RSA Animate – Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us

A friend of mine put me onto the RSA Organisation, and i have to say that they have some incredibly insightful talks/lectures/animations that really do make you think about some important social and work issues.

The RSA is a self proclaimed enlightenment organisation committed to researching and presenting practical solutions to some of today’s social challenges. Utilising its 27K strong following, it aims to understand and enhance human capability so that it can close the gap between the reality of today, and the hopes for tomorrow’s world.

This video below, is well put together, including some great animation which seems to make the content sink even deeper into your mind cogs. It talks about Motivation, and within a work environment this has to be one of the most important factors to gain the most out of your Human Capital. It actually highlights some surprising truths and ideas about the real reasons and motivations behind ‘Motivation’ (yes i did write that correctly).

Which company would want to recruit, train, and invest into its staff to then go and demotivate them, so that they begin to look elsewhere and leave, which will eventually reduce the bottom line? We have all worked in a an uninspiring workplace, for bad managers or bosses and we have all been as quick to leave. Surely offering autonomy, promoting innovation and instilling trust in your employees and work colleagues is imperative to a well functioning company? Perhaps this is not so obvious to all.

  1. Love that video. Rings true. Inspirational on every level, I feel any company should be forced to watch this before hiring people/having reviews!

  2. haha, i hear ya. I think we have a common experience that makes us both understand the need for moral and motivation in the workplace….? You know who i mean…! 🙂

    No moral = no motivation = no work = hand in notice = new leaf = new job = better opportunities = happier!!!
