Motivation series: Theories of motivation

How does motivation work? Where does it come from? And how can leaders build and manage it?

Last week on Coffee Time, we talked theories of motivation with real applications for managing, maintaining, and building motivation in yourself and team.

We talked about:

  • Can motivation be built?
  • How can we maintain motivation in challenging times? and 
  • How can leaders keep teams on the same page?

About Pieta Blakely

I help mission-based organizations measure their impact so that they can do what they do well. I started my nonprofit career as a teacher in workforce development and adult basic education. It was important work and I was worried that we didn’t really know if we were doing it well. In the process of trying to answer that question, I got a Masters in Education and a PhD in Social Policy, and became an evaluator.
