It has to be said that Dan Pink is getting to the grist of things here in terms of motivation, and the next steps are what this means for all the other aspects of our system.

We don't have this system yet (not by a longshot). That is why I wrote The Common Purpose Manifesto, to offer up ideas on a system that might well make fulfilment without harm a reality for all of us.
