    B
    C
    D


    This is not a new concept.
    Any company that sells anything, provides $$ bonuses for its reps.
    It's all based on production.
    Daily, weekly, monthly - use your imagination.
    we already DO get bonuses for certain sales milestones made each week (and I just earned a nice one on friday ), so that incentive is already there... I should tell them that if they all hit thier goals for a week I'm having them all over and barbecuing some ribs since we're a tight knit group and have talked about doing something of the sort for quite a while and have never gotten around to it

    When you used the word "bribe," it made me wonder how your company viewed money.

    So what was the one about why it was more useful to be loved than feared? I think I want to send that to someone instead of the Drive book, he needs that one first....

    If you continuously have one guy outselling everyone else, perhaps you can level the playing field to a competition and/or reward for the greatest percentage increase from the previous month instead of hitting the largest total number. That way you have everyone starting from ground one, which was last months numbers. You put most of your team instantly back into the game.

    Poison. The one who makes the most sales gets a "raise" of being cured.

    This is an interesting TED lecture on human motivation. Apparently neither the carrot or stick approach work for vaguely complex tasks - it can even make things worse.

    I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.
