Publisher: Profile Books
From the bestselling author of The Tao of Coaching comes a book on how to motivate and inspire others - and yourself! Motivation is much more than just a few words of praise. It is an essential skill which anyone can learn, and with which you can have an indelible, positive impact on yourself and others. Yet most of us are never taught this crucial life skill. In this book, bestselling author Max Landsberg fills that gap, providing simple tools, tips and techniques that really work. One of the key points of the book is, you cannot motivate someone else if you are not motivated yourself. Landsberg examines what it takes to motivate yourself, at work and at home, as the basis for inspiring and motivating those around you.
Motivation, Emotion, and Cognition Integrative Perspectives on Intellectual Functioning and Development

The central argument of this book is that cognition is not the whole story in understanding intellectual functioning and development. To account for inter-individual, intra-individual, and developmental variability in actual intellectual performance, it is necessary to treat cognition, emotion, and motivation as inextricably related. Motivation, Emotion, and Cognition: Integrative Perspectives on Intellectual Functioning and Development: *represents a new direction in theory and research on intellectual functioning and development; *portrays human intelligence as fundamentally constrained by biology and adaptive needs but modulated by social and cultural forces; and *encompasses and integrates a broad range of scientific findings and advances, from cognitive and affective neurosciences to cultural psychology, addressing fundamental issues of individual differences, developmental variability, and cross-cultural differences with respect to intellectual functioning and development. By presenting current knowledge regarding integrated understanding of intellectual functioning and development, this volume promotes exchanges among researchers concerned with provoking new ideas for research and provides educators and other practitioners with a framework that will enrich understanding and guide practice.

Motivation: Theory And Research
Harold F. O'Neil, Michael Drillings
Designed For Professionals And Graduate Students In The Personality/social, Military, And Educational Psychology, And Assessment/evaluation Communities, This Volume Explores The State Of The Art In Motivational Research For Individuals And Teams From Multiple Theoretical Viewpoints As Well As Their Effects In Both Schools And Training Environments. The Great Majority Of Education And Training R&d Is Focused On The Cognitive Dimensions Of Learning, For Instance, The Acquisition And Retention Of Knowledge And Skills. Less Attention Has Been Given In The Literature And In The Design Of Education And Training Itself To Motivational Variables And Their Influence On Performance. As Such, This Book Is Unique In The Following Montage Of Factors: * A Focus On Motivation Of Teams Or Groups As Well As Individuals; * An Examination Of The Impact Of Motivation On Performance (and, Thus, Also On Cognition) Rather Than Only On Motivation Itself; * Research In Training As Well As Educational Settings. The Data Reported Were Collected In Various Venues Including Schools, Laboratories And Field Settings. The Chapter Authors Are The Researchers That, In Many Cases, Have Defined The State Of The Art In Motivation.
Motivation In Public Management The Call Of Public Service

Publisher: Oxford University Press Academic UK
Motivation in Public Management: The Call of Public Service joins a long-standing debate about what drives the behavior of government employees and others who are engaged in the public's business. For many centuries, public service was considered a noble calling and, more recently, a profession. During the latter part of the 20th century, however, many scholars called into question both the reality and desirability of a public service ethic. This book draws upon a substantial and growing body of evidence from across disciplines in the social, behavioral, and natural sciences. It asks and answers key questions about the extent to which behavior is fundamentally self- or other-regarding. To paraphrase James Madison, 'public servants are not angels,' but neither are they self-aggrandizing opportunists. The evidence presented in this volume offers a compelling case that motivation theory should be grounded not only in rational choice models, but altruistic and prosocial perspectives as well. In addition to reviewing evidence from many disciplines, the volume extensively reviews research in public management conducted under the rubric of 'public service motivation'. The volume is a comprehensive guide to history, methodology, empirical research, and institutional and managerial implications of research on public service motivation. As the contributors illustrate, the implications transcend particular sectors or countries.

Publisher: Taylor & Francis
Individuals do not always perform to their full capability on cognitive tasks. When this occurs, the usual explanation is that the individual was not properly motivated. But this begs the important question: How and why does motivation interact with and influence cognitive processing and the control processes that regulate it? What are the underlying mechanisms that govern such interactions? Motivation has been an important component of psychology and neuroscience throughout the history of the field, but has recently been rejuvenated by rapidly accelerating research interest in the nature of motivation-cognition interactions, particularly as they impact control processes and goal-directed behavior. This volume provides an up-to-date snapshot of the state of research in this exciting, expanding area. The contributors to the volume are internationally-renowned researchers that lead the field in conducting groundbreaking studies. Moreover, they represent a variety of research perspectives and traditions: cognitive psychology and neuroscience, animal learning, social, affective, and personality psychology, and development, lifespan, and aging studies. This book summarizes our current state of understanding of the relationship between motivation and cognitive control, and serves as an essential reference for both students and researchers.

Tackling the Motivation Crisis
General, Classroom Management, Educational Psychology, Professional, Career & Trade -> Education -> Curriculum & Instruction, Professional, Career & Trade -> Education -> Classroom Management, Professional, Career & Trade -> Education -> Educational Psychology
Publisher: Association of Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD)
Packed with practical strategies you can use to create a culture of self-motivation in your school!
Teachers use traditional incentive and reward systems with the best of intentions. We're trying to support students' positive behavior and learning. We're hoping to motivate and inspire students to work hard and do well in school. If everyone behaves, we'll have a pizza party. The more books you read, the more stickers you'll receive. On the surface, these systems seem to make sense. They may even seem to work. But in the long term, they do not foster intrinsic motivation or a love or learning. In fact, they often have the opposite effect.
In Tackling the Motivation Crisis: How to Activate Student Learning Without Behavior Charts, Pizza Parties, or Other Hard-to-Quit Incentive Systems, award-winning educator and best-selling author Mike Anderson explains
* The damage done by extrinsic motivation systems and why they are so hard for us to give up.
* What intrinsic motivation looks like and the six high-impact motivators—autonomy, belonging, competence, purpose, fun, and curiosity—that foster it.
* How to teach the self-management and self-motivation skills that can make a difference for kids.
* How to use intrinsic motivation in curricula and instructional strategies, feedback and assessment, and discipline and classroom management.
Ultimately, our job as teachers is not to motivate our students. It's to make sure that our classrooms and schools are places that inspire their intrinsic motivation and allow it to flourish. Anderson shows how you can better do that right away—no matter what grade level or subject area you teach.

Publisher: Springer Nature
This volume covers the current status of research in the neurobiology of motivated behaviors in humans and other animals in healthy condition. This includes consideration of the psychological processes that drive motivated behavior and the anatomical, electrophysiological and neurochemical mechanisms which drive these processes and regulate behavioural output. The volume also includes chapters on pathological disturbances in motivation including apathy, or motivational deficit as well as addictions, the pathological misdirection of motivated behavior. As with the chapters on healthy motivational processes, the chapters on disease provide a comprehensive up to date review of the neurobiological abnormalities that underlie motivation, as determined by studies of patient populations as well as animal models of disease. The book closes with a section on recent developments in treatments for motivational disorders.

Ellen A. Skinner
Publisher: SAGE Publications, Inc. (US)
At every point in the lifespan, individual differences in a sense of control are strong predictors of motivation, coping and success and failure in a wide range of domains. What are the origins of these individual differences, how do they develop and what are the mechanisms by which they exert such an influence on psychological functioning? To answer these questions, this book draws on theories and research covering key control constructs, including self-efficacy, learned helplessness, locus of control and attribution theory. Skinner also considers such issues as: the origins of control in social interaction; environmental features that promote or undermine control; developmental change in the mechanisms by which experience
