The Magic of Motivation – Using Autonomy, Mastery and Purpose to improve business performance

The Magic of Motivation – Talk by Pratap Nambiar, Chairman, Thought Perfect

Pratap Nambiar, Chairman of Thought Perfect, gave a talk to the members of the Rotary Club of Jurong Town at the Tanglin Club in Singapore on October 30, 2012.

The talk helped the members appreciate the powers of intrinsic motivation and the relevance of Autonomy, Mastery and Purpose to help improve business performance.

Mr.Nambiar highlighted that the usually held-beliefs of rewards and punishment do not work for heuristic jobs which are crying out for more self-directed behaviour that is so critical to strategy execution.

He drew an important distinction between ‘management’ and ‘autonomy’. Management is all about control which leads to compliance, whilst autonomy enhances engagement – a vital need for the maximisation of human potential.
