MOTIVATION | Power of Goal Setting & Positive Reinforcement

How can a manager combine the powers of goal setting and positive reinforcement to create a highly motivational work environment for workers with high needs for achievement?


  1. A person with a high need for achievement likes moderately challenging goals and performance feedback.

    Participation of both manager and subordinate in goal setting offers an opportunity to choose goals to which the subordinate will respond, and which also will serve the organization.

    Furthermore, through goal setting the manager and individual subordinates can identify performance standards or targets.

    Progress toward these targets can be positively reinforced by the manager. Such reinforcements can serve as indicators of progress to someone with a high need for achievement, thus responding to their desire for performance feedback.

  2. Sometimes it can be very difficult for people who are leaders to stay motivated and focused in their careers and lives, getting a bit of help is a good thing.
