The surprising truth about what motivates us

Here is a great visual on Daniel Pink’s talk about the hidden truths behind what really motivates us at home and in the workplace. We enjoyed the graphics. Perfect for busy people like you and me.

  1. Thanks Dennis for sharing this post, and the video, on LinkedIn. Loved it… Really good info 🙂

  2. Hopefully this video motivates more business owners and executives to re-evaluate their company culture if they are indeed a ‘workplace for people’ or ‘workplace for machines and animals’ using people as a substitute production equipment and are hence getting poor results.

    This makes me understand great business leaders such as Tony Hsieh of Zappos even more. There is a chapter about Zappos in Dianne Crampton’s team culture book, ” “TIGERS Among Us: Winning Business Team Cultures And Why They Thrive”.

    It’s great to see how a company in real life builds a company culture that enables the motivators discussed by Daniel Pink (autonomy, contribution, mastery) and the amazing business results and employee satisfaction it generates.
