    This video has been included to help demonstrate the power of motivation and what great things can be done when people are motivated to empower others to make changes. This video reminded me that people are motivated by different things and for different reasons. For example what is motivating the client may be very different than what is motivating the worker. The client in this example may be motivated by needing to get their basic needs met however the worker may be motivated by self-actualization or the need for achievement.

Praise, pay increases, bonuses, and promotions are a few examples of extrinsic rewards. The traditional method of motivating employees has been used extrinsic motivation. In order to better understand how to motivate employees you must first understand how motivation works. According to Abraham Maslow, people are motivated by unmet needs. Maslow’s hierarchy of needs:
