On Season 1 Episode 7:
Incentives are necessary drivers of motivation and we all have to get paid to perform our craft. But when money is tied to performance, weird things start to happen. Business owners, leaders and entrepreneurs need to understand when and how incentives can drive increased performance, and when they may actually be undermining performance, demotivating employees and creating a decline in performance.
