The “Science” of Motivation

Posted on August 25, 2009

If your interested in motivation and management, this TED talk is really interesting. Interesting primarily because it says what most of us already know.

What would you prefer? To get paid $80,000 a year in a supportive and fullfilling environment or get paid $100,000 in a dull one where you feel alone?

Brings to mind the IBM Songbook. Keeping employees motivated and esprit de corpse high, while maintaining a balance of order and freedom seems a tough line to walk.
