Howard Gardner (Editor)The essays in the book result from a large scale research project, the GoodWorkR Project. The book reflects the information gleaned from in-depth interviews with more than 1,200 people from nine different professions. It reveals how motivation, culture, and professional norms can intersect to produce work that is personally, socially, and economically beneficial. At the heart of the study is the revelation that the key to good work is responsibility-taking ownership for one’s work and its wider impact.
