Doctors have been complaining about a medical secretary that supports them. There is concern about the quality of her work and attendance, so a supervisor meets with the secretary. During that meeting, the secretary, who is a good performer based upon evaluations, discloses her lack of satisfaction with her job. The work is no longer interesting to her, and she feels that her improvement suggestions are not taken seriously by the doctors.

Please assist with 150 words response to each question.

1. As a manager, it can be difficult to encourage employees toward self-actualization while at the same time respond to pressures for high performance and production.

How can managers achieve a workable balance between these two “responsibilities”?

2. What are some of the characteristics of work itself that you find to be intrinsically motivating (e.g., variety, challenge, decision-making authority, pride of ownership, a sense of progress)?

Thanks

One idea is to have employees believe that they are perceived as competent at the desired skill or task (that there is an expectation for success and achievement is valued).” Do you feel valued as a competent employee in your workplace?
