Language: English

Short Description: Motivation is the set of individual forces that initiate, direct, and cause individuals to persist in their efforts to accomplish a goal or task. When individuals think of worker motivation, they tend to believe that giving more effort and working harder naturally leads to better job performance; it is more complicated than that, as performance is impacted by other factors unrelated to motivation. Determining someone’s individual needs is the first step to answering figuring out how to motivate them. Any discussion on motivation isn’t complete unless rewards are also considered.

An important element of workplace management is when managers motivate workers to do their job well. This course discusses worker motivation, what motivates people to do their job well, and how managers can learn to motivate their workforce.
