Listen to the latest podcast featuring Nick Jonsson hosted by Peter Bell at The Purpose Made Podcast with the Episode Nick Jonsson: Executive Loneliness – The Unspoken Isolation.
Nick Jonsson is the co-founder and managing director of the Singapore branch of EGN (Executives’ Global Network) and dedicated to raising awareness and eliminating the stigma around the phenomenon of executive loneliness. He has identified that feelings of isolation and depression—personal struggles that he, himself, has had to grapple with and conquer—are much more widespread than we think.
Work cultures often encourage executives to project success and achievement when, in fact, thousands actually suffer in silence and denial of their unspoken isolation. Often dismissed and rarely discussed, Nick brings to the forefront an open, honest and engrossing conversation about:
- His own story of resilience and courage
- The challenges within an epidemic of isolation
- Smiling depression
- The five steps to emerging stronger from a place of despair.
This is very much a story of turning pain into purpose. It’s lonely at the top — but it doesn’t have to be.
