Today’s guest is Scott Shute, Head of Mindfulness and Compassion Programs at LinkedIn. Teresa McQueen talks with Scott about embracing mental wellness. 

“I think we are seeing an evolution, you can think of mindfulness as a mental exercise, as a corollary to physical exercise” 

-Scott Shute

“There’s this stigma. If I admit to not being perfect, admit to having a bad day; that I am weak, and that is a stigma that we need to get over”

-Scott Shute
