  • BF Skinner was an american psychologist that introduced a theory called radical behaviorism that examined the relationship between motiviation and reinforcement. Radical behaviorism seeks to understand behavior as a function of environmental histories of reinforcing consequences

    programmed learning,  educational technique characterized by self-paced, self-administered instruction presented in logical sequence and with much repetition of concepts…….THE KEY IS REINFORCEMENT. THE PROPER REINFORCEMENT CAN HIGHLY MOTIVATE EMPLOYEES.
  • THE BIGGEST IS LACK OF RECOGNITION which we will touch on again in just a bit.

    REWARDS ARE NOT WHAY EMPLOYEES NEED.
    Example: if you give someone a gift certificate to an ice cream parlor and they are lactose intolerant. This is a Very basic example.
