Emily draws on psychology, philosophy, and literature to research and writes about the human experience. She is the author of the best-selling book, The Power of Meaning: Crafting a Life That Matters.
Research shows that people who value happiness in the way our culture encourages us to do are left feeling empty and unhappy. What brings true happiness and satisfaction is meaning. We all want to know that our lives matter. In this conversation, you will hear Emily share the four pillars of meaning and the small, practical ways you can find meaning in your work no matter what your job description or your boss says.
