It is sometimes difficult to determine what motivates an individual. Sometimes it’s even hard to figure out our own motivations. This Discussion gives you the opportunity to explore what inspires you to do a job or activity well.

To prepare for this Discussion:

  • Reflect on a job or activity that you found to be the most motivational to perform or complete.

Post a comprehensive response to the following:

  • What aspects of the job or activity made it motivational for you?
  • What type, or types, of motivational techniques were used in that job or activity?
  • How could a manager in your current job apply those techniques?
