The Three Forms of Motivation – Frosty Westering

Three forms of Motivation according to Frosty Westering

  1. Fear Based – “The floggings will continue until morale improves.” (p. 98)
    1. Produces quick results but soon loses its effectiveness
    2. Motivates from outside rather than from withing
  2. Incentive Based – “Carrot on the stick”
    1. Produces but eventually mediocrity will set in when people are doing the right things for the wrong reasons (p. 99)
  3. Love Based – Strongest form of motivation; Genuine unselfish love; No fear – Brings out the best in ourselves
