Punished by Rewards with Alfie Kohn

We often praise others, create intricate rewards programs at work, compensation plans are loaded with performance goals….are all these things counter-productive?  Join us this week as Sarah Baca and Jay Hrcsko sit down with the author of the book Punished by Rewards, Alfie Kohn.  They discuss how “inside each carrot is a stick”, how to properly motivate people, and how to NOT offer praise.  Enjoy!
