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

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.
