Creating a Plan for Positive Influence

Creating a Plan for Positive Influence
My learning team has recently been assigned a large project by the instructor.   For the team to be successful, several issues must be addressed.   First, we must create a plan to increase motivation, satisfaction, and performance.   Second, we discuss the different attitudes, emotions, personalities, and values and show how each difference influences behavior within the team.   The success of the project depends on how each member of the team interacts.
Motivation, Satisfaction, and Performance
      Motivation is the processes that account for an individual’s intensity, direction, and persistence of effort toward attaining a goal (Robbins & Judge, 2007, p. 186).   Available are multiple early theories of motivation including Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, McGregor’s Theory X and Y, and Herzberg’s Two-factor Theory.   Maslow’s theory believed that every person had five basic needs.   If one needs to motivate another, they must understand in which the person stands on the hierarchy.   McGregor believed that manager’s views are based on an assumption and tend to mold his or her employees behavior based on that assumption.   Herzberg’s two-factor theory investigated the wants of individuals of their jobs.   These three theories assisted in the ground work of today’s contemporary theories.
      Each individual of our team has different motivational factors that will assist in the success of the project.   Sharon’s motivation for instance, is accomplishing bigger and better goals.   The contemporary theory of goal setting is a motivational theory that aligns with Sharon’s motivation.   The goal-setting theory allows our team to set specific goals to assist in the enhancement of motivation.   We plan to incorporate the contemporary theory of goal-setting to complete the project successfully.
      The results of the team achieving goals creates personal and team satisfaction....
