Srikumar S. Rao is a best-selling author, TED speaker, and former professor at many of the world's top business schools, including Columbia, Kellogg, the London Business School, and Berkley. But you might be a little surprised at the subject matter.
Today, Danny and Srikumar talk about the deeper questions of meaning, purpose, and happiness at work, and the conclusions might surprise you.
At 2:00 - Dr. Rao was very successful working on the film, 'Exorcist,' but explains why he ultimately left the industry.
At 4:45 - Srikumar talks about how the most successful people often believe they are not at all successful, and are, in fact, insecure.
At 8:00 - Dr. Rao asks one compelling, but simple question, that completely outlines the difference in motivations between those who are happy, and those who are not.
At 14:30 - Srikumar's work might seem a little out there to some, but he talks about his time teaching in some of the top business schools, and the reactions his students had to his teachings.
At 19:30 - Dr. Rao goes through two steps you can implement within 24 hours, and his own students often see immediate results.
