Drive : The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 560

We've been conditioned to think that the best way to motivate ourselves and others is through external rewards like money or fame, or by the fear of punishment - the carrot-and-stick approach. That's a mistake, Daniel H. Pink says in his transformative new book. The key to high performance and satisfaction is intrinsic, internal motivation: the desire to follow your own interests and understand the benefits in them for you. In Drive, Pink lays out the hard science for these surprising insights; describes how people and corporations can embrace them; offers details about how we can master them; and provides concrete examples of how intrinsic motivation works on the job, at home and in ourselves.

Insights into Reward and Recognition

A well written book. Intrinsic motivation is an area that is covered by many examples. The author drives home the point that every motive is not economic in nature. Thinkers and Creators do well with intrinsic motivation.

Industrial Age thinking around measurement, goals and rewards may be counter productive in the Information age. With people becoming more independent (and wanting to work for themselves), this becomes an important factor towards satisfaction.

The author has an interesting observation that a "fine" sometimes increases bad behaviour (since it accounts for a pen

Truly Eye-Opening. A book for the true 'People Person'

I totally enjoyed reading this book. Dan Pink has covered the topic of Human Motivation and what it should be ‘Today’ in a very scientifically structured and coherent manner.

I would recommend that not only HR people (L&D teams in particular) but also ‘forward-thinking’ and ‘open-minded’ Leaders and their Managers read this book and to begin applying this gradually. I’m aware that change of such a magnitude may not be easy to implement right away, but envisioning the incremental benefits, a gradual change is better than no change at all.

Fantastic !

Loved reading this book. I had heard the content many times on the TED talk by Dan, but never thought about reading the book length version. Hats off to Dan for the amount of research he has done on the subject. The book can be read pretty fast, also towards the end, there are quite many pages summarizing the material from the initial chapters, and also a [sort of] 'self test'. Overall, an enjoyable and interesting read.

Awesome for HR people

If you are someone who works for a corporation that employs the carrot and stick approach of monetary compensation then this book is meant for you. Daniel Pink has turned the idea on its head by challenging the basic tenets of how organisations choose to compensate their employees.

DRIVE drives home the point

This is a brilliant work by a thought leader (listen to Dan Pink on TED talk): authoritative, current (well referenced with recent, landmark works), and at the same time of lasting value. The author's theories and research on each of the 3 components of DRIVE - autonomy, mastery & purpose - are impressive in depth and scope. The summaries and recommended reading at the end are very useful. I have gifted this book to several friends. Highly recommended for the modern professionals.
