Save The Date: The Daniel H. Pink Lecture

News PhotoAuthor Daniel Pink is coming to Drake for a presentation on Wednesday, December 1st from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at Sheslow Auditorium in Old Main, followed by a book signing. Mr. Pink comes to us out of some substantial work by SOE Professor Tom Westbrook and his coordination team with the Central Iowa Chapter of ASTD and the Des Moines Partnership as a part of his new leadership initiative.

Daniel H. Pink is the author of four provocative, bestselling books on the changing world of work.  In his latest book, Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us, Pink shows us that the secret to high performance and satisfaction in todays’ world is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world.  Based on forty years of scientific data supporting his argument that people need intrinsic rather than external motivation, Pink’s work revolutionizes the way that we look at performance and motivation.
