There is a theory that motivation can only come from within, however, as a manager you will have the responsibility to not only manage the daily activities of your employees but to also motivate them. Understanding the individual characteristics of your employees is key as this allows you to have a personal approach based on their personality rather than relying solely on your leadership style.
