PWN Dublin Partner Event: MBAAI - The Microstress Effect

14 September 2023 18:30 Irish Summer Time - 19:45 Irish Summer Time online

The MBA Association of Ireland is delighted to host the third in its series of international speaker events in 2023 with New York Times best-selling author Karen Dillon. This virtual event will take place on Thursday, 14th September at 6.30pm. Limited spaces for PWN Members.

How a million little things are dragging you down, and what to do about it – there is a force in our everyday lives that we aren’t even aware of, and it’s so powerful it threatens to derail otherwise promising careers and lives: microstress. It’s the hidden epidemic of small moments of anxiety that infiltrate both our work and personal lives. In The Microstress Effect: How Little Things Pile Up and Create Big Problems–and What to Do about It, her latest book, co-written with Rob Cross, Karen tells what we can do to fight back.

Former editor of Harvard Business Review, Karen Dillon is the co-author of the three books with Clayton Christensen, including New York Times best-seller, How Will You Measure Your Life?. She also co-wrote the Wall Street Journal business best-seller Competing Against Luck: the Story of Innovation and Customer Choice and The Prosperity Paradox: How Innovation Can Lift Nations Out of Poverty (Thinkers50 finalist, Breakthrough Idea, 2019). Karen is a current member of the faculty of Intermountain Healthcare Leadership Institute.
