In this video-based course, career analyst 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.

2) Understand 'The Candle Problem’.
