Booklist Review

"Motivation is the fuel for performance. Without motivation, performance suffers." So begins Green's book, which offers a management approach to motivation that he calls the Belief System of Motivation and Performance. Based on the expectancy theory of motivation (a complex mathematical model that states there is a critical connection between motivation and performance), Green's interpretation explains how people determine the extent to which they will work hard and how well they will perform. His approach is based upon linking confidence in the ability to do the job with trust that rewards will come that will bring satisfaction. Using diagrams, stories, and sample scripts, the author provides the structure, process, and guidelines for his Belief System, which requires managers to develop effective communication skills. His consulting experience has taught Green that people are at their best when they have confidence in themselves, trust in their manager, and are satisfied in their work. --Mary Whaley
