Adam Grant on the Business Culture of Lies, Narcissists, and Ego in HBO’s “Succession”
In this episode of the Succession podcast, host Kara Swisher speaks with Adam Grant about what happens when a culture of lies, narcissists, and ego is fueled by a demanding and demeaning boss.
Adam Grant is an organizational psychologist who studies work motivation, job design, and prosocial and proactive behaviors. His research examines the forces that motivate employees to help others, and the implications of these behaviors for success and well-being. Although many employees do work that has a meaningful impact on others, all too often, they lack a vivid understanding of how their efforts make a difference. Grant’s studies demonstrate that employees work harder, smarter, longer, more generously, and more productively when they can see how their work affects others.
