Brown Bag Lunch Series

THE PUZZLE OF MOTIVATION: A TED TALK

 

“The Puzzle of Motivation” is the subject of the Brown Bag Lunch at the Jackson Memorial Library on Friday, March 8th at noon. The hour-long program will begin with a lively TED video talk by Dan Pink, author of Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us. After viewing the 19 minute video Port Clyde resident and entrepreneur Rob Kelley will lead a discussion of the implications of Pink’s central idea that there is a mismatch between what social science tells us and what business does. These keys to motivation have broad application for parents, teachers, bosses, employees - all of us!
