Lastly, give How’s work? With Esther Perel a listen if you want to be taken on an emotional journey. Host Esther Perel is a psychotherapist and relationship counsellor conducts therapy sessions with co-workers, co-founders, and colleagues. Perel’s philosophy is that work relationships affect our life just as much as personal ones do, yet when it comes to toxic relationships in the office, people usually try to live with it in instead of fixing it. Esther’s goal is to use the podcast to change this attitude.
