From the Gurus of Motivation Theories

This is another installment of my motivation for work series of quotes. I thought that I couldn’t write this without quoting people who gave us the very theories used in psychology and management. Managers and professors base their programs on the works of these gurus. I remember coming across these three people in my studies in college. Burrhus Frederic “B. F.” Skinner is known for introducing the concept of operant conditioning to studies of human behavior, while Frederick Herzberg, the ideas of motivator and hygiene factors that influence job satisfaction. Abraham Maslow is probably the most popular among these people. His “hierarchy of needs” is, I think, th e most used in management even today. But I won’t go into any serious discussion of their theories. I just want to share with you some brief words of wisdom from each of them. Share them, too, on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest.
