Motivation and Career. Coombe Lodge Working Paper. Information Bank Number 1602.
Marsh, D. T.
Intended as a first-aid kit for personnel managers, this working paper is a broad attempt to relate motivation and career, with specific reference to the current career development difficulties facing staff in further and higher education. The first section reviews current knowledge about people's career expectations and perceptions to discover any possible cues for future action. In section 2 attention is focused on a reappraisal of the current concepts about motivation and its application to work. The final section is a reappraisal of the concept of career. A summary attempts to link, in a practical way, the two concepts of motivation and career by examining the potential offered by recently developed ideas and information about the interrelationships among age, its series of issues, and changing abilities. Two appendixes offer tables regarding career perceptions and expectations and materials on four views of man. (YLB)
