Performance, revisited

If we share an idea with 100 people, maybe 10 of them will think it’s a good one. If we are lucky, one of them will act on it.

Starting a movement can seem grinding. And it is. But for every person we inspire into action, we multiply the results. In other words, we can scale grinding.

Here’s an idea worth sharing: why we work determines how well we work. Sounds obvious? Yet, most organizations “motivate” their employees by increasing emotional and financial pressures at work, techniques that are now scientifically proven to hurt performance.

Ethical leaders can learn more about the latest performance research published by Vega Factor in the book titled Primed to Perform. While it is not intended to be a book about business ethics, the findings describe the way to ethical performance.

Will you be the one igniting changes in your organization?
