The three motivators after money

In surprising coincidence, I can across Dan Pink’s work from three different sources. I had bought his sales book ‘To sell is human’ and was flicking through this. I attended the Radtac event on values and behaviours this week ‘Agile is about people’ by their COO Michael Short and he mentioned Dan Pink and the three motivators:

  1. Autonomy
  2. Mastery
  3. Purpose

Then the very next day Dean Leffingwell on the SPC course discussed Dan Pink’s work and pointed us in the direction of this video.

The video explains all you need to know.
