Motivation Questions 1. How would you use Maslow’s hierarchy (pyramid) as a basis to recommend how to motivate an employee who has already satisfied his social needs? Your response should include a statement of the pyramid level that you think will motivate him and a description of how your recommendation incorporates at least one element of that level. Refer to Exhibit 6-1. Using Maslow’s hierarchy I would recommend you satisfy that employee by satisfying his esteem needs. To satisfy his esteem needs you should reward him for good work and compliment him for work he has done in the past. 2. T / F and Explain: Maslow’s hierarchy would change if the employees were from Mexico or Sweden. Refer to Global Implications or Caveat Emptor in your text. False. Maslow’s hierarchy applies to all human being regardless of cultural or ethnic background. They are human needs for all people. 3. You are a manager, who is responsible for identifying what is satisfying and dissatisfying your employees. Use your knowledge of Herzberg’s two factor theory to create 2 questions that clearly address satisfaction, and 2 questions that clearly address dissatisfaction. Each question should be 1 sentence long. Refer to Exhibit 6-2. Why are motivating factors such as achievement and recognition more important to you in satisfaction than hygiene factors such as salary?

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
