Drive

Alyssa Dickman leads a discussion of Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us by Daniel H. Pink. We talk about how people are motivated and the ways organizational structures can inhibit or support motivation.
In Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us, Daniel H. Pink presented research on effective motivation and the importance of autonomy, mastery, and purpose. Despite the runaway success of the book, corporate management has done a surprisingly poor job of  implementing these ideas.  

We discuss the relationship between creativity and motivation, the difference between intrinsic and extrinsic motivators, how monetizing passion and purpose can backfire, flow, employee engagement, and how to optimize incentives for the goals that matter. We dig into why optimizing for the short term can create long-term challenges and how motivational feedback loops can mislead us.

Listen in if you are interested in designing organizations and build teams that enable motivation, innovation, or creativity.
