Human Behavior and Performance
Motivation theorists today acknowledge that human behavior and performance are multiply determined and that there is no single theory that can explain all the complexities of human motivation. Many theorists consider biological, psychological, emotional, and environmental sources of human motivation and recognize that “why we do what we do” is the result of the interplay of these several sources.
