Motivating employees — A discussion based on the book Drive

Join Beth Forbes and the ACE Leadership and Management SIG on March 1 in a discussion about motivating employees based on the book "Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us." Author Daniel H. Pink contends that traditional approaches to employee motivation – like financial rewards for good behavior – don’t work. What does motivate employees, according to Pink, is meaningful work and the ability to direct their own lives and opportunities to learn and create new things. For many of us who have lean budgets, the good news is that the work we do should and does have the potential to really motivate our staff. If you get a chance to read the book or not, please join the discussion as we share insights into how to really motivate employees.
