The Relationship of Intrinsic-Extrinsic Motivation and Communication Climate in Organizations.
Krivonos, Paul D.
After reviewing the literature relevant to motivation and perception of communication climate, a study of 65 supervisory-managerial personnel from two large manufacturing companies is reported. Subjects completed an intrinsic/extrinsic motivation scale and a communication-climate questionnaire. Analysis of results indicated partial support for the overall hypothesis that individuals who are intrinsically motivated would perceive the communication climate as being more ideal than would those who were extrinsically motivated. Data relevant to a series of corollary hypotheses and alternative explanations of the results are also discussed. (AA)
