How can a manager effectively motivate others in an organization?
Motivation is a general term used to describe the process of starting, directing, and maintaining physical and psychological activities. In a formal sense motivation is defined as "all those inner striving conditions described as needs, drives, desires, motives, and so forth. It is an inner state that activates or moves." The employees’ abilities, outside work activities, available resources, working conditions, and the style of management are important factors to consider when diagnosing what is thought to be a motivation problem.
