Overall, good insight into what drives people to be successful but take the suggestions and apply them accordingly.
As a headhunter, recruiting a professional away from their current company to a new opportunity has very little to do with the traditional â€œcarrotâ€ aka money. Professionals who are motivated by challenge, autonomy, and purpose are the most desirable.
Pink explains these â€œsecretsâ€ of motivation in the 21st century include autonomy, mastery and purpose.
Yet many business today have yet to recognize this fact and continue to try to motivate their employees with the archaic management method of Carrot and Stick.
In the day and age where skilled talent is difficult to find, recruit and retain â€“ management MUST recognize this motivational and behavioral fact. The book Drive is a must read for every manager and executive who wants the best for their staff and company.
Daniel ties into something that Seth Godin is also talking about recently with the idea that we are moving from the Industrial Generation, to an more Connected Generation. Since the goals and guidelines are changing, they way that people are motivated has to change as well. One of the surprising out-takes is that the research this is based upon is not new, this is not a NEW phenomenon. The genesis of the idea was first published in the 1940's and the resurfaced again in the mid 1990's.
It is in interesting read.
I would recommend this to anyone in a management position as well as any owners of medium to large businesses. Such an interesting read and I hope this is the future of the American workplace.
