    mon. Most of my work has been incentive based, and my employers had been more like partners.  in some places in the u.s. employers use the term partner for their staff.

    it's not a hard mold to break.

    you can get 3x more out of someone when they both feel they have a stake or actually have stake in what they are doing.

      a cooperative?  Are the workers equal owners?  Do they have control over the means of production?

      Your last statement is true, which is why I believe the working class has to control their own production and not be workers for a boss.   Everyone works harder when they feel like they have a stake in what happens, and everyone gets pissed off if they are continually abused by a unfeeling Corporatist boss.

      •  can also be called capitalism (0+ / 0-)

        the stake doesn't have to be ownership.  it's just a share of the reward.  it happens in all the best work that I have done.  the owners could can you if they felt like it, but i have never actually met an owner of the greed mold.  I've only met owners who are happy to pay well for on time high quality work.  and generally their first complaint is they can't find more people like that.  the asshole bosses are out there, and the corporatists are dealing at an impersonal level.
