How to motivate your problem solvers

From Brandon Rhorer's LinkedIn post

Hey engineering managers,

(I don’t speak for all of your team, but I probably speak for a couple of them.) Nothing pushes us to do our best work like a good sticky problem to solve. Motivational sayings don’t do much. Targets and reporting is a necessary evil. Micromanaging is a huge annoyance. Bonuses are nice, but not really a reason to jump out of bed in the morning. And browbeating is the fastest way to chase us off. But give us a problem to solve and the space to solve it, and you won't be able to pry it out of our hands at the end of the workday.
