Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us by Daniel Pink takes common ideas about what motivates people and turns them on their head to reveal that autonomy, a love of learning and creating things are the best motivators. He compares studies that have been done over the last 4 decades to the common practices of businesses the world over to demonstrate that the “carrot-and-stick” approach really doesn’t work.
Some fantastic ideas for motivating yourself, people you work with, students, children to be the best you can be. Watch the video below for more information.
