One of my favorite speakers and authors is Daniel Pink. He’s a trend-spotter. He’s a lifelong learner and dedicated researcher.

His book, Free Agent Nation was easily five years ahead of its time -- and it’s only seven years old. A Whole New Mind is still opening up brains stuck on yesterday’s way. Johnny Bunko, the anime career guide, is ground-breaking work. And now, Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us.

This video could be one I show more than any other this year:

Two questions that can change your life from Daniel Pink on Vimeo.

What motivates us -- and those we lead? Every person in a position of leadership: Teacher, Administrator, Trainer, Coach -- all should dive into Dan’s new book, Drive. I’ve just begun to read it and I’m hooked. There’s even a toolkit in the back of the book.

This will be a great piece for group studies with your peers.

In the Des Moines area, we’re fortunate that Daniel will be virtually and digitally visiting as part of his book tour. Stay tuned for more information and keep Tuesday evening, February 16th open on your calendar. You can follow updates with the Twitter tag #DriveDSM
