Thank you for your participation in this week’s discussion board forum. I too chose motivation for my posting. Motivation is defined as the process that underlies the direction of behavior in intensity and persistence (Kinicki and Fugate, 2016). In my job, I am faced with day to day tasks that require my full attention. It is often hard to give my full attention when I feel down in the dumps. I oftentimes think of up and quitting my job and doing what I love; however, that is not only irresponsible- but also pretty impractical. While I am still in school, I am a full time student, a full time employee, and a full time wife. It is a challenge when I go into work and …show more content…

Emotion can also be a huge factor that can influence one’s job. My husband often drives me to work, even though we have two vehicles, solely to be able to spend more time with me. However, sometimes this ends in arguments that leave my emotions in an angered or upset state as I’m walking into work. These emotions can also combine with the people I communicate with on a daily basis, and can lead to frustration and make work unbearable. Emotions play a very big role in job satisfaction and in motivating employees. The Two- Factor theory of emotion that was created by Schachter and Singer proposed that the wide variety of emotions is triggered by emotional arousal (Schachter, & Singer, 1979). For example, if you see a man walking up to you at night in a cold empty parking lot, mentally you notice the man. Then your heart begins to race and you start to tremble. Lastly, you recognize that your racing heart is caused by fear; hence you are afraid. This theory was put to the test in 1962, when Schachter and Singer injected epinephrine into 184 male participants. The drug created panic in the participants that were aware of the drug, but not those that were not aware of the

Greta 's older brother has suffered from chronic depression for several years. Unfortunately, Greta has been incorrectly informed by her parents that there is a 40 percent chance she will also suffer from depression. Explain how the availability heuristic, framing, the confirmation bias, and belief perseverance might lead Greta to conclude that she will definitely be a victim of a severe depressive disorder. Heuristic is something that is going to stick with her as she will always remember that she has a chance of getting depression in her life, she will also have the form that she will have it be a 40% chance.
The article, “Cheating report confirms teacher 's suspicions,” examines the Atlanta Public School system’s Georgia state Criterion Reference Competency Test scandal. CNN author, Paul Frysh, discusses former East Lake Elementary school teacher, Julie Rogers-Martin, account of events involving her fellow colleague’s involvement in the artificial inflation of their students’ standardized test scores in attempts to fulfill the requirements necessary for continued federal funding, job security, as well as bonuses. The economic idea that figures prominently in the article is Incentive, particularly the positive aspect of financial rewards and the negative aspect of fraud and depriving the most vulnerable groups of children their right to an education. In an ethical sense, I believe that the economic foundation of Opportunity Cost applies as well
The Power Of Motivation We do things for many reasons but the most common reason is motivation. Motivation is what prompts a person to act in a certain way, or at least develop an inclination for specific behavior. Motivation is not the part that is important it’s what the motivation is, such as love or fear.
Within our lives, we go through many phases of emotion. These emotions can be happy, sad, good, bad, lovely, terrible, etc. However, the emotions we face throughout our life make us who we are today. They shape our character and help us through difficult times. Emotions are a very beautiful thing, however, they also can be destructive.
Emotional Labor: Emotional labor is a new concept which came only three decades ago. The sociologist Arlie Hochschild provided the first definition of Emotional Labor. He stated that, “Emotional Labour is a form of emotion regulation that creates publicly visible facial and bodily display within the workplace.” Emotional Labour or work Emotions are the feelings that an employee is required to display in order to meet his/her job requirements, despite of the fact that the emotions are fake. People working in service industries like - hotel workers, flight attendants, nurse, doctors, call center employees, sales personnel, coach, counselors etc. require emotion labor.
Emotions are what propel you forward to reach your goal, but what also stop you from breaking your limits. They are what weigh into our decisions and help lead us to the choices we forever live with. Not only can they determine what we do, but also when and how we do it. At times they are stronger than others, pulling us forward or throwing us back as if we have absolutely no control. Just like in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, the entire lives of two teenagers led by the emotions that they couldn’t ignore.
In addition, employees who experience more positive emotions at work make greater contributions to organizational effectiveness and, when people are in a good mood, they are more sociable, less aggressive, and better able to recall positive information (Pinder, 1998). Also, those employees who are more positive possess higher confidence, optimism, self-efficacy, likability, and sociability, which in turn, making them more satisfied with their job and increases workplace achievement (Lyubormirsky, King, & Diner, 2005). Happy employees bring their happiness from the office to their home and they also transfer their happiness from their home to the office (Lyubormirsky et. al,
I use the synonymous terms emotion work or emotion management to refer to these same acts done in a private context where they have use value. " (Hochschild 2003, p.7) Lazzarato talks about "immaterial labor, which is defined as the labor that produces the informational and cultural content of the commodity" (Lazzarato 1996, p.p.132). Hardt defines affective labor as work that "produces...social networks, forms of community, biopower" (Hardt 1999,
Motivation is defined as the process that guides, initiates, and maintains goal-oriented behaviours (Cherry, 2015). It comes when a person is willing to sacrifice his own time, money and energy to do well in a particular task. Motivation is an inherent action that provides us impulse to do something in order to achieve our goals. In the movie The Pursuit of Happiness, Chris Gardner who lost almost everything in financial crisis ended up living as homeless with his son. He was jobless and unable to support his son and wife therefore his wife left him.
Motivation refers to the process by which a person’s efforts are energized, directed, and sustained towards attaining a goal. This definition contains three main elements which are energy, direction and persistence. Firstly, energy element is a measure of intensity or drive as how much does the motivated person tried. For direction, it states that the employees` effort that directed toward, and consistent with, target organizational goals of their company. Finally, motivation includes a persistence dimension which persist them in putting effort to achieve the goals.
Motivation is essential for a group as well as an organization. In the eyes of the leader of organization McDonald’s, authorizing and inspiring staff members to do the best in their job and they’re capable of helps create job satisfaction, lowering gross revenue in an industry that has a standing for stimulating its employees. In addition, a glad, stable workforce not just conveys better customer service; it is likewise more compelling at building deals and attracting repeat business. There are five concentrate benefits of employee motivation which Mc Donald’s approached at: 1. Improved Productivity 2.
Although motivating employees can be a challenge, a number of theories about motivation at work can be used as a basis for creating practices, procedures and processes to affect employee
