The organisations that succeed in their mission will be the ones that fundamentally shift the way they think about motivating their employees, according to best-selling author and speaker Daniel Pink.

Daniel Pink is renowned for his research and writing about business, organisations and human behaviour. He is the author of numerous books, including To Sell is Human: The Surprising Truth About Moving Others, Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us, and Free Agent Nation: The Future of Working for Yourself.

Pink has been named one of the top 15 business thinkers in the world and he was on hand to give one of the keynote addresses at the recent Future of Work conference held by the University of Melbourne’s Centre for Workplace Leadership.

Via a video link-up from Canada, Pink walked the conference attendees through his formula for re-thinking motivation and how to start making changes to their employee’s motivation levels.

As Pink describes it, the future of work is about building organisations that “foster both humanity and productivity”.
