I just finished reading Daniel Pink's new book, Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us. Dan is the author of A Whole New Mind, and a guy who thinks a lot about how we should structure the 21st century workplace. In Drive, he points to an impressive body of scientific research, suggesting that the traditional "carrot and stick" approach to motivation really doesn't work that well, particularly over the long haul. In fact, though it's counter-intuitive, promising people rewards for accomplishing tasks produces worse results than no rewards at all. He sketches out a proposal for workplace motivation based more on intrinsic motivation. If you have questions or comments for Daniel Pink, about this book, or his work more generally, please add them in the comments below. The interview is at 10:00 EDT, Tuesday, April 6th.
