The 4 Rs of Motivation

You are leading a project urgently needed by your organization. How can you best motivate your team to meet a demanding schedule? Should you offer bonuses if the team meets a deadline? Not according to Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us (2009). Citing psychological research going back to Harry Harlow’s experiments with rhesus monkeys at the University of Wisconsin in 1949 and Edward Deci’s work with students at Carnegie–Mellon in 1969, Pink argues that “extrinsic” rewards—bananas or money—depress problem–solving performance. He believes that what most motivates people at work are the “intrinsic” rewards of mastering a task that engages them.

If it’s not wise to promise bonuses, what other motivational tools do you have?

Before you now decide you are better off not trying to motivate your team, let’s consider the proposition that Pink’s thesis fits some people in some contexts, but not others. This is what I’ve observed over 50 years of studying motivation, starting with the research on concept formation for my honors thesis at Harvard. In that study, I divided a group of students into those who scored high on a questionnaire measuring test anxiety and those who scored low. The students were then randomely placed in groups;some groups were promised rewards for correctly completing a task and others were not. The result: the anxious students did better at problem solving when there were no rewards, but those with low anxiety did better when stimulated by the possibility of gaining a reward. The pressure seemed to motivate them.

Michael Maccoby apresenta os quatro aspectos que geram motivação (4 R's): Responsabilidade (Responsability), Relationships (Relações), Prémios (Rewards) e Razões (Reasons).

Sharrock's curator insight, May 1, 2014 11:04 AM

He states there is a mix of extrinsic and intrinsic rewards: "mix of four Rs: Responsibilities, Relationships, Rewards, Reasons". Maccoby's paragraph on responsibilities focuses on the intrinsics--"People are motivated when their responsibilities are meaningful and engage their abilities and values." Meaning is something personal, ie intrinsic. He also discussed personal challenges when he said, "Craftsmen are motivated by the challenge to produce high–quality products." I liken this to an artist's aesthetics for creating art. 
In his section on "Relationships", I wonder if the quality of a relationship is an extrinsic reward/acknowledgement or intrinsic or a mixture of both. 
In the part about "Rewards", he does the most exploration of extrinsic rewards, namely about "pay", but he also states, "However, Jönsson finds that 80–85 percent of people who receive recognition for a job well done are satisfied even if it is not monetary, compared to 45–50 percent of those who are not recognized for their work." Which is along the lines of what I was saying about acknowledgements. They are more highly valued, but still extrinsic. 
Finally, in his section "Reasons", Maccoby notes, "Jönsson reports that Chinese workers are especially motivated because they have a sense that they work not only for themselves, but also for their country. They feel proud of being part of a winning team that is building a powerful economy. According to Jönsson, in China more than in the West, workers are interested in and aware of their company’s vision, and they see their own work in this larger context." This again is mixing intrinsics and extrinsics.

The puzzle of motivation

The puzzle of motivation | Motivação | Scoop.it
Career analyst Dan Pink examines the puzzle of motivation, starting with a fact that social scientists know but most managers don't: Traditional rewards aren't always as effective as we think. Listen for illuminating stories -- and maybe, a way forward.
Sofia Cunha's insight:

Uma apresentação, com base no seu livro  Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us, cativante, surpreendente e eficaz sobre a motivação.

Daniel H. Pink, visto por muitos como uma referência no mundo da Gestão e do Comportamento, procura sublinhar que as recompensas tradicionais ou monetárias nem sempre são tão eficazes como pretendido... O tom incisivo está patente na sua versão Twitter, onde defende que "As cenouras e os chicotes são coisas do século passado. Drive diz que precisamos é de autonomia, mestria e sentido".

Is Trust the Answer to Employee Motivation?

Daniel Watson's curator insight, November 28, 2013 9:57 PM

 

Most small businesses that employ staff, find that the level of motivation in individuals can vary remarkably, and even for individuals their motivation levels can rise or fall dramatically over time.

 

Sometimes it is hard for business owners to understand what motivates or demotivates their employees, and given the complex science behind motivational theory, it is not surprising that articles on the subject can be very weighty and at times incomprehensible.

 

This excellent article, suggests that trust is the key factor in determining staff motivation, and it provides a simple infographic that very neatly sums up the whole subject to allow a better understanding of the basics of employee motivation.
