Quit Wasting Time on People that Need to Be Motivated
Jim Collins (Good to Great and Built to Last) says that spending time trying to motivate people / manage people, is a waste of time. The key, he believes, is finding people who are self-motivated, and then creating a climate in which you don't do stupid things to demotivate already self-motivated people.
The core of his message:
"The need to motivate people melts away when you start with the right people."
