Motivation and recognition

Motivate me!

A quote often attributed to American psychologist and philosopher William James is that man's demand for recognition is an ineradicable part of his nature.

This appears to explain why recognition recognition and motivation are frequently mentioned in the same breath. For example, many managers believe they are responsible for their employees' motivation. At the same time, we are not aware of any employee survey which does not lament the lack of praise and recognition. This leads to the hypothesis that organisations make recognition improbable.

Our workshop on the subject scrutinises the conflicts motivation model and paradoxes arising in organisations and supports managers in adopting a position on them that will help them in their day-to-day work.
