Bittersweet: The Secret Keys to Creativity and Connection

At a time of collective loss, profound discord, and personal anxiety, embracing the bittersweetness at the heart of life can bring us together in deep and unexpected ways. While businesses are embracing more and more programs that emphasize well-being and safety, these efforts can inadvertently go astray if they don’t allow people to explore the bitter as well as engage with the sweet aspects of working life. In a guided conversation with University of Michigan’s Jane Dutton, Susan Cain shares how a bittersweet state of mind is the quiet force that helps us transcend our personal and collective pain. Through a mix of research, storytelling, and memoir, Susan will show us the power of a “Bittersweet” approach to work culture that unlocks creativity, con­nection, and authenticity and is part of truly honoring what is human in any kind of human enterprise.
