Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us - February 25, 2011

Posted by: danny 2/25/2011 9:33 PM

Friday

Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us
Conventional wisdom has it that external rewards like money are often the most powerful motivations to perform and succeed. In his new book, author Daniel Pink refutes that thinking. In, Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us, Pink writes that the secret to high 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.

On Friday's HearSay, guest host Barbara Hamm Lee will talk with Pink about why he believes that carrots and sticks worked successfully in the 20th century, but it's precisely the wrong way to motivate people for today’s challenges.

Scheduled Guest:
Daniel Pink
