Much like Malcolm Gladwell (author of The Tipping Point and Blink), Dan Pink has a way of helping readers digest scientific research and making that research much more accessible to the layperson. I hope you’ll consider buying it today (at Amazon—a Motivation 3.0 style company) and give copies to your employees, your friends, your kids,and anyone else you really care about. This week I’ll review the book from a leadership perspective and from three different levels: The 1,000-foot, 100-foot and 10-foot levels.
*Drive: The 1,000-foot-level view for leaders considering Motivation 3.0
The whole idea of Drive is that people work best on non-linear, creative 21st Century tasks if they focus on three big areas that emerge from science but are largely ignored by business: Autonomy, Mastery, and Purpose.
