an environment where motivation flourishes and people are encouraged to grow
and do their best. It will address
managing the process for aligning human capital with organizational goals. We will review the philosophies of workplace
motivation developed by four prominent 20th century theorists and
demonstrate how Dale Carnegie’s famous principles both precede and enhance
these theories of workplace motivation.
It has been said that only we can motivate ourselves. In other words, each individual is
responsible for maintaining their own energy, drive, and consistent
productivity. While most of us see that
this is clearly true to a large extent, it is still the responsibility of
leaders to create a work environment where this is encouraged to happen.
Some leaders are responsible for work environments
characterized by a lack of confidence, direction, enthusiasm, and
creativity. Motivation and teamwork are
minimal, both at the individual and team levels.
Other leaders excel at creating an organizational
environment where their teams feel motivated to achieve ever higher levels of
performance and success. Team members
are energized by their careers and the work they perform. Teams work collaboratively and creatively to
achieve organizational goals.
