BR08-Srikumar Rao-750x340

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 Berkeley. But you might be a little surprised at the subject matter: meaning and happiness in business, meditation, and the push and pull of creativity.

Today, Danny and Srikumar talk about the deeper questions of meaning, purpose, and happiness at work, and the conclusions might surprise you.
