Are you indispensable? | Daniel Pink

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.

Well there’s a thought that applies to learning: maybe we should focus a bit more on purpose rather than rewards like points on a test?

(Thanks, Wayne for pointing me to this!)
