How can we become ‘good-ish’ people? For that matter, what is a ‘good-ish’ person? In this episode of Minds Worth Meeting, Whitney Jennings and Justin Louis speak with NYU Stern School of Business professor and social psychologist Dolly Chugh. She explains how being a ‘good-ish’ person allows us to better relate to others, become great leaders and understand a past that hasn’t always been one of beauty and honor.
In this episode:
- Dolly explains what a ‘good-ish’ person is and how to become one.
- We talk about how to be a great boss by becoming more self-aware of how the way we show up to work impacts others.
- We reminisce about View-Master and Pillow Pets and discuss the connections we create by invoking nostalgia.
- Dolly then tells us that it is possible to appreciate nostalgia while taking important lessons from a complicated past.
