What Gets You Up at 4:30 A.M. to Go Work?

Korn Ferry CEO Gary Burnison says money doesn’t actually rank as the top reason people get excited about their jobs.

Of the leading reasons why people work, money obviously ranks high on the list. But in a talk with students at Howard University, Korn Ferry CEO Gary Burnison, author of the new book Lose the Resume, Land the Job, explains what people crave most is making a difference.

That positive energy, Burnison adds, not only leads to more personal satisfaction, it’s also the secret behind creating winning teams. Based on research and experience at a firm that has placed millions of professionals over several decades, Burnison explains how passion for what you do is the key to unlocking performance.
