Whether or not we realize it, success in the workplace is largely an issue of motivation. Employees often struggle to find energy at work, to mobilize their effort for high-quality performance, and to persist at work-related tasks.
Managers can use different strategies to strengthen their employees’ motivation. One approach is to use extrinsic motivators – bonuses, promotions, evaluations, or even threats of punishment. Yet employees can also be motivated from within, especially when given opportunities to master new skills, to collaborate with others, and to regulate their own activities.
Indeed, an extensive body of research within Self-Determination Theory has found that tapping into employees’ self-determined motivation helps to harness their passion and effort at work. How can managers best support such motivation among their employees?
