DorobekINSIDER: The Federal News Radio Book Club book announcement: Drive by Daniel H. Pink

Last year, I created something called the Federal News Radio Book Club. The idea is simple — it is something like the Oprah book club, but we talk about books that help you do your job better. And it isn’t a physical meeting. It is a radio gathering — we gather and discuss a book.

I’ve just selected the next book — and it is a book that will spur you to think.

The book: Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us by Daniel H. Pink

The details:
When: Friday, April 2 at 3p ET
Where: On Federal News Radio 1500 AM’s Daily Debrief with Chris Dorobek and Amy Morris and on
The book: Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us by Daniel H. Pink. Amy and I will be there with Pink — and I’m working on some special guests to join the discussion.

Essentially his thesis is that it is time for a new way of motivating people — motivation 3.0, if you will. And he argues that there is real evidence that the traditional carrot-and-stick approach isn’t effective for the challenges facing most organizations today.

Get more information about the book — and why I selected it — on the DorobekINSIDER.

I hope you’ll join us for the discussion… and submit your questions, thoughts and ideas.

Keith — I hope you’ll read the new book and participate in the discussion — what questions would you ask Mr. Pink? And do these concepts offer insights as OPM looks to build a better GS system for the federal government?

Love to get your thoughts.
