Author, philosopher and founder of The School of Life Alain de Botton returned to the Future Talent Conference stage to deliver a speech titled 'Emotional Evolution'.
In this speech from the 2017 conference Alain explores our tendency to put on a mask in the workplace (3:35), why it's important to know how (and why) we're hard to work with (8:40), and our duty to help people develop emotionally through work (12:35).
Changeboard's Future Talent podcast features interviews and discussions with senior thought leaders, to gain their perspectives on the changing world of work. You can buy tickets for the 2018 Future Talent Conference (featuring Sir Lenny Henry, Alastair Campbell and Margaret Heffernan) here.
