    DescriptionThis book provides a comprehensive analysis of motivational theory and its application at work. First, the authors set out all the main Motivation Theories in a clear and highly readable format with critical commentary on their relevance. They include leading-edge thinking as well as more traditional theories such as Maslow's 'hierarchy of needs' and Herzberg's 'hygiene factors'. Each theory is carefully indexed to allow for easy referencing. The authors then proceed to look at motivation in a practical context. They cover key applications at organisational, team and individual levels including job design, reward, communication, teamworking, setting objectives and dealing with poor performance. For each, key motivational issues and the relevant theories are discussed.
