Dan Pink on Motivation (TED Tuesday)

Tuesday, December 15th, 2009

ted_logoWelcome to TED Tuesdays on the blog. Each Tuesday, I will post a video from TED with a little commentary from me on why I think it’s worth sharing. I don’t want to compete with TED itself, so I’ll be reaching back several months for these.

This first TED Tuesday features Dan Pink talking about the science of motivation and the surprises about what works and what doesn’t.

When I first saw this presentation, I had to resist the urge to send it to every boss I’ve ever had (save one) with a note saying: “You’re doing it wrong.”

the Results Only Work Environment that Dan describes is exactly what I’ve always felt made the most sense, so it was validating to hear an “expert” say what I’ve been thinking.

Please feel free to leave your own comments about the video below.
