Motivation Motivation and Hertzberg’s Theory Motivation is something that you need to get things done. “The want to” to finish something you need to do. Everyone has to have it to some degree or we would not care if we got anything done. The two main things that motivate me the most are responsibility and praise. The more responsibility I am given the more I want to do. For example when I started working at my mom’s real estate office, I just answered the phone. Well mother started giving me little things to do. Before I knew it I am basically running the office. When she saw I could handle the responsibility of the tasks she gave me she would praise me for a job well done. By doing this she made me feel like I was really helping her and it made me want to do more.

Unformatted text preview: Fredric Hertzberg was a psychologist that came up with a motivational theory called Hertzbergs Two Factor Theory. The two factors he talks about are motivation and hygiene.

This in turn makes us feel like we are accomplishing what we set out to do. I am a good example of this theory. Because if I do not feel like I am doing a good job I feel like there is no reason for me to finish it or to do the job at all. In conclusion I believe that we all need to feel like we are doing a good job. Especially someone like me who second guesses everything they do. 2 Motivation 3...
