John Dayton sent me a video by Daniel Pink about motivation, See http://www.danpink.com/archives/2010/06/whiteboard-magic. I thought it was interesting and cute.
Then I read "Management Lessons from Mayo Clinic" because I was so impressed with how well the Mayo Clinic is run. Mayo has institutionalized Minnesota "nice" by creating a purposeful organization - just what Pink was talking about.
If people work because they want to be creative, cooperate, be productive, and give back to the community - rather than work for money - what does that say about the moral foundations of our society?
