TED Video – Surprising science of motivation

A very interesting TED video by Dan Pink on motivation of employees.

  • “Rewards by their very nature narrow our focus, concentrate the mind”
  • “monetary incentives don’t work or often do harm”

Asking why there is a discrepency between ‘what science knows and what business does’.
