 Here is an interesting piece of "scientific" evidence of some of manager-tools recommendation and statements that "we are not productive because we are happy.  We are happy because we are productive."

Somethings to think about from Ted talk by Dan Ariely: What makes us feel good about our work?

"By getting people to work harder, they actually got people to love what they were doing to a higher degree."

"Ignoring the performance of people is almost as bad as shredding their efforts in front of their eyes."

I loved the talk.  In my opinion, a must see for every manager.
