I think most of you are aware of my views on the rewards ... if not see what I have to say here on Measures Targets and Rewards.

And you may also have seen my little blitz on the subject in Twitter ... tagged #NOREWARDS.

I know many of you believe in rewards - from my Twitter Poll - well over half. But watch this TED video from Dan Pink and see if it changes your opinion at all. Even more compelling evidence that traditional rewards aren't always as effective as we think!

And Alfie Kohn thinks we are punished by rewards!!.
