Needy 140: Embracing Slow Productivity with Kate Henry, PhD

How can we untangle ourselves from productivity culture without leaving our big dreams, goals, and interests behind?

In this episode, Dr. Kate Henry joins me to talk about slow productivity, an approach she learned and developed after being diagnosed with a chronic illness at a pivotal moment in her life.

Dr. Kate Henry is a Productivity Coach who specializes in sustainable and well-being oriented productivity. She holds an MFA in creative writing and a PhD in rhetoric and composition. In addition to her work as a productivity coach, Dr. Henry is an independent researcher and author of the book Tend to It: A Holistic Guide to Intentional Productivity.
