Rebel Human Resources Podcast

Apr 27 2022 • 38 mins

As the Great Resignation continues unabated—current estimates are that 4.4 million Americans left their jobs in September—there’s growing concern that younger professionals’ embrace of hustle culture is primarily responsible for the high levels of burnout they’re experiencing. Wearing 80-hour work weeks like badges of honor and staying chained to their virtual desks even during their downtime has resulted in increased stress levels, mistakes, and plain old exhaustion. Contrarily, says Uppal, knowing when to lean in and when to let go is the key to unlocking creative inspiration helping you achieving your most ambitious goals. Uppal's book is not about slowing down as an end goal, rather it's about leveraging strategic pauses to make great leaps forward.

Jinny Uppal is no stranger to driving contrary and innovative thinking. Uppal’s 20+ years of experience driving transformational growth by challenging existing norms in business is key to her success working with Fortune 500 telecom, ecommerce, and retail companies. As a business and tech growth strategist, board advisor and thought leader, she continues to pave innovative paths to progress and success.

Most recently, she was Vice President of Strategy at a $12B North American retailer.Uppal grew up in Mumbai and is a graduate of Florida International University and Harvard Business School. She has been a practitioner of Vedic and Buddhist meditation and breathwork since 2008.
