Learn how to better motivate yourself and others in this recent popular TED Talk. In this talk writer Daniel H. Pink lays out the facts about what drives the best results in business. In study after study any work that requires creative problem solving does not benefit from external rewards such as money. Only mechanical tasks benefit when there is reward and punishment, but when creative solutions are required, workers are more motivated when they feel there is intrinsic value to what they are doing. Pink lays out some of the ways businesses have benefited by implementing policies to encourage the best in right brained, creative thinking.

How Does This Work for Other Species
Reviewer Pat Troise
 August 02, 2010
If we are not motivated to do our best and most creative work by carrots but by intrinsic rewards, I wonder how this applies to others species, particularly dogs, who have been assaulted by trainers who use behaviorism as the only model for teaching.
This is fascinating to me as a trainer. I am recognizing that I use distraction to force the dog to creatively problem solve because on some level I know that this mode of working is rewarding without the need for a clicker and a treat. Hmmmm....
Thank you for this validation of what I already sensed without having articulated it fully.
