Food for Thought

We all need to know how we're doing. Left unchecked, a problem performance behavior can turn attitudes of the other employees cancerous within the organization.”
Kevin Burns


"The really interesting moment will be when you have a critical mass of people engaging through the networks, more than through the press and TV. When that happens, the culture of politics has to change, moving away from controlled one-way messages towards a political culture that is more questioning.”
Geoff Mulgan


“To summarize, using money to motivate people can be a double-edged sword. For tasks that require cognitive ability, low to moderate performance-based incentives can help. But when the incentive level is very high, it can command too much attention and thereby distract the person’s mind with thoughts about the reward. This can create stress and ultimately reduce the level of performance.”
Dan Ariely


 “What we believe is heavily influenced by what we think others believe.”
Thomas Gilovich
