Motivation in theory – Frederick Herzberg two factor theory

I agree with Mr. Frederick Herzberg’s two factor theory 100% and without any shadow of a doubt. There is no way any small business or large company can succeed, grow and continue prosperity in the future without the two factors Herzberg theorized. The first of two factors believed by Herzberg is Hygiene factors; Hygiene factors are based on the need for a business to avoid unpleasantness at work. If these factors are considered inadequate by employees, then they can cause dissatisfaction with work. Hygiene factors include company policy and administration, wages, salaries, and other financial remuneration, quality of supervision, quality of inter-personal relations, working conditions, and feelings of job security.
The second factor believed by Herzberg is Motivator factors. Motivator factors are based on an individual's need for personal growth. When they exist, motivator factors actively create job satisfaction. If they are effective, then they can motivate an individual to achieve above-average performance and effort. Motivator factors are status, opportunity for advancement, gaining recognition, responsibility, challenging and or stimulating work, and a sense of personal achievement & personal growth in a job.
The need for a business to run efficiently is most importantly due to the whole Hygiene factor and the whole Motivator factor. I have not yet read a better theory on workplace motivation. Each and every other theory I’ve read: ERG theory by Clayton P. Alderfer in 1969, Goal setting theory by Edwin A. Locke in the mid-1960s, the Acquired Needs Theory by David McClelland in 1962$$I made 20 copies of my Motivation Concepts…...

...Concept Comparison and Analysis Jo Ann Tyler Green NUR/513 10/15/2012 Michelle Johnson Concept Comparison and Analysis The concept, quality of life, as used in nursing theories, is presented in a historically situated context. This approach to concept analysis was selected to illuminate the subjective, contextual, and fluid nature of the concept. Based on this review, quality of life is defined as an intangible, subjective perception of one’s lived experience. From a review of Peplau’s, Rogers’, Leininger’s, King’s, and Parse’s conceptualizations of quality of life, it is concluded that it may be viable to replace health with quality of life as a meta-paradigm concept for nursing. There are numerous definitions of quality of life that exist. Described as experiences of life (Meeberg, 1993), satisfaction with life, and well-being (Ferrans, 1996; Haas, 1999; (Meeberg, 1993), the definition of quality of life lacks precision and specificity. Consistency is important because “differences in meaning can lead to profound differences in outcomes for research, clinical practice, and allocation of health care resources” (Ferrans, 1996, p. 294). Nurses have made important contributions to understanding this concept. The quality of life has been examined in groups of people experiencing a particular illness or health deficit, such as cancer or heart disease (C. R. King, 1998). Quality of life concept analyses have focused on existential aspects of the concept. However,......

...Running head: MOTIVATION CONCEPT ANALYSIS Motivation Concept Analysis Individuals are motivated by many factors that drive them to the need to fulfill their goals, expectations and desires. In the workplace, I’ve witnessed, including evaluating my own driven behaviors that acquire a driven mental philosophy, we strive to meet not only our own expectations, but the expectation of our peers or the outside world. This way of thinking can lead to a very competitive working environment that can either lead to an agreeable or disagreeable environment. Emelander (2009) states that motivation within the workplace will rely on four distinctive motives, such as the drive to acquire and achieve expectations, drive to bond and be involved in like minded and/or desirable social groups, drive to learn and comprehend opportunities and challenges and the drive to defend yourself and that these “four drive theory is balance between and among drives so they can compliment and regulate each other. For this reason, I chose Sigmund Freud’s theory of Drive. I chose the theory as I have seen many depictions of driven behaviors. As we have the need to eat, breath, sleep and etcetera, we live throughout life needing to progress, succeed, to rise above our expectations and desires. According to Sigmund Freud’s Drive theory, the theory describes the motivation elements of driven behavior as “that all behavior was motivated and that the purpose of behavior was to serve the satisfaction of need,”...

...preventable errors (1999). The purpose of this paper is to respond to a peer reviewed concept analysis article, describing the method of analysis, the steps of the process, results for each step and to apply the concept to a practice situation. Concept Analysis The Electronic Health Record (EHR) improves the exchange of patient data, accuracy, and quality of patient care. Poor communication and technology can impede a positive outcome for the patient. A core competence of nursing is documentation of patient’s response to nursing interventions and effectively communicating the care given. In the article Concept Analysis of Similarity Applied to Nursing Diagnoses: Implications for Educators the author uses the Walker and Avant concept analysis of similarity. In nursing, concept analysis clarifies unclear concepts and gives a mean to common understanding within nursing practice. “The purpose of a concept analysis is to describe the concept well enough so that defining characteristics can be determined and used to distinguish “likeness or unlikeness” between concepts” (Walker & Avant, 2005, p. 64). Wilson developed an 11 step process in 1963 that defined the concepts to improve communication and comprehension of the meanings of terms in scientific use (McEwen & Willis, 2011, p.53). Numerous nurses have used Wilson’s process to build their own techniques, methods and strategies for concept development. Walker and Avant interpreted Wilson’s process to make it clear......

...Concept Analysis Assignment Grand Canyon University Theoretical Foundations for Nursing Roles and Practice NUR 502 Ms. Maria Mendez June 13, 2013 Concept Analysis Assignment Today’s nursing profession encompasses a variety of specialties and disciplines that demonstrate a wide range of phenomena. According to McEwin and Willis, in clinical practice, those phenomenon that are frequently seen aid advanced practice nurses in developing interventions and clinical protocols because they are said to be stable and reliable components of the practical nursing experience (McEwin & Willis, 2011, p. 47). The observed phenomena may or may not have had research studies associated with them in the past to concretely define them, and therefore the notion of concept development and analysis arose to clarify the meanings of the phenomena encountered in one’s practical setting. McEwin and Ellis define concepts as “terms that refer to phenomena that occur in nature and thought” (McEwin & Willis, 2011, p. 47). Furthermore, concepts can be concrete, nonconcrete, variable, and non-variable in manner and described in words or phrases. Concept analysis is utilized to clarify vague concepts in nursing that may be overused and unclear and also to promote a mutual understanding amongst colleagues (Falan, 2010). For the purpose of this assignment, an article found in the Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences regarding the concept of abuse in healthcare was selected for concept......

Zappos Concept of Motivation

...Discuss the approach used by Zappos. Why is the approach not used very often? What are the challenges and the benefits? Zappos was acquired by Amazon in 2009. What organizational changes do you believe occurred due to the acquisition and would continue to occur over time? Discuss the concept of motivation and Zappos. Would Zappos be a motivating place to work? Why? Why not? Your analysis must include supporting evidence. Zappos has a very unique approach to motivating its employees, which is spearheaded by its CEO Tony Hsieh. This approach includes a study of happiness, respect, and the company is centered on the idea of “a corporate culture of caring a priority”. Zappos is able to accomplish this using David McClelland’s acquired-needs theory; they motivate employees by taking a strong interest in each employee. This allows each of their employees room to grow, and if they employees see and feel this way then it is reflected in their performance and in how they treat each of their customers. This approach is very difficult to emulate and not used very often because a company has to invest a lot of time training, and trust in each of their employees to make this successful. This approach is a product of a couple of things: First, the CEO cares about his employees. This is made possible, largely because the company only employs around 1,500 people, and they are all located in a central location. Second, it is extremely difficult to measure the value of happiness.......

...Management Focusing on Acute Pain: A Multidisciplinary Concept Analysis The concept of managing acute pain is extremely significant to nursing as pain is one of the most common problems for which patients seek out health care resources. Pain is a complex and abstract concept that encompasses sensory, emotional, psychological, social, and spiritual perceptions of pain that may occur in combination with physical pain. Pain is difficult to describe and often hard to measure; although, most healthcare providers agree that pain is subjective and is to be measured qualitatively and quantitatively as the patient perceives its intensity. Pain can affect the quality of life of the individual by impacting them physically, emotionally, and financially. Pain can also impact the family and support systems. The treatment of pain and the loss of income due to pain increases the costs for health care, the individual, and the population. Analyzing and clarifying the concept of managing acute pain can increase the healthcare provider’s knowledge of acute pain management, define the concept of managing acute pain, and expand the understanding of the concept of managing acute pain. The aim of this analysis is to clarify the defining attributes of managing acute pain, identify antecedents that influence the perception of pain and the possible consequences of acute pain. Review of Literature To increase the understanding of the concept of managing acute pain, it is important to explore the......

Katherine Kolcaba’s Comfort Theory will be used. Walker and Avant’s method for concept analysis will be used. The first step is to select a concept, which is comfort. The next step is determining the purpose of the analysis. The purpose is to define what comfort means and what comfort measures are and how they are used in nursing. The third step is to identify the uses of the concept of comfort. This includes definitions of term comfort and a literature search. The fourth step is to determine the defining attributes of comfort. This allows for insight into the concept and includes the characteristics of comfort. Comfort can mean many things to many people. Comfort can be caring words, caring touch, warm blankets, pain relief or encouragement. The fifth step is a model case or a real life example of the concept that includes the attributes of the concept and a borderline and related case. The sixth step is to identify consequences and antecedents and consequences. The final step is to define empirical referents or measurable ways to show the occurrence of comfort. Purpose The concept of comfort is used frequently in nursing practice; however, it is not always clearly defined. It is a basic value of nursing care and interventions and is frequently described as comfort measures. A basic understanding...

...Comfort: Concept Analysis Concept analysis deals with the careful job of guiding clearness to the meaning of concepts used in science, according to McEwen, M., & Wills, E. (2010) in Nursing Theories and Nursing Practice. This paper will analyze the concept of comfort which comes from Katarine Kolcaba’s Comfort theory. Comfort is the state that is experienced automatically by receivers of comfort interventions. It involves the holistic experience of being strengthened through having comfort needs addressed as defined by McEwen and Wills (2010). Comfort is a key concept and central value of nursing. As stated by Tutton, E., & Seers, K. (2003), An exploration of the concept of comfort, comfort is defined as a state, linked to outcomes such as ease, well-being and satisfaction. The steps used to perform this concept analysis on comfort come from the Walker and Avant’s steps of concept analysis. These steps are as follows: 1) select a concept; 2) determine the purposes of the analysis; 3) identify all uses of the concept; 4) define attributes; 5) identify a model case of the concept; 6) identify consequences of the concept; and 7) define empirical references of the concept (Walker & Avant, 2010). Each one of these steps will be discussed throughout this paper along with providing why comfort is necessary to providing comfort in different ways. Purpose of Concept Analysis Comfort is a meaningful need during a person’s life span that should be seen as an essential part of......

...Running Head: MOTIVATION CONCEPTS ANALYSIS Motivation Concepts Analysis Name Human Motivation PSY 320 Faculty Date Introduction on motivational concepts Motivation is comprised of at least 3 components: direction, effort and persistence. Additional factors to motivation are intrinsic: “self generated factors such as responsibility, skills and abilities, interest, opportunities for career advancement and extrinsic: things that motivate an individual such as rewards, promotional opportunities or punishment.” (The Manager, 2007) According to the text, Understanding Motivation and Emotion by Reeve, “motivation is the study of the processes that provide behavior with energy and direction.” (Reeve, 2001) Describe how the theory of intrinsic motivation would and would not be applicable if applied to two or more workplace situations drawn from personal experience Some types of intrinsic motivation for employees are: challenge, interest, learning, meaning, purpose and creative flow. Intrinsic motivation is self generated and can be more effective when an individual has a general interest in something that has appeal to the individual. Intrinsic motivation requires a manager to engage an individual in a task and inform them of the benefits and impact on the employee.

...Concept Analysis Response Concept Analysis Response In the article, Overcoming: A concept analysis, the authors evaluate the process involved in combating conditions that may be challenging or addictive within the nursing framework. In order to accomplish the task, the authors first define the concept before undertaking a systematic analysis using the Walker and Avant method of concept analysis (Brush, Kirk, Gultekin, & Baiardi, 2011). In nursing, the professionals often have to understand the concept of overcoming as they encounter numerous health and social problems among patients that require overcoming. The assessment studies the conceptual makeup of overcoming and how if applied well can help alleviate conditions affecting patients. Method of analysis The Walker and Avant method of conceptual analysis was used in this assessment. Under each step. The method is considered to be the most effective and influential method of concept analysis in nursing science (Fitzpatrick & Kazer, 2011). The Walker and Avant concept analysis method involves eight concise steps in assessing a concept; selecting a concept, determining the aims/ purpose of the analysis, identifying all uses of the concept, determining the defining attributes, constructing a model case, constructing additional cases, identifying antecedents and consequences, and defining empirical referents (McEwen & Wills, 2014).

Motivations definition is, “The act or an instance of motivating, the state or condition of being motivated, and something that motivates; inducement; incentive (Motivation. (2012). In Dictionary. Retrieved from http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/motivation?s=t). A grand theory explains the full range of a motivated action. The will motivates action and the love of money is the root of all evil identifies a cause that explains a phenomenon. Throughout my paper the drive theory will describe two or more workplace situations and how the drive theory would or would not be applicable if applied to those workplace situations drawn from my personal experience. I will also assess the need to develop and create new theoretical models of motivation in today’s changing work environment. Sigmund Freud and Clark Hull’s Drive Theory Two drive theories learned Sigmund’s drive theory and Clark’s drive theory. The first drive theory, created by Sigmund Freud, believed all behavior and the purpose of behavior serves the satisfaction of bodily needs. Sigmund’s drive theory, summarized by four components; aim, source, object, and impetus. The drives source rooted in a bodily deficit than that bodily deficit became a psychological drive once it reached a level of urgency. Drive had an impetus force that passes the aim of satisfaction. To accomplish this aim of satisfaction, anxiety......
