Ted Talk On Employee Motivation

From the comments:

I’ve been teaching this for years. NEVER MOTIVATE. You can’t motivate other people. You can inspire (which is temporary) but you cant motivate (which is more meaningful and lasting). Leaders waste tremendous amounts of energy and time trying to motivate people they’re already paying to do the job. Instead work on creating an environment where SELF motivation is expected, encouraged, and incentivized.
