Leadership Nudge™ – The Science of Empowerment

One of the fundamental constructs of Intent-Based Leadership is this idea that there is a relationship between control, competence and clarity.

It turns out that science supports these three legs as motivations for human beings.


Dan Pink summarized and popularized that science in his book DRiVE. Pink uses the words autonomy, mastery and purpose. but “autonomy” is what we mean when we talk about control, “mastery” is competence and “purpose” is clarity.

Now, ours is better because we have all C’s, but if you want to learn about the science behind control, competence and clarity, read Dan Pink’s book DRiVE.

I’m David Marquet and that’s your Leadership Nudge.
