Understanding Human Motivation and Why We’re Different from Other Primates

The understanding of human nature is fundamental to being a good manager.  This video lecture by Robert Sapolsky is the most advanced information I have seen on human motivation to date, and is the most striking exposition of the difference between humans and the other primates I have yet see.  This is a “must watch” in my opinion.

Please feel free to comment on this key area of knowledge, the ground-breaking work of Dr. Sapolsky, and how it relates to the effectiveness of a manager.     — Tim
