Isn’t getting the best out of people a factor of motivation? Simple, isn’t it? Unfortunately, for most managers, motivation is not that easy.
Here are some basic principles which affect motivation:
- We human beings are basically selfish. We do things for our reasons not for that of others.
- You cannot motivate others because motivation comes from within a person.
- People exert effort to attain what they consider is important for them.
- Our motivation changes all the time as a result of changing priorities.
