Daniel Pink, best-selling author of A Whole New Mind, uses four decades of behavioral research to reveal why the traditional approach to high performance backfires on
most organizations. In a provocative and entertaining presentation, audiences will see how many common organizational incentives often go wrong—and can reduce both creativity and satisfaction on the job. Participants will learn that the people who do
what they do because of enjoyment of the task itself routinely outperform those who
are motivated by external rewards. With examples from cutting-edge companies and intriguing experiments around the world, audiences will learn the three key ingredients of intrinsically-motivated high performers—and demonstrate how organizations can create contexts that tap our deepest motivations to produce the highest results.
In this engaging presentation, Pink will:
- Explain the dangerous mismatch between what science knows and what business does
- Show, with real-life examples, why Motivation 3.0 — built on autonomy, mastery, and purpose — is much more effective than the 20th century approach to motivation
- Demonstrate and explain techniques like FedEx Days and autonomy audits that can help put these ideas into action
