The job characteristics model1

The Job Characteristics Model

In general, leaders must initiate and develop their social capital by focusing on three aspects:

  • The structural dimension: the overall patterns of relationships in the organization

  • The relational dimension: the nature of connections between individuals in the organization

  • The cognitive dimension: the extent to which employees within a social network share a common perspective or understanding

    High social capital directs high internal motivation leading to high performance and making employees more successful in achieving goals

Mcgregor s theory x y

McGregor’s Theory X & Y

Theory X:

  • Management assumes employees are inherently lazy and will avoid work if they can and that they inherently dislike work.

  • Management believes that workers need to be closely supervised and comprehensive systems of controls developed

  • A hierarchical structure is needed with narrow span of control at each and every level

  • Employees will show little ambition without an enticing incentive program and will avoid responsibility whenever they can

    Theory Y:

  • Management assumes employees may be ambitious and self-motivated and exercise self-control.

  • Managers believe that employees will learn to seek out and accept responsibility and to exercise self-control and self-direction in accomplishing objectives to which they are committed.

  • Given the right conditions, most people will want to do well at work.

  • The satisfaction of doing a good job is a strong motivation.

Mcgregor s theory x y1

McGregor’s Theory X & Y

Theory Y is a process of:

  • Creating opportunities

  • Releasing potential

  • Removing obstacles

  • Encouraging growth

  • Providing guidance

  • “Management by objectives” and not “Management by control”

    The application of Theory Y can be slow, and progress in typically done in small steps including:

  • Decentralization and Delegation

  • Job Enlargement

  • Participation and Consultative Management

  • Performance Appraisal

Exercise and practice routines

Exercise and Practice Routines

  • Form groups of 4- 6 people

  • Each person writes down three things that motivates them in their job and three things that would motivate them even more

  • Present your answers to each other

  • Agree on one factor that would motivate you all even more

  • Class discussion on the groups’ motivation factors
