Are Things Really So Bad?

On What’s Your Work Fit we pose this question: Are Things Really So Bad?

Answering that question and others is our guest, Geoff Woliner.

Geoff is comedian by trade who turned his craft into a company called “Winning Wit” which provides speechwriting and corporate event leadership services.

He’s also the author of The Path to Perfecta and an executive producer and host of his own live show on LinkedIn. As Geoff describes his superpower: I turn contracted, painful energy into joyful, expansive energy.

Our question this week was posed by Annika, a senior member of her leadership team. She says that she entered the workforce years ago during a particularly bad recession.

Out of college, it took her several months to connect with her first job, and many years to pay off her student loans. Things were never easy, and yet she learned to persevere through every inflationary and recessionary cycle, coming through each crisis stronger and more resilient. 

Annika has on her team several late Millennial and Gen Z members who seem unsettled by the stresses in their work and daily lives. And she laments, some of them are carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders.

She wants to help younger teammates reframe their experiences to succeed through the difficult challenges and circumstances that they will face in their careers. But first, Annika asks Geoff: Are Things Really So Bad?

During this information packed episode, we revisit Geoff’s answer to the question “what’s your work fit?’ His personal vision surely will resonate with many career professionals.
