Employee motivation is one of the cornerstones of any successful firm, yet it can be devilishly complex to nurture in a consistent and constructive manner. In The Motivation Toolkit David Kreps distills decades of experience and research to highlight the elements of employee motivation. Kreps begins by walking readers through leading economic and psychological theories of motivation, from the economic theory of incentives to the social psychological theory of self-determination. He then shows how to successfully navigate between these theories.
Kreps challenges managers (and aspiring managers) to think rigorously about their specific organisation, and shares enduring insights into effective leadership and organisational prosperity.
