describe a motivational problem at work
a. Briefly describe the problem situation
b. use a theory of motivation to explain the problem
c. use the theory to describe an intervention/action to change the motivational/behavior.
This ought to be easy for you. Choose any motivational problem: my pet is slackards, who spend the day thinking about outside activities. It could be family, avocations, hobbies, weekends, parties, true loves, and so on. My experience with these folks is that they do not have a sense of ownership of their job. Sometimes they are just slackards.
In my career as a teacher, I saw teachers burn out largely because of unmotivated students. Which theory of motivation -- achievement, recognition, the work itself, responsibility, and advancement -- best fits that problem?
