Are you indispensable? | Daniel Pink
by Scott Smith
GODIN: Do you agree with me that every successful organization needs people like this today? Problem solvers, self-drivers, artists?
PINK: Of course. Not even a close call.
GODIN: How then do we merge the two motivations? How do we get people to bring their artist to work?
PINK: Stop treating people like horses and start treating them like human beings. Instead of trying to bribe folks with sweeter carrots or threaten them with sharpen sticks, how about giving them greater freedom at work, allowing them to get better at something they love, and infusing the workplace with a sense of purpose? If we tap that third drive more fully, we can rejuvenate or businesses and remake our world.
