During the last three episodes of ManagementCast, Alyson Meister has outlined some of the most pertinent topics in mental well-being today, including how to develop a positive stress mindset, what to do when designing a workplace, and why solving the recovery paradox is so important.

This week, Meister is looking forward. Her research in the coming months will provide fresh new insights into the emerging trends in management, from the potential for psychedelics in the workplace, to the effect of “overwhelm” on individuals and the mental construct of “should”. Through several research avenues, she is exploring how people put pressure on themselves throughout their careers, and what they can do to alleviate that.

In her fourth appearance on ManagementCast, Meister gives a preliminary look at her findings, and muses on what comes next in the world of workplace well-being.


Alyson Meister is IMD’s Professor of Leadership and Organizational Behavior. She helps organizations to develop inclusive and resilient leaders, teams, and workplaces. Her research specialties include topics surrounding identity and diversity as well as workplace stress, mental health, and well-being. She was named on the Thinkers50 Radar list in 2021 and subsequently nominated for a Thinkers50 Distinguished Achievement Award.
