Improving emotional and mental well-being in the workplace with Rahul Kulkarni

In this episode of People at Work, Rahul Kulkarni joins us to talk about leaders' newfound focus on mental wellness.

From pursuing an MBA at MIT, to Vipassana and 10 days of silence in India, then back to a pressure cooker job at McKinsey, Rahul Kulkarni knows a thing or two about dealing with stress and taking care of your mental well-being.

Rahul founded Sukhi to help answer a simple question. How do we reimagine what work-life balance looks like in the modern work era? Sukhi provides scientifically-backed, month-long courses called Journeys that focus on well-being, productivity, and community.

Rahul and I chatted about how the pandemic has brought mental wellness and burnout to the forefront of the conversation and how being a good leader is no longer just about the productivity of your team. Instead it’s about showing up for your employees and showing that you care about them as humans and not just task rabbits. We also discuss how inequity can creep into hybrid work and some steps you can take to make sure fully remote employees are treated the same way as in-office employees.
