Today our guest is Jennifer Petriglieri, associate professor of organizational behavior at INSEAD. She’s been shortlisted for the Thinkers50 New Thinker and Talent Awards and been named one of the world’s best business school professors under 40 by Poets and Quants.

Jennifer is an expert on how people craft and sustain their personal and professional identities under conditions of high uncertainty such as organizations in crisis or mobile careers, basically when disruption is in play. Which is certainly true in the case of dual-career couples where there is a dance of disruption as by turns each partner upends the other, or in a time like we’re experiencing at this airing with the COVID-19 pandemic. Jennifer discusses some sound principles and frameworks for navigating the transitions that allow us to thrive in relationships and careers.

“Time and time again, when I looked at couples who didn’t work out, it was not because they weren’t supporting each other, it was because they didn’t understand what it was they were supporting.”
