Assignment 2: Using Motivation to Improve Performance
What exactly is motivation? What influences motivation? What role does a leader play in motivating others? These are the types of questions that you will be addressing in this assignment.
- 1. Create a one (1) page outline in which you select topics and subtopics around your recommendations to improve the employee’s involvement.
- 2. Explain three (3) of the most critical topics you have included in your outline, and propose a potential course of implementation. (3-4 pages)
Motivation is a complex subject, but its understanding and application is central to the success of management and the organization. Imagine that the CEO/ Director of your organization (current or past) has tasked you with recommending actions to promote employee’s involvement. This is a very important task. We recommend you start by drafting an outline of you potential ideas. Thereafter, you can explain in detail your proposal to the CEO/ Director. The outline should not be a reiteration of motivation theory, but should provide succinct points that cover the key topics of motivation and provides a road map that management can implement to improve motivation within the organization.
