I recommend the book by Rob Goffee and Gareth Jones called “clever”. Makes me realise that I’m very fortunate to have recruited and be working with a very clever team of board and executive coaches. They have all taught me so much and it requires me to lead them in a special way which allows their talents and abilities to flourish with sufficient autonomy, continual search for mastery and a sense of purpose. Enjoy the book!

The new book is called “Drive – the surprising truth about what really motivates us”. I heard Daniel speak at the RSA and found him highly engaging, very human and motivational. It will turn what you think about bonuses and extrinsic motivation into a greater focus on intrinsic motivation.
What can you do that is sustainable as a leader?
If you know now what you will know in 2011, how would you act and behave differently?
