More Stuff from TED - Dan Pink on Motivation

This talk from Dan Pink (who used to write speeches for Al Gore) is a really thought provoking look at our traditional views of motivation. Perhaps we need to motivate people by making them absolutely driven by what they do rather than providing them with external rewards such as praise, money, promotion?

  1. Superb Stu! The Credit Crunch sums it up, bankers on the biggest incentive scheme in the world and they nearly brought the world to it's knees! Would be interesting to see if this correlates with coaching and performance i.e. athletes who are impowered to take responsibility for their own learning/coaching/performance compared to those who rely on their coach for everything...
