In our conversation, she shares:

  • What is happening now in the world of well-being at work, not least as US businesses and communities begin emerging from the pandemic. Jen talks about the disconnect between management's degree of expectations and that of the workforce, as well as reflecting on how the current “great resignation” is not just about money, but about people wanting to be treated as human beings
  • Key well-being themes from her book, including how relationships are an essential element to our professional and personal well-being

Born in sight of England’s Canterbury Cathedral, I’ve called the American Midwest home since 2004. Formerly a London lawyer and an Omaha brand consultant, since 2016 I have dedicated 100% of my time and efforts to Squishtalks, a conversation catalyst I started in 2010. Squishtalks has collaborated with numerous community groups and businesses.

Believing in conversation’s power to connect, in 2015 I undertook the community project “a couple of 830 mile long conversations,” adventuring in an RV for four weeks along side roads and among small towns to talk with Nebraskans, discovering the lives, cultures and stories of people I met. Currently I am engaged in “Stories from the Redline” in collaboration with The Union for Contemporary Art’s exhibition exploring the pernicious human impact of redline housing policies.

In addition, I cofounded the creativity agency Gilbert+Chittenden in 2017, collaborating with creativity expert Dan Gilbert using design thinking to help individuals and organizations creatively realize their best futures.

I hope you'll join me in listening to the compelling stories from my fascinating guests on Lives Radio Show & Podcast.
