Show #61 Daniel Pink on Startups and Motivation (part 2)
This week Bob and Pat conclude our interview with Daniel Pink, bestselling author of Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us.
In this show, we quiz Daniel on why public education systems don’t teach how to select your own motivation, how organizations can build that into their business DNA, get some answers for questions for Dan posted by our listeners, how he personally integrates work and personal time, and more.
The scientific research and conclusions Dan brings to the modern business world go a long way to explain why some startups founders succeed, others run out of steam, why some companies will succeed and others fail as we continue moving to an world based on creating ideas, not running assembly lines.
