"Top 5 Motivation Theories"

These FREE management resources will help you acquire the skills needed to perform your role effectively.

This eBook describes five contemporary motivation theories, including:

  • McClelland's Human Motivation Theory
  • Sirota's Three-Factor Theory
  • Alderfer's ERG Theory
  • Amabile and Kramer's Progress Theory
  • Handy's Motivation Theory

Each of these theories can give you an insight into what motivates the people in your team and help you to assess which of their needs are being met, and which are not. Overall, these theories suggest that you probably have far more opportunity to improve the morale and productivity of your team than you imagine. This is because most of the factors that increase team motivation are ‘cultural’ rather than monetary and are things that you have direct control over.
