Week 2 discussion-jgr 210 | JGR 210 – Motivating Teams | Strayer University


This week, you learn about Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. In addition, you look at two ways in which everyone is motivated—intrinsic and extrinsic motivation.

Everyone has needs that they must fulfill. These needs are what motivate people to seek out education and training, a career path, or  hobbies and interests.

Please complete the following:

  • Check out the list of needs on page 32 of your textbook, The Best Team Wins.  Then, choose the top three needs that motivate you. Why do you find these motivating? Are they intrinsic or extrinsic motivators?       
    • The list: Autonomy, Challenge, Creativity, Developing others,  Empathy, Excelling, Excitement, Family, Friendship, Fun, Impact,  Learning, Money, Ownership, Pressure, Prestige, Problem Solving,  Purpose, Recognition, Service, Social Responsibility, Teamwork, Variety.

Be sure to respond to at least one of your classmates’ posts.
