Content TheoryIn addition to focusing on regions of need, it provides incentives proportional to the level of need(Francis, 2018). It is considered to be one of the first theories of motivation. In their separatetheories of motivation, several academics like Abraham Maslow, Frederick Herzberg, and DavidMcClelland contributed to creating these principles in the first place.Maslow’s Hierarchy of NeedsFigure 1:Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs
11 |P a g eSource:simplypsychology.org (2019)During the 1940s and 1950s, this was one of the most often discussed and widely heldviewpoints (Francis, 2018). Aristotle's theory of hierarchy was originally proposed in 1943 byAmerican psychologist Abraham Maslow. The following are the five stages of a need:Psychological NeedsSafety NeedsSocial NeedsSelf-Esteem NeedsSelf-Actualization NeedsManagement Assumptions (Theory X and Theory Y)Douglas McGregor used the workplace to exemplify Maslow's hierarchy of needs. McGregorconcluded that each director generated assumptions about their employees and used theseassumptions to shape their management style based on his or her research and interview findings.In his opinion, management was separated into two distinct areas, each of which was equallyimportant (Alagas, 2018). However, he elected to keep Theory X, the first of his two categories,in place. He concluded that the ordinary person despises work and will do everything andeverything in his or her power to avoid doing it. It is assumed in the Theory Y notion that thephrases "working" and "resting" or "playing" are synonyms. Increasing the workforce'sproductivity only through the fear of punishment and the imposition of external command ischallenging. Self-discipline and self-direction are traits that are more prevalent in successfulindividuals.McClellands Need for Achievement, Affiliation and PowerAccording to McClelland's theory, every human person contains at least these three essentialrequirements. As he argues in his thesis, high achievers are driven by a desire to be successfuland a desire for power and belonging to a greater or lesser extent (Jambulingam, 2018). As aresult, people motivated by a strong desire to succeed are more likely to be self-disciplined thanothers. Moreover, by structuring job contexts and settings to maximize the motivationaladvantages of people who have a strong want for success, he claims that employers might beginby employing people who have a high demand for accomplishment.
