Redefining work—as a workaholic

feat. Claudia Ceke, Head of People and Culture at Tailify

In this episode...

Claudia’s parents were workaholics, so pushing herself to breaking point felt like the norm. She was used to putting long hours in at work, while in her personal life she bounced from one toxic relationship to another.

But when she met her caring new partner, something changed. Anxiety took over. And it would take an explosive breakdown to stop resisting. For the first time, she embraced her feelings—and finally gave herself the space to heal.

You’ll hear how Claudia took ownership of her wellbeing, and why you don’t always need an answer for someone who’s struggling—you just need to make space for them.

About the guest
