6 Types of Motivation Explained

July 7, 2013

What makes people do what they do? Why do some people succeed while others fail? The answer just might be motivation. We know that from an early age motivation prompts us to want to learn and exhibit different types of behavior and stimulates us to accomplish new feats of success. As we grow and mature through the different stages of our lives, we hopefully learn what motivates us and what does not.”

The preceding quote is from the latest “DFS Global Learning & Development e-Blast” article, 6 Types of Motivation Explained by Royale Scuderi.

In this May 11, 2012 posting on the Lifehack website, the author offers a simple explanation of the 6 types of motivation.  Understanding how you and those around you are motivated, often differently, can make you a more effective leader.

More from the article:

“The real importance of understanding the different types of motivation is in our ability to determine which form of motivation is the most effective for inspiring the desired behavior in either others or ourselves. None of these styles of motivation is inherently good or bad, the positive or negative outcome is truly determined by the way they are used.”

6 Steps Successful People Take

April 6, 2013

What is so different for successful people? How did they get where they are? Why are you where you are in your life? It’s easier and more comfortable to believe that success just happens to some people. But that couldn’t be further from the truth.”

The preceding quote is from the latest “DFS Learning e-Blast” article, 6 Steps Successful People Take, by Mike Michalowicz.

In this December 14, 2011 post on the Amex Open Forum Blog, the author provides a tantalizingly simple set of principals followed by most successful people.  These ideas are not new – but bear repeating.  If it was so simple, everyone would be successful.  It tales courage and persistence to follow these steps, and it is true – anyone can do it.  Will you?

More from the article:

“Each notably successful person has taken six steps, whether they are financially successful or achieving at a high level in some other way. They didn’t just wake up one day and find that success had been delivered to their doorstep. Quite the opposite: Successful people have worked to get where they are.”
