Royal Family News: Everyone Needs Therapy
Royal Family news reveals that, according to Vanity Fair, the Duke of Sussex appeared as a special guest at the Masters of Scale Summit in San Francisco Wednesday. The event was intended to, as the organization’s website puts it, “immerse the most forward-thinking, fast-scaling business leaders in an environment designed to cultivate innovation, acceleration, and co-elevation.”
While there, Harry shared how getting therapy after growing up in the royal family changed his life. “I have a coach. I wish I had two,” the prince revealed, according to a tweet from Financial Times correspondent Dave Lee. Kurt Shrader, CEO of Shortcut, shared an image of the duke on stage with author Reid Hoffman and BetterUp’s Alexi Robichaux, captioning the tweet, “Great to hear someone who you think grew up with everything talk about the need for therapy and coaching for everyone.”
Twitter Weighs in on Prince Harry’s Appearance
The vice president and program director of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, Doron Weber, also took to Twitter to share some of Harry’s thoughts quoting him as saying that while growing up as a member of the Royal Family and then spent a decade in the military, “he never heard the words ‘therapy’ or ‘coaching.’ Then the blinkers[sic] came off and his life changed.”
Tjada D’Oyen McKenna, CEO of Mercy Corps quoted the prince in a tweet, writing, “From a boss standpoint, if you see your people as numbers, you will fail. You can’t treat them as numbers, but folks who need a human connection to fire on all cylinders.” She concluded the caption calling the duke’s words “wise.”
Instagram Joins the Fray
Assistant Dean for Health and Design at Thomas Jefferson University in Philidelphia, Pennsylvania, Bon Ku MD. also weighed in, writing that Harry “emphasizes reframing mental health as unlocking human potential instead of just seeing it as mental illness.” BetterUp took to Instagram to laud the appearance of their Chief Impact Officer with images of the Prince and Robichaux sharing the stage.
The post said that Robichaux was there “to discuss why leaders need to focus on their mental fitness to scale their impact.” The post then asked who might be making another surprise appearance as if to cheekily introduce Prince Harry.
