Drive: by Dan Pink.

Leaders try to reward teams with incentives and punish them with (negative) consequences. Dan Pink draws on social science research to understand how to truly motivate high performance and satisfaction at work and at home. Rather than the reward/punishment approach, Pink describes how three factors, mastery, autonomy, and purpose, motivate high performance. Finally, Pink shows leaders how to shape opportunities for teams to become truly engaged in their work, become connected to their purpose, and fulfill their potential.
