Most people have one approach when it comes to management and leadership. To motivate their team, managers will resort to punishments or rewards. They offer up fun prizes for the top performers and performance plans to those at the bottom -- and hope that those incentives will make their team produce top-notch results.
But that approach doesn't always work. People need to feel meaning in their actions and jobs, not just consequences.
Nobody knows this better than author Daniel Pink. He's written multiple New York Times best-selling books on management, leadership, and behavior, and was named one of the most influential thinkers in business in 2013.
