Work occupies a big part of our life. In fact, it takes up more than 90,000 hours, about one-third of your entire existence.
So why don't more people enjoy what they do? Maybe they haven't found their purpose, or aren't paid enough, or are too stressed. But some lucky ducks really do like what they do. That's what this podcast is about.
"WorkLife with Adam Grant" is presented by TED, the organization that puts on those talks that everybody watches. The podcast looks at some of the world's most unusual workplaces to discover the keys to better work.
Each episode focuses on one workplace that has done big things, such as an award-winning TV writing team that is propelled by deadlines, and a sports team that put ego aside and reached new heights.
Host Adam Grant is an organizational psychologist, professor, bestselling author and TED speaker. He says the series takes listeners "inside the minds of some fascinating people in some truly unusual workplaces and mix in fresh social science to reveal how we can lead more creative, meaningful and generous lives at work."
