Episode Description

Can working parents in America—or anywhere—ever find true leisure time? What are the consequences for our lives of being overwhelmed? In her provocative book, Overwhelmed, Brigid Schulte, a staff writer for The Washington Post, asked important questions: Are our brains, our partners, our culture, and our bosses making it impossible for us to experience anything but "contaminated time?" Is there anything we can do about it? Schulte's research yielded a fascinating picture of modern life, a map of the stresses that have ripped our leisure to shreds, and a look at how to put the pieces back together. Overwhelmed is the story of what she found out about our collective state of being overwhelmed after speaking with neuroscientists, sociologists and hundreds of working parents. Tune in for a conversation with Transformational Leadership Program Director, Sheryl D. Phillips and journalist Brigid Schulte and discover inspiration to help you make shifts that can change your life.

The faculty of the Institute for Transformational Leadership at Georgetown University are multifaceted and diverse with respect to academic training, practical experience, expertise, and research interests. Perhaps the most striking aspect of the faculty is the community they have cultivated and the dialog they have advanced around leadership development and leadership coaching. Most of the original faculty members – those who helped establish Georgetown University’s leadership coaching program in 2000 – still teach and provide direction for leadership coaches and executive leaders, while new perspectives continue to evolve and inform our programs.

At the Institute for Transformational Leadership at Georgetown University, the faculty are exploring new transformative models of leadership, work, and change that can transform individuals, organizations, communities, governments and the global society.
