Social Anxiety and Work – Harvard Business Review

June 01, 2021

The Covid-19 pandemic changed how many of us interact and feel about people. Some of us experienced more social anxiety in the past year – and may be feeling it even now, in the aftermath of the pandemic.

How do we listen to ourselves and know when to address our social anxiety, especially when it comes into play with colleagues? Host Morra Aarons-Mele speaks with Stefan Hofmann, a clinical psychologist at Boston University about social anxiety’s deep roots in natural human behavior – and how we can address it now.
