Today’s guest is a repeat visitor to the show whose last episode proved to be one of our most popular. Dan Ariely is the James B. Duke professor of psychology and behavioral economics at Duke University, and his work has long influenced the field of persuasion. Also the New York Times bestselling author of Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions and Payoff: The Hidden Logic That Shapes Our Motivations, Dan has convinced his readers—and listeners of his 2012 TED Talk—to look beyond logic when trying to communicate and persuade.

In this episode, Dan shares surprising truths about motivation and trust in work and society. Listen in to learn the most powerful ways to motivate people, what we should focus on in order to make people feel their work is meaningful, and more.
