Dan Pink – The Genius Hour

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

It would be fair to say Nigel and I are pretty big Dan Pink fans (ok fanboys) – His articulation of what motivates people is a constant reference and reminder, both personally and one we often recommend to others.  It’s HERE  from TED and HERE as a clever cartoon in case you have been under a rock and missed it.

We are also massive fans of Hack-A-Thons, Fed-Ex days, 20% time etc – but it is always a challenge to introduce to organisations.  Today he reports on a great little innovation by Jen Shefner, the Genius Hour – 60mins each week where she (the boss) does her employees job to give them 60min to be autonomous and awesome.

Maybe you can’t get a whole day out with your team, but surely you can find everyone an hour.  When you empower your team they will surprise and delight.
