I listen to this book every once in a while anytime I need help with motivation. I also make use of the things discussed within these pages as I manage employees, lead other, non work related, groups and interact with my children. There are a lot of amazing tidbits of information in a lot of books. But this is one of the densest sources in my life
Topic is so huge, that it wont fit in one book. Admittedly author is be aware of this fact and gives an exellent path to follow, after you've read his own book.
It is interesting to read what motivates us as worker and as a team. Autonomy seems to be king, and that makes sense.
Great ideas and useful concepts. It lacks data (in my opinion, there was some data) in selling the idea. I cant see my self selling this idea to my CEO as a new way to motivate the sales force. However, I think the ideas a great, resonate with what I have seen and definitely points to the future.
After listening to this audiobook, I was paralyzed by the surprising new pair of eyes through which I now looked at the world. From motivating our children, our coworkers, and even our nation, Pink describes the motivation behind why most of us suffer from discontentment in our careers.
Through science-backed research, Pink has ripped a black hole in the universe where most of us have lost our Drive, and opened a whole new world of possibilities in personal motivation.
Perfect balance between science and stories that provides the reader tangible ways to make changes to our thinking. Daniel Pink has an entertaining way explaining things that sticks in the mind of the reader.
Solopraneur, father of three, husband, thinker (not necessarily in that order)
Deeply enjoyable and remarkably practicable. Pink goes out of his way to make the topic understandable and the way to implement it clear.
