  • "Motivation and Performance While it is important, motivation alone does not dictate all of a person’s behaviour. A person’s ability clearly also matters, and so do factors like the resources a person is given to do his or her job. Successful work performance can arise from a variety of motives. Two people doing similar jobs may both be successful but for very different motives. For example, one salesperson may be motivated by the commission earned on sales, while another may be more concerned about rising to the challenge of meeting sales targets, perhaps for his or her own satisfaction, or perhaps because of a desire to please the boss. In most workplaces, incentive and performance management systems reward some aspects of work behaviour more than others. Also, different behaviours may be rewarded in different ways, and particular ways may suit some people better than others." Source and further information:
