Over the years, humans have evolved in many ways, but some patterns are recurring in the nature of humans and these patterns give us a chance to predict and to divide behavior into set timelines and phases. Similarly, all human relationships can be divided into stages also using some predictable events. Such a prediction of behavior, was invented in the form of a theory, by Professor Charles Berger and Richard Calabrese in 1975 (SUNNAFRANK, 1986). The theory was named the “Uncertainty Reduction Theory” (Hogg). The theory goes on to state that when two individuals begin to interact at first, they have some apprehensions and questions about the other which they normally resolve by asking certain questions.
LEARNING - Learning is the demonstration of gaining new, or altering and strengthening, existing information, practices, aptitudes, qualities, or inclination and may include blending distinctive sorts of data. The capability to learn is controlled by people, creatures and a few machines. Advance about whether has a tendency to take after learning bends. Learning is not obligatory; it is relevant. It doesn 't happen at the same time, yet expands upon and is molded by what we know.
And so I further consider the approaches of choice theory from Glasser (1988) as it draws from both humanist tradition and cognitive theory (Porter, 2000). Glasser asserts that behaviour is determined by the student’s choice, not teacher control (1988). Under choice theory there is potential to influence and create quality teaching and learning experiences through focusing on the students’ needs and the teacher’s ability to practice positive relationship habits such as caring, befriending, trusting and supporting (Glasser, 1998). It is an encouraging approach to call upon in the future as it reminds the teacher to consider their own behaviour first, before responding to the
Motivation is the force that pushes us to do things: It is a result of everyone needs being satisfied so that employees have the inspiration and ability to complete the respective task given. So will employees be motivated and perform to their capability by giving them good welfares, benefits and money? Money makes the world go round, it can be considered as an engine to push human’s limits but peers motivation and intrinsic desire to a good job are the real motivators in today’s workplace. Intrinsic and extrinsic motivation There are two types of motivation, intrinsic or extrinsic.
The acronym VARK stands for visual, aural, read/write, and kinetic learning. It is a sensory model that accumulates a score based on learner preference (Sidhu, n.d.). It was stated that C.S. is a multimodal learner, meaning that he does not have one preferred learning mode. Instead, he benefits from several learning styles, putting the teacher in a unique position. This learner is best served with a variety of teaching modalities.
An orgainisation is based on the management’s philosophy, values, vision and goals. Theses objectives drive the orgainisation, the culture of the orgainisation has an impact on the type of leadership, communication and departmental dynamics. Staff should be aware of this and use it to base their work ethics and motivation on. The outcome should then be job satisfaction nad growth for the individual team members as well as the team as a whole. A leader needs to adapt to situations and use techniques that are inclusive in order to avoid conflict and aids decision-making.
The moderating role of team learning can be explained by the perspectives on socially shared cognition, which is a social process of knowledge acquisition, storage and transfer(Fiske and Taylor, 1991). Team learning improves team competency(Pearce and Ravlin, 1987) and is an important factor in the composition of shared mental model(Van den Bossche et al., 2011), which promotes the communication and collaboration among the members on a heavy workload(Cannon-Bowers and Salas, 2001; Van den Bossche et al., 2011). Team learning helps members adapt to ambiguity, conflict and massive works(Pearsall et al., 2009). Moreover, team learning provides an alternative perspective and insight for the complex issues and could facilitate the coordination among the members(Pearce and Ravlin, 1987; Senge,
(Richards and Rodgers, 2001: 141). Competency based learning is an objective-based learning. It has a number of advantages. It focuses learners, especially on learners ' target needs (necessities) with the application of criterion reference assessment, therefore learning takes place in effective and efficient ways since objectives and materials are based on learners ' need, because of well-defined objectives in course descriptions.” (Drs.
Motivational Improvement Program Organizational efficiency and effectiveness is a necessity as organizations seek to secure their competitive advantage in a global marketplace. As a result, organizations seek ways to improve their products and services and reduce cost. The biggest asset and investment for any organization is human capital, employees. Organizations realize the quality of their products and services depends on their employees ' productivity and performance; therefore, organizations must find ways to motivate their employees. Consequently, they search for and apply research on motivational theories and/or models to help motivate employees.
