I found this podcast very interesting. Although I was familiar with the concept of Task Significance, it was very informative to hear a detailed explanation of the concepts from someone who is an expert on the topic. Adam Grant explicates the information within his knowledge-base very well, as he portrays the definition of Task Significance to the listener. The most important points of Task Significance are those within the concept of making employees aware of their impact on society, and other individuals. Specifically, Adam Grant suggests connecting employees to the customers or people who "benefit from their work," ie connecting someone who builds a car directly to someone who is a customer for that particular car company. Task Significance is very important for making employees feel as if they are making a large difference, it increases motivation, which in turn increases productivity.
