Motivation Misunderstanding

Motivation Misunderstanding | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

According to research out of George Mason University, executives’ erroneous beliefs about what motivates employees are remarkably stable over time. At intervals over 40 years, managers were asked to rank the factors that motivate employees. Their lists emphasize external factors such as compensation, job security, and promotions. But when employees answer for themselves, the lists differ considerably. Employees say they are motivated by inherent factors such as interesting work, being appreciated for making meaningful contributions, and a feeling of being involved in decisions.

11 Signs You Have the Grit You Need to Succeed

11 Signs You Have the Grit You Need to Succeed | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

There are a ton of qualities that can help you succeed, and the more carefully a quality has been studied, the more you know it's worth your time and energy.

Angela Lee Duckworth was teaching seventh grade when she noticed that the material wasn't too advanced for any of her students. They all had the ability to grasp the material if they put in the time and effort. Her highest-performing students weren't those who had the most natural talent; they were the students who had that extra something that motivated them to work harder than everyone else.

Angela grew fascinated by this "extra something" in her students and, since she had a fair amount of it herself, she quit her teaching job so that she could study the concept while obtaining a graduate degree in psychology at the University of Pennsylvania.

Her study, which is ongoing, has already yielded some interesting findings. She's analyzed a bevy of people to whom success is important: students, military personnel, salespeople, and spelling bee contestants, to name a few. Over time, she has come to the conclusion that the majority of successful people all share one critical thing--grit.

Grit is that "extra something" that separates the most successful people from the rest. It's the passion, perseverance, and stamina that we must channel to stick with our dreams until they become a reality.

The Learning Factor's insight:

Grit is as difficult to develop as it is important. Learn how to build this skill and give yourself an edge in life.
