We sometimes think that the more money we get as a reward, the better accomplishments at work we will make. However, research shows quite the opposite. While rewarding somebody for completing a tedious, routine task pays off, a project that requires creativity and non-standard thinking must never be motivated by a high reward, otherwise the quality will be poor or the task will never be accomplished at all. Watch the following RSA video to discover how and why such motivation never works. Your comments are welcome. The video is used with the permission of RSA-Animate.
