Is There a Simple Formula for Understanding and Improving Motivation?

The Department of Business Management invites you to a discussion: Is There a Simple Formula for Understanding and Improving Motivation? with Kenn Barrons.

Ideally, we would all be well versed in motivation theory and research to better motivate ourselves and those around us. However, because of the numerous theories that have been proposed, reading and understanding the motivational research literature can be daunting. The purpose of tonight’s event is to offer a new approach aimed at simplifying this complexity. Dr. Kenn Barron, from the Motivation Research Institute at James Madison University, will propose a single motivation formula to help you quickly understand the major sources of motivation and share evidence-based practices that promote each source of motivation. Then, we will discuss how this formula could be applied to better understand and improve motivation in a variety of contexts, such as education and work.
