Employees working in an organization bring a level of enthusiasm and energy to the work they do in the organization. They are committed and creative in their approach. This energy is crucial for any organizational success, and it is termed as emotional motivation. The factors influencing this energy level can be either intrinsic or extrinsic. In this lesson, you will learn about both intrinsic motivation and extrinsic motivation and how to leverage them. How do you motivate your team to do their best? You give them the tools, trust, and time to make their jobs personal. You provide enough challenge for them to work at facilitating better, but not so hard that they become discouraged. Help them connect with their work and give them a reason to work, which is beyond the paycheck.
