The workplace has become a place of sociological experimentation. But what are the pros and cons to “flattening” hierarchy or employees giving each other "radically transparent" feedback? Organizational psychologist Adam Grant (and host of TED's WorkLife podcast) explains some of the most cutting-edge workplace behavioral changes, how they reflect other societal changes like the #MeToo movement, and what each of us can do to evolve while GETTING OUR WORK DONE.
Plus, Jen and Manoush consider how working remotely has affected their creative process and caused some hiccups with team coordination.
Season 4 of ZigZag is about examining the current culture of business, figuring out what needs to change, and experimenting with new ways to do it.
