Seth Godin: Why Employee Productivity Is at a 70-Year Low and What to Do About It | E225
Traditional work methods are no longer effective in the American workforce. Because of the pandemic, the surge in remote work, and economic instability, employees are feeling unmotivated and constrained creatively. To solve this problem, thought leader and best-selling author Seth Godin is on the search for significance. In this episode, Seth is back on YAP to discuss key topics from his newest book, The Song of Significance: A Manifesto for Teams and the People Who Lead Them. Seth will share why industrialism is currently leading us on a “race to the bottom,” the reason why humans are not a “resource,” and how to make change happen as a significant team and leader in 2023.
