Arianna Huffington is tapping into the tricks of Super Bowl champ Tom Brady, and some of the most successful tech entrepreneurs on the planet when it comes to building future workplace success.
Huffington, the CEO of Thrive Global and CEO and founder of the Huffington Post, believes she can help us beat burnout and redefine productivity post-pandemic.
In an exclusive interview with UNLEASH’s Marc Coleman, Huffington, who is on TIME‘s ‘Most Influential People’ and Forbes‘ Most Powerful Women lists, offers advice for HR leaders and the C-Suite about building resilience for the future of work.
She says: “We should look at this as an opportunity to come out stronger. Burnout, exhaustion, stress other health conditions were already sky rocketing before the pandemic.
“We need to end the collective delusion that burnout is the price we pay for success.
“Look at Tom Brady and how he uses technology — and he won the Super Bowl at 43. He’s not a magician, it’s all about rigorous habits.
“We have an opportunity now to use the COVID-19 pandemic to refine productivity and as a catalyst to change the way we work and live.
“For me it’s not just about planning for hybrid workplaces but also to look at hybrid skills.”
