The topic of this discussion is…..Your Understanding of MOTIVATION Theories

Please reflect on the MOTIVATION theories we discussed in class. Given your own personal experiences with work or team environments, highlight how the different theories explain your behavior or the behavior of others you observed.

Some areas for thought include: observations regarding intrinsic or extrinsic rewards? The existence of motivating vs. hygiene factors? Were any aspects of goal-setting particularly helpful? Other theories that explain any phenomena that you experienced?

How can you use your knowledge of these theories to further your management development?
