Motivational Factors

Filed under: leadership — Neil @ 7:00 am

In Linchpin Seth Godin provides Richard Florida’s findings in what motivates creative professionals to do their best work.  The top 10 are:

  1. Challenge & responsibility
  2. Flexibility
  3. A stable work environment
  4. Money
  5. Professional development
  6. Peer recognition
  7. Stimulating colleagues & bosses
  8. Exciting job content
  9. Organizational culture
  10. Location & community

For creatives (& I believe many others) it’s not (just) about the money.  For those of us who lead volunteers how does this change how we lead them?
