A Fool’s Errand: Trying to Motivate Employees with a Carrot or a Stick
Susan Fowler on the Science of Motivation
Would you be more inclined to listen to this week’s edition of Monday Morning Radio if you knew that one lucky listener would win a Silver Aluminum Apple Watch? Perhaps.
Susan, who has worked alongside management guru Ken Blanchard for more than two decades and co-authored three books with Ken, is an expert on the science of motivation.
Her own book, Why Motivating People Doesn’t Work…and What Does, explodes the conventional wisdom that to motivate others – or even yourself – you have two choices, the carrot or the stick. That may work for horses, Susan says, but not for listeners of this podcast or for any other sentient human being.
