[Everyone] There are many parallels between the business world and academia. Just like in business, student attitude has a great deal to do with student success. The two recognized components of student learning are ability and will.
See how you can apply these components to your organization in order to increase productivity. You can train to increase ability, but you have to motivate to address the component of will. Maria notes how job satisfaction is an important element to measure employee will.
What motivation techniques do you use to increase job satisfaction? Include business theory as you contribute to class discussions. In this case, start by looking at Maslow's Hierarchy, Herzberg's two factor theory, Alderfer's ERG theory, etc. I know this is more difficult than providing personal examples, but you grow more when you research and use relevant business theory in your responses.
