Motivation: The greatest lecture I have ever heard on motivation.

Motivation: The greatest lecture I have ever heard on motivation.



A long time client now an internal change agent at a Fortune 100 Corporation is designing a multi day conference for 200 executives. The top executive has one of the themes of the conference being that of  “Motivation”!! 


I am suggesting they hire Dan Pink or at least see this video. He is that great. 

Here is his Wholy Trinity of motivation. I heard Dan Pink speak first hand in an hour version of his sermon with Dr. Noel Tichy at the last Linkage OD Summit a few years ago. 

The first leg of the three legged stool is Autonomy. Any one who knowns me realizes that Freedom of choice has always been one of my prime values. Just look at my Argyris Video and you will see my conviction.


The second value is Purpose: Anyone who knows me has been hit with Purpose in everything I do. It started for me in the 60’s with Ron LIppit.

The third value is mastery. For me that is what OD is all about. Self as mastery and the change agent helping the organization become better and better. Sounds like development to me.
