What really motivates us?

This RSA video has been tweeted here, there and everywhere (hat-tip to m’colleague, StickFight). It really deserves ten minutes of your time. You don’t need to watch it (although that’s fun), just listen. It’s a talk at the RSA by Dan Pink, all about what really motivates us.

Lots of techie mentions, notably Atlassian and Wikipedia, with quotes from Steve Jobs and Skype.

If you have managers, they need to see this. I can’t guarantee they’ll get it though :-)
