Conversations on Wellbeing at Work – Discussing Loneliness with Phil McAuliffe of Humans:Connecting

“Loneliness is part of the human condition – all humans experience it at times. Even us who work on loneliness and social connection. ​

We’re not great at talking about loneliness as a society. We don’t know how to feel connected again. This fed our loneliness, too.

Not talking about our innate human need for connection feeds the global loneliness epidemic. We feel the impacts on our physical, mental, emotional and social health and well-being: within ourselves, in our workplaces and communities.   

​It doesn’t need to be this way.

HUMANS:CONNECTING are here to change it.”

During this podcast we discuss the seduction of loneliness and the need to take risk if we are to connect with others. Phil explains that we need to create an environment that is as comfortable as possible for them to be themselves and connect with others.
