Motivating People

As I move through my career I’m shifting away from just interacting with computers (coding, managing servers and database, etc.) and working more with people and how they can utilize the technology.  This shift, as well as my interest in project and people management, makes me more interested in articles like this one, How to Force People to do Anything (and have them thank you for it). Although the article uses consumer examples, the same cam be applied to workers; if you help people get started on a project, they will be more motivated to continue on their own.
