Using Motivation to Improve Performance 3 Motivation results from the interaction of both conscious and unconscious factors such as the intensity of desire or need, incentive or reward value of the goal and expectations of the individual and their peers. These factors are the reason a person behaves a certain way. An example is my daughter who is a student that spends extra time studying for a test because she wants to get a good grade in class. There are internal and external factors that put the desire and energy in people to continually be great, interested, and committed to a job or to make an effort to attain their goal. Most employees need motivation to feel good and wanted at their workplace. There are many employees that are motivated by money, some are motivated by recognition, and other are motivated by personal growth. Motivation levels within the workplace have a direct impact on employee productivity. Employees who are motivated and excited about their jobs carry out their responsibilities to the best of their ability and production number increases as a result.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
