PSYC305 Motivation and Leadership
Week 4 Discussion
Initial Post Instructions
For the initial post, respond to one of the following options:
Option 1: Please take a look at the bulleted needs described on page 286: survival, security, belonging, respect, and fulfillment. Then, describe how your organization meets those needs, and explain what they could do differently to better meet the fulfillment needs.
Option 2: To kick off this discussion, remember what we were discussing this week about happy employees. Our lecture talked about making employees number one. How prevalent do you find this to be? Do you think it is common? Why or why not? Is it a lack of knowledge, ignorance, or arrogance? You would think that this concept was easy to understand. Do you think today's managers and leaders forgot to read the handbook on effective employee management?
Follow-Up Post Instructions
Respond to at least two peers or one peer and the instructor. If possible, respond to one peer who chose the option different from the one you chose. Further the dialogue by providing more information and clarification.
