What Matters - A Podcast from Mattermost

Aug 26, 2021

What motivates you on a daily basis? Something internal that drives you to take the reins and get to work? Something external like capital gain or fame? Maybe it's achieving a goal, like releasing the 25th episode of a podcast!

In the latest episode of What Matters, PJ sits down with Zef Hemel, Engineering Lead at Mattermost and musing writer, to discuss different kinds of motivation and what works in Open Source and at Mattermost. Learn about how to motivate people properly and what pitfalls to avoid when looking at things like rewards.

Some of the things Zef shared with us:

No More Rewards - Zef's Blog

Punishment By Rewards by Alfie Kohn

Drive by Daniel Pink

This episode also includes a visit from Ben Lloyd Pearson to share the Open Source News that Matters - featuring Github's new legal assistance program and cool projects from the folks at Facebook and Gitlab!
