The best business phrase ever – update
Incentives shape behaviour.
It’s true of all people, at all times. It’s deeply coded in our DNA, and unlikely to change anytime soon.here’s some thought starters on the depth of the phrase.
Incentives: are not necessarily monetary, rather ideas which will improve the perceived situation of the decision maker.
Shape: for things to be shaped it takes time, they must be moulded, caressed, developed and iterated.
Behaviour: is action related. It is about what people do, not what they think about or like, it’s about motion.
Whenever I make a decision as a marketer and an entrepreneur I think deeply about these 3 words.
