So many of us are feeling fed up, burned out and unhappy at work: the constant pressure and stress, the unending changes, the politics — people feel as though they can’t give much more, and performance is suffering.

Join bestselling author and University of Pennsylvania scholar Annie McKee in conversation with Harvard Business Review editor Amy Gallo as they discuss what it means to be truly fulfilled and effective at work and provide practical advice for how to get there — no matter what job you have.
