Assignment 2: Using Motivation to Improve Performance
Motivation is a complex subject, but its understanding and application is central to the success of management and organizational success. Imagine that you have been tasked by the CEO of your organization (current or past) with recommending actions to improve the motivation of the organization’s employees. The CEO has requested that you prepare a talking paper explaining to management what motivation is, the factors that influence motivation, the role of the leader in motivation, and ways the organization can inspire motivation. The talking paper should not be a reiteration of motivation theory, but should provide succinct points that cover the key topics of motivation and provides a road map that management can implement to improve motivation within the organization. Note: You may create and / or make all necessary assumptions needed for the completion of this assignment.
For an explanation of a talking paper and tips to create a successful one, read the article titled “How to Write a Talking Points Paper”, . Also, review the document titled “Talking Paper Instructions”.
