The puzzle of motivation

Career analyst Dan Pink examines the puzzle of motivation, starting with a fact that social scientists know but most managers don't: Traditional rewards aren't always as effective as we think.
Joanna Gillespie's insight:

Dan Pink claims that carrot and stick does not work for cognitive tasks. 'If' 'then' motivation tactics do not produce creative thinking, they narrow the mind.

 

Maybe instead of telling our students to aim for an A, a distinction, a 1st, we should encourage them to aim to produce their best possible piece, to work towards mastering their subject.
