Loved the book, it had many take aways and ponderables like the title. Lots of resources at the end of the book complete with more book suggestions and reviews. Plus a bonus list of questions that if engaged in are very insightful.
i really liked the topics and the approach of tge book. Yet I'm not psyched about the structure of the content and it's not a practitioner fieldbook.
it's a must read for anyone going into business management or anyone who manages a business now. I will definitely read it again and again and already recommended it to a couple friends.
This book also includes a lot of psychology and insight on why Motivation 3.0 works.
Decent book, plenty of new ideas about motivation in today's world. Lots of evidence rooted in scientific experiments presented.
The one complaint I have is the lack of any advice related to the folks in the "algorithmic" end of the spectrum. Sadly many jobs like that exist today and that's the reality. The book focuses more on those who have jobs that allow for some creativity. What I could gather is that if you have an algorithmic-type job, then motivation 2.0 is how you will be managed and the only thing you can do really is seek higher vocations that allow for some autonomy. The motivation 3.0 theory really only exists in places that are more progressive in their management styles. So while the end of the book is a bit pie-in-the-sky, the meat of the book serves as a good way of articulating that thrill you receive when solving problems that allow for some latitude when it come to how something is done.
I listened to it once and loved it so much that I got the print copy and listened to it again as I read along. I'm sure I will refer back to it even more as I try out some of the concepts at work and at home.
Everyone who wants to help their families, workmates, and themselves to find greater joy and fulfillment in their work should read this book!
Drive really helped me understand why the traditional approaches to motivation at work were falling short. I have know that throwing carrots in front my staff was not getting the job done, but I didn't fully grasp the shift in approach until this book. Believing that motivation has changed and understanding what to do about it are two very different things. I now understand what to do about it!
Dan has an incredible way of explaining the application of the new motivation. I took away dozens of ideas to implement now with my teams.
He has a great voice and his passion for the subject comes out beautifully.
I became very contemplative, reviewing my business and planning my new motivational strategy.
I actually purchased the audio edition to "fake" my way through a book I promised a friend I would read. I went back and re-read, highlighted, and made notes in my print version. I liked the audio because it got me started. I liked the print because it allowed me to digest.
The content is enlightening. Helps me think about my company and the individuals within it and how to motivate them.
The simple statement:
" if you ever want your child to never take out the trash again, pay them to do it once..."
Just the narration. He comes across as a "football jock" trying to sound intelligent. Not the best combination.
Surprise!- your doing it wrong...
I mean no disrespect to Pink with my feedback. I hope it is taken as constructive.
