Dan Pink, a skillful author about how changing of the world works, posted a very surprising and helpful theory about what really motivates individuals to perform their best in todays work environment.

What really gets people going and makes them achieve more than they would be normally capable of lies within their feelings about themselves, about you and your company and about what they are doing.
Are you offering enough to your people?
