This month's topic: The Puzzle of Motivation, presented by Dan Pink
Dan Pink examines the puzzle of motivation, starting with a fact that social scientists know but most managers don't: Traditional rewards aren't always as effective as we think. Listen for illuminating stories -- and maybe, a way forward.

Monthly, we view a recorded TED Talk (of about 20 min.) from those posted at ted.com. Talks are by a person notable in their field, who has interesting things to say. After viewing their piece, we'll break into smaller groups and talk about the ideas raised (with the occasional tangent! ;-)
Talks are selected because they spark the interest of Rebecca, our TED salon moderator, and are likely candidates for good conversation. (Recommendations are welcome - email Rebecca.)
Please join us!
