Achievement Motivation

Achievement Motivation

Psychologist David McClelland studied workplace motivation extensively and theorized that workers, as well as their superiors, have needs that influence their performance at work. One of these needs is Achievement Motivation – which can be defined as an individual’s need to meet realistic goals, receive feedback, and experience a sense of accomplishment.

For example, employees who are Achievement-Motivated thrive very well in corporations where they receive regular performance evaluations. They feel energized and satisfied with their jobs because goals are set, they are given positive or negative feedback on past behaviors, and given some type of reward if they performed well.
