Presentation Zen: Dan Pink: Rethinking the ideology of carrots and sticks: "We don't need sweeter carrots and sharper sticks, Dan says. We need a whole new approach, an approach that puts more stock in intrinsic motivation. Dan identifies three elements that comprise a new way of thinking about management:
Autonomy: The urge to direct our own lives.
Mastery: The desire to get better at something that matters.
Purpose: The yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves."
A cool presentation. "Punished By Rewards" talked about this years ago and hardly anyone learned from that. I have to wonder if people don't want to learn.
