These FREE management resources will help you acquire the skills needed to perform your role effectively.
This eBook describes five contemporary motivation theories, including:
McClelland's Human Motivation Theory
Sirota's Three-Factor Theory
Alderfer's ERG Theory
Amabile and Kramer's Progress Theory
Handy's Motivation Theory
Each of these theories can give you an insight into what motivates the people in your team and help you to assess which of their needs are being met, and which are not. Overall, these theories suggest that you probably have far more opportunity to improve the morale and productivity of your team than you imagine. This is because most of the factors that increase team motivation are ‘cultural’ rather than monetary and are things that you have direct control over.
