Barry Schwartz

Traditional management often assumes that motivating people at work is simply about paying them enough--but Barry Schwartz, the author of Why We Work, believes the real motivation to work comes from finding meaning. Everyone--whether they’re a lawyer or janitor, painter or salesperson--can perform at a higher level by finding meaning in their work. Listen to this episode of the CEB Talent Angle to hear Barry discuss how our conventional wisdom on motivation at work is wrong, and how managers can help their employees connect to the good they do in the world
