What are we losing as we go remote? We spend a lot of time worrying about the impact on companies, but what is at risk for individuals, couples, families and co-workers when real life connections become viewed as dangerous? Will eros – the feeling of aliveness and vitality – find itself a fatality of Covid-19 alongside mystery, happenstance and physical connection?
Iconic psychotherapist Esther Perel and Scott Galloway explored the long-term meaning of Covid-19 for relationships as we navigate the new normal, prolonged uncertainty, the collapse of boundaries between home and work – and a safety-first mentality that leaves little space for the unknown, surprise and serendipity. DLD founder Steffi Czerny filled in for Scott when the “WiFi gods” turned against him, as he later put it.
New York Times bestselling author Esther Perel is recognized as one of today’s most insightful and original voices on modern relationships. As a psychotherapist, Perel has helmed a therapy practice in New York City for more than 35 years. In parallel, she serves as an organizational consultant for Fortune 500 companies around the world. Fluent in nine languages, Perel’s bestselling books have been translated into nearly 30 languages. Perel is an executive producer and the host of the award-winning podcast Where Should We Begin?. Her new podcast, How’s Work?, focuses on workplace dynamics.
