A few days ago I tweeted,
How bad would it be for me to anonymously leave a copy of @DanielPink ‘s book Drive on the desk of every exec[utive] at work?
First, I actually think every person supervising others and even those working in our flat teams should study and implement this. The good news is I already see hints of it in the work place nestled in the cracks. Knowing why these behaviors improve performance and taking it to the next level is the dream. We have superstar teams and this is why. Second, ever since I watched the Pink’s TED Talk and RSA videos, these ideas are things I mention. The book just adds more fuel to the fire.
This is a easy read. The appendix contains a summary of how to apply these ideas as an individual, an organization, or as an educator. And the bibliography gives me the changes to dive even deeper.
