  • What you’ll learn to do: Discuss impact of motivation in the workplace

    So far in this module, we’ve discussed the components of motivation and some of the most well-known and useful motivational theories. There are more theories out there, and we could go on for quite a while describing them. However, it’s important for managers to understand that all of them seek to predict human behavior and understand the mystery that is motivation, and that all of them bring some amount of clarity to the issue.

    Now it’s time to dig in to how exactly motivation impacts the workplace.
