Thanks again to blogger friend Pat H. from Successful Teaching who has alerted me to …

This lively RSA Animate, adapted from Daniel Pink’s talk at the RSA, illustrates the hidden truths behind what really motivates us at home and in the workplace.  In the talk Pink explains why larger financial rewards don’t always, in fact rarely, equal better performances on tasks. Pink’s idea that innovation should be rewarded more than performance on a standard task.
