The surprising truth about what motivates us

On merit pay and the science behind what motivates us.  This video has perhaps had the greatest impact on my developing ideas on how to measure effectiveness and reward our teachers.



If you watch no other video that I have ever put or will ever put up on this blog, watch this one.

It makes sense.  But watch for one thing that I worry puts a lot of it “at risk” – there is a point where he says “pay people enough to take the issue of money off the table” – this is an issue –  because that point is a hugely varying point. For some that number might be $50,000.  For some it might be $100,000.  For others it might be $200,000.  So – how do we fix that one?

Amazing video – well thought out, well presented and it’s really got me thinking.
