MOTIVATING PERSONNEL TECHNIQUES TO SECURE THE BEST RESULTS

While this presentation examines specific techniques for motivating personnel, the author's greatest concern is to introduce the three principles that the techniques are based on. They are: changing the content of the work to make it more meaningful, setting moderately challenging (realistic) goals that when reached provide a sense of accomplishment, and offering desirable rewards (which can be given or withheld) for desired performance.
