Deutsche Bahn will Führungs- und Karrierevorschriften ändern - Die Deutschen Bahn will neue Führungs- und Karrierevorschriften für ihre Führungskräfte: „Wir ändern die Spielregeln“, sagte Personalchef Ulrich Weber dem „Handelsblatt“ (Donnerstagsausgabe). „Wie beim Fußballspielen: Den Ball nach vorn zu dreschen, wird wegen Abseits abgepfiffen, wenn der Mitspieler da allein vor dem Tor steht. Gemeinsames Kurzpassspiel wird dagegen honoriert.“ Seit Januar zähle nur noch die Gemeinschaftsleistung bei der Bahn.

Does Money Motivate? | PBS NewsHour Extra Classical thinking says that rewarding individuals with high pay will bring about the highest performance and buy the greatest talent; but new science says that may be outmoded thinking. Some social scientists say motivating people with excessive salaries may have consequences, including limiting innovation, encouraging short-term risk taking and discouraging loyalty. Author and former Al Gore speech writer, Dan Pink, says that non-material incentives, such as the opportunity to do good work or engage intellectually, may motivate people to think more creatively and solve more complex problems in the modern world.

Screw Finding Your Passion Remember back when you were a kid? You would just do things. You never thought to yourself, “What are the relative merits of learning baseball versus football?” You just ran around the playground and played baseball and football. You built sand castles and played tag and asked silly questions and looked for bugs and dug up grass and pretended you were a sewer monster. Nobody told you to do it, you just did it. And the beautiful thing was, if you hated baseball, you just stopped playing it. And if you loved looking for bugs, you just did that. There was no bullshit. Today I received approximately the 11,504th email this year from a person telling me that they don’t know what to do with their life. And of course, I didn’t respond. But more importantly, what I want to say to these people is this: that’s the whole point — “not knowing” is the whole fucking point. The common complaint among a lot of these people is that they need to ‘find their passion.’ I call bullshit. It’s priorities.
