Do-Better Manual). We'll talk about the confidence-inducing power of sharing our best ideas over and over again, and how to navigate the pitfalls of likability.

What makes a good leader? Having coached CEOs at various tech companies including Dropbox and Twitter, Kim Scott thought she had a foolproof strategy. It’s one she outlined in her 2017 book, “Radical Candor: Be a Kick-Ass Boss Without Losing Your Humanity.” As the title suggests, honesty lies at the heart of Kim’s approach. But what happens when bias and prejudice don’t allow you to be direct? This is a question that followed Kim for years after the publication of her first book, leading her to write another, called “Radical Respect: How to Work Together Better.” Kim sits down with Jessi to discuss how we can build better relationships and stand up when we see injustice in the workplace.  Follow Kim Scott on LinkedIn and check out her books here. Follow Jessi Hempel on LinkedIn and order her debut memoir, now in paperback. To listen to the conversation about Danya Ruttenberg's “On Repentance and Repair” that Kim and Jessi mention, click here.

Jeff Wetzler is the author of “Ask: Tap Into the Hidden Wisdom of People Around You for Unexpected Breakthroughs In Leadership and Life.” He has dedicated his career to learning as the co-founder of the education non-profit, Transcend.

We all have sets of routines that we like to follow, whether it’s common like brushing your teeth twice a day, or unique to our interests like working out the same way each week. Today’s guest believes we can set even stronger routines by shifting from a “habitual” mindset to a “ritual” mindset. Michael Norton is the author of “The Ritual Effect: From Habit to Ritual, Harness the Surprising Power of Everyday Actions.” He sits down with Jessi to explain how rituals deepen our emotional ties to tasks and make them more meaningful to complete.

Like most -isms in our world, ageism can be pervasive in the workplace. Older employees might be passed over for new opportunities, expected to fall behind on technology, and generally underestimated just because of their age.

Kerry Hannon is the author of “In Control at 50+: How to Succeed in The New World of Work.” She sits down with Jessi to discuss how we can set ourselves up for success and new opportunities well into our 50s and 60s.

When we think of a growth mindset, we often consider how we as individuals hone our skills.

It’s been just under two years since we started incorporating AI into our lives and workplaces, but already the field has changed so much. While the landscape is still fresh, a few experts have emerged to guide us, including Wharton professor Ethan Mollick. Ethan’s new book "Co-Intelligence: Living and Working with AI" encourages us to treat AI less like a tool and more like a collaborator. He sits down with Jessi to discuss the most effective ways to interact with AI and how to utilize it without losing our human identity.
