Samenvatting

Bestselling author Dan Ariely reveals fascinating new insights into motivation—showing that the subject is far more complex than we ever imagined.

Every day we work hard to motivate ourselves, the people we live with, the people who work for and do business with us. In this way, much of what we do can be defined as being “motivators.” From the boardroom to the living room, our role as motivators is complex, and the more we try to motivate partners and children, friends and coworkers, the clearer it becomes that the story of motivation is far more intricate and fascinating than we’ve assumed.

Payoff investigates the true nature of motivation, our partial blindness to the way it works, and how we can bridge this gap. With studies that range from Intel to a kindergarten classroom, Ariely digs deep to find the root of motivation—how it works and how we can use this knowledge to approach important choices in our own lives. Along the way, he explores intriguing questions such as: Can giving employees bonuses harm productivity? Why is trust so crucial for successful motivation? What are our misconceptions about how to value our work? How does your sense of your mortality impact your motivation?

Recensie(s)

'Dan Ariely makes the strong case that the best way to motivate people, including ourselves, is not through persuasive tactics, however subtle, but by providing the groundwork for meaning in people's lives. We are all striving to become better people. To paraphrase Ben Franklin, we want to be healthier, wealthier and wiser' -- James Altucher * Wall Street Journal * ' Too many managers believe people are motivated by money , Ariely says ... Gratitude and compliments are better motivators , Ariely says...This is all true, and characteristically engagingly written.' * Financial Times * [A] short and fascinating account of what motivates people at work and in every other aspect of their lives . . . An insightful read for leaders who want to know how to get the best out of everyone around them.' * BizEd * A surprisingly empathetic and practical volume, behavioral economist Dan Ariely's slim, 100-page primer on motivation will be the book you wish your boss had read.' * Fortune Magazine * A quirky exploration of the mysteries behind human motivation . . . Ariely writes in an approachable, chipper style . . . A mostly provocative account of how inner turmoil drives us.' * Kirkus Reviews *
