Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum, read Chapter 3: Individual Differences, Chapter 4: Cognition and Emotion, and Chapter 5: Motivation from your course textbook.
Select a motivational theory from Chapter 5 (Needs and Process Theories of Motivation) in the textbook that best describes your personal motivation in your career. Select from the following theories:
Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs
Alderfer’s ERG Theory
McClelland’s Manifest Needs Theory
Lawrence & Nohria’s Emotional Drives or Needs Theory
Vroom’s Expectancy Theory
Locke & Latham’s Goal-Setting Theory
Then, address the following:
Why does this theory best fit your style and approach?
Explain why the other theories do not fit your approach to motivation (two to three sentences for each theory will suffice).
How does your theory relate to your personality?
Use three scholarly resources, in addition to the textbook, to support your content.
