The Unselfish Gene - Harvard Business Review

"The Idea in Brief

Executives, like most other people, have long believed that human beings are interested only in advancing their material interests.

However, recent research in evolutionary biology, psychology, sociology, political science, and experimental economics suggests that people behave far less selfishly than most assume. Evolutionary biologists and psychologists have even found neural and, possibly, genetic evidence of a human predisposition to cooperate.

These findings suggest that instead of using controls or carrots and sticks to motivate people, companies should use systems that rely on engagement and a sense of common purpose.

Several levers can help executives build cooperative systems: encouraging communication, ensuring authentic framing, fostering empathy and solidarity, guaranteeing fairness and morality, using rewards and punishments that appeal to intrinsic motivations, relying on reputation and reciprocity, and ensuring flexibility."

More than likely, you will find that you will decide on two tools, perhaps even three, to fit all your instructional design needs. However, you will use one of those tools as your mainstay, while you will adopt the others only when you need their strengths. In the same way that you might use Microsoft Word to write a report but incorporate spreadsheets you create in Excel, you may find that using Adobe Presenter works for you while incorporating Raptivity interactions, or that you will use Adobe Captivate and incorporate videos that you created in TechSmith Camtasia.
