he excitement of being a new manager has started to wear off. Your boss is pressuring you because you need your team to work faster. You need to find a way to motivate them! Based on your psychology class, you realize that you have two choices.
CHOICE 1 – Praise. You could focus on those who do really well and praise them for their success. There will be a bulletin board that highlights those employees with the best performance.
CHOICE 2 – Pay. For those employees who produce more ,they get paid more. The top 5% get a big raise.
