Critically discuss two motivation theories and their implications for motivating individuals in the work place. Motivation can be described as a process where goals are recognized and choices are made “consciously or not” of how a person dictates the amount of energy they put into achieving a given goal or target. To apply this to the work environment several studies were conducted with a purpose to find the most effective ways to motivate staff in a range of different settings and organisations. This essay is to critically asses Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs and Frederick Taylor 's scientific management motivation theorems and their implications for motivating individuals in the workplace using and applying management and leadership styles, assessing their impact on the factors of motivation in the workplace as well as providing as an in depth study of the theorems.
