Prince Harry Tells Firms To 'Give Everyone Time To Focus On Themselves', Claims He Suffered 'Burn Out' and Says 'Bad Stuff' Is 'Lessons From The Universe'

Prince Harry offered his own woke guide to business today as he told
firms they should ‘give everyone time to focus on themselves’ during his
first appearance of the year plugging his employer, mental health startup
BetterUp.

The Duke of Sussex, 38, who was speaking from his $14 million
mansion in California with Meghan Markle, 40, and has a series of endorsement deals with
companies that pay him to represent their brands, spoke on a virtual panel
alongside CEO Alexi Robichaux and the Duchess’ friend, Serena Williams

During the summit, Harry and Serena joked about ‘chatting for hours’ as
they spoke about their close bond, while the tennis star also revealed how
the Duke acts as a life coach for
her.          

The father-of-two, who was showcasing a new shorter haircut at the
event, claimed he had suffered ‘burn out’ and waxed lyrical about the
importance of ‘taking time for inner work’. 

Harry said: “From an employer perspective, you can’t expect your people
to put in the work on themselves when you’re not giving them the time to do
that.”

Later, the Duke spoke about being taught ‘lessons from the universe’,
saying: “Life is about learning, right? If you’re in your 20s, your 30s, your
40s, and even your 50s and you think you’ve got it sorted then bad stuff is
going to happen.

“But when bad things happen I think, ‘There’s a lesson here, I’m being
schooled by the universe, there is something for me to learn.’ Next time it
happens, I’m going to be more resilient and can see a way around it to achieve
the ultimate goal.”

As the session came to a close, Harry went on to reveal how he sees his
BetterUp coach, who acts as a mental health mentor for individuals and
businesses, every week.

Prince Harry spoke of ‘experiencing burnout’ as he made his first appearance of the year at a virtual summit for his employer, mental health startup BetterUp this evening

BetterUp is valued at £3billion and Harry’s role, which he began in
March, includes product strategy, philanthropy, and public advocacy related to
mental health. He is also involved in its commitment to ‘Pledge 1%’ – a
movement that encourages companies to donate 1% of equity, staff time,
product, or profit to their communities. 

While Harry receives a salary from BetterUp, the firm has not disclosed
how much he is paid or if he owns shares or stock options. 

The interview comes months after Harry advised people who feel
‘stuck in jobs that don’t bring them joy’ to quit and said leaving work was
something to be ‘celebrated’, nearly two years after his acrimonious departure
from the Royal Family.  

In the summit, Prince Harry was introduced by BetterUp’s CEO, Alexi, as
being ‘one of the bravest advocates for mental fitness.’

The Duke began by stating how many viewers watching might be considering
when they could fit mental fitness into their day, saying: “I’ll start by the
intro you had there was amazing – what most people watching this will question
is, ‘What about my time? Those are all amazing things, I would love to be able
to do all those things, but I don’t have the time in my day.’

“If you’ve got work or every element of our life…it becomes busier and
busier. Then the attention economy of media and social media…Most people will
sit there and say, ‘I don’t have the time for [inner work]. But you can make
time.’”  

He said: “I experienced burnout and getting to the very end of
everything I had. Any fuel I had in the engine, it was like, boom. That is
when you’re forced to look inside yourself when everything else around you is
seemingly working against you. The only way you can build resilience to your
entire environment is the inner work. Once you know how and why you react in
certain situations, your reaction to them is more in your control.”
