The Power of Motivation [VIDEO]

Dan Pink has a concept to disprove: that employees are motivated at work only by extrinsic rewards.

He claims not so. People are not motivated by the traditional method of motivation through rewards and punishment. People are motivated by a feeling within themselves. A feeling that is much greater than outside factors and reactions to our work. Check out this TED Talk to learn more!

Also, this may be a new tradition! We’re loving ‘video Fridays’, and hope you are enjoying them as much we are 🙂
