All the managers consider that the motivation is one of the most important things to reach in a team, in a company. It’s not new. But you have to understand something: there are two kind of motivations, and both should be addressed, not only one. The ideal worker of any manager is not only a motivated worker, but an engaged worker.
The difficulty is that people are motivated in different ways: some people need encouragement, some other need more, they need to enjoy the activity. It’s why it’s very important to understand well the different types of motivation.
