Great TED Talk by Dan Pink on how rewards do not make a great motivation tool. There’s tons of research from decades worth of studies that have proved this, yet the system still continues as normal.
There’s a mismatch between what science knows and what business does.
Also making the rounds is the release of a study by Stanford concluding that multitasking makes you bad at everything you’re doing.
The huge finding is, the more media people use the worse they are at using any media.
So, bottom line, if you see an executive multitasking who works on rewards, run far away.
