1. Are happy people more productive at work?
In this fast-moving, entertaining talk from TEDxBloomington, psychologist Shawn Anchor argues that happiness inspires productivity.
2. What makes us enjoy our work?
Behavioral economist Dan Ariely presents two eye-opening experiments that reveal how we find meaning in our work. (Hint: It’s not about the money.)
3. Where is the best place to do good work?
Entrepreneur and 37signals founder, Jason Fried, has a radical theory about work: that the office isn’t a good place to do it. At TEDxMidwest, he lays out the problems and offers a better alternative.
