Framingham, MA and Dublin, Ireland – April 26, 2021 – As pioneers of the human workplace through award-winning Social Recognition® and Continuous Performance Management solutions, Workhuman® is pleased to invite leading expert on finding motivation and meaning at work and organizational psychologist, Adam Grant, as a keynote speaker at Workuman Live Online 2021. Grant is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of 5 books that have sold millions of copies: Give and Take, Originals, Option B, and Power Moves. This will be Grant’s second time speaking at Workhuman Live.
“As one of the nation’s most influential business and management thinkers, Adam’s insight can help us create a stronger workplace through a culture of learning and exploration,” said Eric Mosley, CEO of Workhuman. “We’re thrilled to have Adam speak again and share his useful tips for thinking more critically, challenging ourselves to rethink our own assumptions and embracing new ideas and perspectives.”
Named one of the world's 10 most influential management thinkers and one of the Fortune's 40 under 40, Grant is a leading expert on promoting generosity, originality and resilience. He has been Wharton's top-rated professor for seven straight years, and as an organizational psychologist, studies how we can find motivation and meaning, and lead more generous and creative lives. Adam’s TED talks on original thinkers and givers and takers have been viewed more than 25 million times. His books have been named among the year’s best by Amazon, Apple, the Financial Times, and the Wall Street Journal and praised by J.J. Abrams, Richard Branson, Bill and Melinda Gates, Malcolm Gladwell, Daniel Kahneman, and Malala Yousafzai. His new book, Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don’t Know, launched in February 2021, examines the critical art of rethinking: learning to question your opinions and open other people’s minds.
