Discussion: Motivation Theory: Supporting and Contrasting Theories WK 4

Discussion: Motivation Theory: Supporting and Contrasting Theories
When you want to build a ship, do not begin by gathering wood, cutting boards, and distributing work, but rather awaken within men the desire for the vast and endless sea.

Antoine de Saint-Exupry, The Little Prince (1943)

People around the world are different. They belong to different families and different cultures. Therefore, it is understandable that what motivates one person may not motivate another. As a DBA independent scholar at Walden University, your source of motivation as an employee or student may be different than your classmates sources. Previously, you may not have consciously considered what motivates you or those around you. However, considering your personal and your colleagues experiences with motivationalong with insight provided by research on motivation and leadershipmay help you to better motivate yourself and others. As a global change agent, you might find the motivation theory and supporting theories helpful as you gain insight into this theory and its relevancy to you and others. Perhaps you can begin by asking yourself, How will I recognize my motivation for developing leadership skills so that board members will evaluate me for an executive leadership role?

To prepare for this Discussion, consider the scope of motivation theories (e.g., inspirational motivation and the path-goal and expectancy theories) and the various components of motivation. Share with your colleagues how at least three aspects of motivation (i.e., the will to lead, express dominance, and commit to the social good of the organization) are essential in developing leadership skills (Northouse, 2019, pp. 53-54).

By Day 3
Post your analysis of three aspects of motivation (i.e., the will to lead, express dominance, and commit to the social good of the organization) that are essential in developing leadership skills and your personal experience recognizing motivation exhibited by an employee within the workplace. In your analysis, do the following:

Describe three aspects of motivation that support leadership skills and an example of how a work colleague, employee, or leader exhibited these aspects of motivation.
Explain how each of these aspects of your analysis relates to the motivation and leadership theory.
Be sure to support your work with a minimum of two specific citations from this weeks Learning Resources and one or more additional scholarly sources.

Refer to the Week 4 Discussion Rubric for specific grading elements and criteria. Your Instructor will use this rubric to assess your work.

Read a selection of your colleagues postings.

By Day 5
Respond to two or more of your colleagues postings in one or more of the following ways:

Offer insight on the strengths and weaknesses of your colleagues analysis.
Compare your analysis of motivation to your colleagues analysis, and explain what the results suggest about the nature of motivation.
Please note that, for each response, you must include a minimum of one appropriately cited scholarly reference.

Return to this Discussion in a few days to read the responses to your initial posting. Note what insights you gained as a result of reading the comments your colleagues made.
