Lunch & Learn: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us

We will be watching and discussing concepts presented in a short Ted talk, based off of the New York Times bestseller, Drive. Most of us believe that the best way to motivate ourselves and others is with external rewards like money. That’s a mistake, says Daniel H. Pink. The secret to performance and satisfaction – at work, at school, and at home – is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world. Drawing on four decades of scientific research on human motivation, Pink exposes the mismatch between what science knows and what business does – and how that affects every aspect of life.
