Compliance vs contribution

Seth godin says, we value compliance more than contribution but should actually be the other way round. Making someone complying is easier than that of contribution. People prefer the one who say "yes boss" rather than the one who contributes. And the one who really contributes will not comply with everything. We want compliance to keep things under our control and push for contribution.
What happens if we promote more of contribution rather than compliance. We can get things done and the only fear is losing control, losing the authority. But the authority is only to get the contribution and it is not required if contribution happens on its own. That means the job is done quickly, then move on to get another contribution.

we need to encourage contribution over compliance and compliance to be adhered only to the extent of not affecting the contribution.
