Congrats to the Canadian Women's hockey team in Torino, winners of Olympic gold!
A friend passed on this insight from sports psychologist Peter Jensen, who works with the Canadian women's team. In hockey, says Jensen, motivation is simple:
"It's, 'If we win, let's go for a beer. If we lose, let's go for a beer.'"
Next time HR tries to overcomplicate things, keep this in mind.
Thanks to Jeff for this one.
