Motivation and Empowerment
Leaders must often motivate team members to perform at their optimal levels and remain engaged. Motivation can be broken down into two types of motivators–internal and external or intrinsic and extrinsic. Given what you are learning in this class, write a paper describing a system designed for motivation and empowerment in your organization. In your assessment address the following questions:
- What would you do to make your team members excited about the work?
- Find some examples of each type of motivator, and which is more powerful for leaders to use?
Based on your experiences in teams or organizations, which types of motivators are used most often?
