Do you ever wonder how the largest non-profit organizations and churches motivate all those people to give their precious time and money away toward their cause?
A few years ago Daniel Pink published Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us.
He gave us his findings that people are motivated by 3 things.
- Autonomy: People want to have control over their work.
- Mastery: People want to get better at what they do.
- Purpose: People want to be part of something that is bigger than they are.
Curiously enough, people aren’t motivated by money. In fact his findings show that more money often equates to poorer work.
This video outlines his concept.
