How important is autonomy in the workplace? According to Daniel Pink in his new book “Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us”, it is very important. There are four parts of autonomy that “managers” need to address:
- Task: What we work on.
- Time: When we work on it.
- Technique: How we work on it.
- Team: Who we work on it with.
Move to Motivation 3.0 – Start by allowing autonomy with those you work with. Watch motivation and creativity soar!
