Question description

When you want to build a ship, do not begin by gathering wood, cutting boards, and distributing work, but rather awaken within men the desire for the vast and endless sea.

—Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince (1943)

People around the world are different. They belong to different families and different cultures. Therefore, it is understandable that what motivates one person may not motivate another. As a DBA independent scholar at Walden University, your source of motivation as an employee or student may be different than your classmates’ sources. Previously, you may not have consciously considered what motivates you or those around you. However, considering your personal and your colleagues’ experiences with motivation—along with insight provided by research on motivation and leadership—may help you to better motivate yourself and others. As a global change agent, you might find the motivation theory and supporting theories helpful as you gain insight into this theory and its relevancy to you and others. Perhaps you can begin by asking yourself, “How will I recognize my motivation for developing leadership skills so that board members will evaluate me for an executive leadership role?”

To prepare for this Discussion, consider the scope of motivation theories (e.g., inspirational motivation and the path-goal and expectancy theories) and the various components of motivation. Share with your colleagues how at least three aspects of motivation (i.e., the will to lead, express dominance, and commit to the social good of the organization) are essential in developing leadership skills (Northouse, 2016, pp. 52–53).

By Day 3

Post your analysis of three aspects of motivation (i.e., the will to lead, express dominance, and commit to the social good of the organization) that are essential in developing leadership skills and your personal experience recognizing motivation exhibited by an employee within the workplace. In your analysis, do the following:

  • Describe three aspects of motivation that support leadership skills and an example of how a work colleague, employee, or leader exhibited these aspects of motivation.
  • Explain how each of these aspects of your analysis relates to the motivation and leadership theory.

Be sure to support your work with a minimum of two specific citations from this week’s Learning Resources and one or more additional scholarly sources.

MOTIVATION THEORIES

Introduction
Motivation is the desire to achieve a given performance level or goal that leads to goaldirected behavior. For any person that wants to perform, motivation is essential although it is not
sufficient. This is because; having the knowledge and skills needed to perfume a particular job is
critical and a key determinant of effectiveness. Besides, environmental factors such as sufficient
information, resources, and support are necessary and critical to performance and the
development of effective leadership skills. Research shows that aspects of motivation such as
express dominance, the will to lead and a commitment to the social good of an organization are
also essential in developing critical leadership skills. In line with these, this paper will describe
these aspects of motivation, and the researcher shall explain how various people in their life have
exhibited the aspects of motivation. In addition, the document shall explain how each of the
aspects relates to motivation and leadership theory.
