Why do some people climb Mount Everest and others can barely get off the couch? What drives people to extremes where they stop distinguishing right from wrong? Human mind is extremely powerful and can move mountains - when it is motivated to do so.
There are multiple motivation theories yet one size does not fit all. This course focuses on exploring the different factors that impact motivation - gender, culture, generation as well as personality, experience and perception in context of organizations. The role of the management is to understand these factors so that employees do not feel they need to just do a required minimum but actually want to do the best they can.
