About this event

Executives are expected to lead businesses to grow and achieve success. This responsibility often comes at a cost in the form of prolonged stress, anxiety and isolation - a combination that our next speaker, Nick Jonsson, calls “Executive Loneliness”. Many leaders are afraid of openly talking about these issues for fear of exposing weaknesses that could be associated with being unsuccessful.

Having gone through this experience himself, Nick is dedicated to raise awareness and eliminate the stigma around “Executive Loneliness”. In our next webinar, he will share with us his personal journey and the insights he learned during his recovery. He will also talk about the 5 pathways that help to overcome these challenges.

Learning how to cope effectively with stress and anxiety can greatly improve our personal and professional lives, don’t miss the opportunity to gain valuable insights from Nick, the author of the book "Executive Loneliness: The 5 Pathways in Overcoming Isolation, Stress, Anxiety & Depression in the Modern Business World”.

About the Book - Executive Loneliness: The 5 Pathways in Overcoming Isolation, Stress, Anxiety & Depression in the Modern Business World

(As Seen In: Successful But Lonely at the Top, THE BUSINESS TIMES Lonely Leaders, THE STRAITS TIMES)

The goal of this book is to answer the question: "How do we overcome executive loneliness?".

That's what this book is about.

Exposing executive loneliness—and bringing to the forefront an honest discussion about:

  • The pressures of being an executive,
  • The fact that executive loneliness is actually quite common, though typically hidden, and
  • The five primary ways an executive can emerge stronger and better from this difficult place.

Based on my own recovery experience, consultations with mental health experts, conversations with other executives who managed to recover from executive loneliness, and relevant research findings and the literature, as I see it, there are five steps for either recovering from, or totally avoiding, executive loneliness.

This book itself details each of these five steps:

  • Taking Stock
  • Asking for Help
  • Getting Healthy
  • Nurturing Healthy Relationships
  • Finding Your Purpose

In the chapters dedicated to each steps, Nick takes you through his own recovery journey, providing you with deeply personal insights and perspective—as well as practical, actionable advice.
