inspiring motivation

By May 29, 2010Leadership

In his book about motivation, Dan Pink describes three conditions that are needed to create an intrinsic motivational environment:

1.   Autonomy: Give people autonomy over what they’re doing and how they do it, including choosing their time, tasks, team and techniques.

2.   Mastery: Give them an opportunity to master their work and make progress through deliberate practice.

3.   Purpose: Make sure people have a sense of purpose in their work — preferably to something higher and beyond their job, salary and company.
