The Human Factors of Productivity:The Human Quest for Meaning
(Video from our partner – IT Excellence Institute)
Every manager must understand the equipment/tools they are given to work with. There are many drivers of productivity, but this video focuses in on one human factor: meaning.

When work has personal meaning, intrinsic motivation levels increase. Intrinsic motivation is powerful and enduring, unlike extrinsic motivation, which is episodic, and easy to get wrong. It is the type of motivation that drives an individual to stay on task longer, and more intensely; when work has great meaning, the worker is likely to remain engaged during their commute from work, and then pick the task back up at night, because they are positively stimulated by the assignment. Nothing can be more productive than that – and you can’t extrinsically match it. Watch this video to find out why it matters, and what you can do to tap into this wellspring of energy and motivation.
