Leadership and Change DB3
Post an answer to one of this week’s discussion board questions. Choose a question that has not been answered, until every question has been answered. If every question has been answered, then you may choose a question that has already been answered once before. If two other students have already posted answers to a question, then you must choose a different question. This limitation does not apply to your response to another student’s post. You may respond to any student’s post that is interesting to you no matter how many people have already responded. You are required to read all student posts and responses, but only respond to one answer.
Answers and responses should be substantial for full credit. Both writing quality and the content of your answers are important. Answers should have at least three paragraphs (15 sentences) and responses must be at least two complete paragraphs (10 sentences). Your response must add new information to the discussion. Use complete sentences, avoid unexplained lists, and avoid slang. Use a professional writing style at all times.
Remember to include at the top of your posting, the chapter, question number, and the text of the question you chose. Then include the page number(s) in the textbook where you found information about your question. Just to make this a little easier, you do not need to include APA style citations or references in your discuss board. You may use personal experiences, internet sites, journal articles, or books to help with your answer. You may not copy and paste answers or responses from sources. Answers and responses must be written by you. Please put your name at the bottom of each answer and response to help me keep the scores straight.
The assignment: Post one answer to a question of your choice below (the question may have multiple parts, so answer all parts), and write one response to another student’s answer. Choose a question that has not already been answered by another student. Write your response to another student rather than answering a second question. You must label your answer as “ANSWER” and your response as a “RESPONSE.” If you wish to make an additional comment (more than one response), please label these posts as a “COMMENT.”

response to this peer’s discussion:
Question 1, Chapter 9
- Differentiate between motivation, performance, and effectiveness. Discuss the relationship between the three concepts.
Motivation is defined in many ways. It is the reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way. Motivation is also defined as the general desire or willingness of someone to do something. As stated in the book, most people probably think of motivation as dealing with choices about what we do and how much effort we put into doing it. Most researchers define motivation as anything that provides direction, intensity, and persistence to behavior.
Performance concerns behaviors directed toward the organization’s mission or goals or the products and services resulting from those behaviors. It is the action or process of carrying out or accomplishing an action, task, or function. Performance is affected by a variety of factors. Intelligence, skill, and the availability of key resources can affect a follower’s behavior in accomplishing organizational goals independently of that person’s level of motivation. Therefore, an adequate level of motivation may be a necessary but insufficient condition of effective performance.
Effectiveness involves making judgments about the adequacy of behavior with respect to certain criteria such as work group or organizational goals. It is also defined as the degree to which something is successful in producing a desired result. The book gives a good example of effectiveness and performance. It describes Ang Lee spending several years creating the movie Life of Pi. The behaviors he exhibited in getting the film constitute performance and the revenues generated and Academy Awards won by the movie indicate his effectiveness as a movie director.
