What motivates employees? As a manager, you need to know why people come to work every day, what makes them stay - and what drives them to perform at their best. According to Teresa Amabile and Steven Kramer, the best leaders are able to build a cadre of employees who have satisfying inner work lives: consistently positive emotions; strong motivation; and favorable perceptions of the organization, their work, and their colleagues. To do this, you must create forward momentum in meaningful work.

Teresa Amabile is one of the best researchers in the field of workplace creativity, yet this book seems not to convey that. The balance of the book is skewed towards the stories from the journals, which makes it a bit of a tedious read. Nothing new beyond the HBR article she wrote based on the same, groundbreaking research.

This has been a very interesting book on the origins of one of the most Innovative companies in the history. However the quality of the recording is terrible.

I've read a lot of books about creativity, and this is by far one of the best, practical, and inspiring.
