Connected Well-being - Connectivity & Collaboration Community

The U.S. Surgeon General has identified workplace mental health and well-being as a critical priority for public health, highlighting the importance of connection and community. Rob Cross, founder and Chief Research Scientist at Connected Commons, and co-author Karen Dillon will share insights from their latest book, The Microstress Effect: How Little Things Pile Up and Create Big Problems—and What to Do about It. Microstresses are the hidden epidemic of small moments of social anxiety that infiltrate our work and personal lives. While we can’t eradicate all of them, we can take measures to reduce their negative effects on our well-being and performance by counterbalancing them with healthy relationships and habits.

Throughout 2023, the Connectivity & Collaboration Community will delve into the five outcomes critical for connected work. In this session, members will learn about the first outcome: connected well-being.

Featuring: Rob Cross and Karen Dillon, co-authors of The Microstress Effect: How Little Things Pile Up and Create Big Problems--and What to Do about It


  • How to identify microstresses that impact employee well-being
  • Best practices to counter toxic workplace relationships or unhealthy cultures
