01. Affiliative Manager: He is more concerned about his personal popularity rather than promoting his company's goal.
02. The intermediate group: Here the manager sets his goals and try to achieve them. He gives priority to his achievement and recognition.
03. Institutional Managers: These people are interested in power. Their approach is only by way of influencing people around them so that they can get things done. They do not depend on their own individual achievement.
In any team work power of motivation is very important and the success rate among the motivational people is very high.
Researchers have pointed out individuals high in power and in control are more institution-minded.
For a successful manager the following motivational aspects are noteworthy:
02. Managers motivated by personal power may lack discipline to build an institution. But their subordinates will be more loyal to them rather than to the institution.
03. Affiliative manger, who is on good terms with his subordinates is useful to an organization in certain situations. Affiliation alone won't work
04. Managerial style is an important factor. That is expression of their power and approach in a democratic way, not showing any partiality.
05. A successful manager should have good work ethics that will keep morale of his subordinates high.
06. Another important matter is a manger should take more interest in the personal needs of his subordinates, rather than getting things done by his team. This will help develop mutual respect between them.
07. In any matter of dispute or contradiction, a manager should have fair judgement. Giving a biased opinion in a simple conflict of interest in a team is either good for the team or for the organization.
08. Authoritative or coercive methods in dealing with team mates will not work and the result will be zilch.
09. Best managers possess two important traits that act as regulators - greater emotional maturity where there is no room for egotism and secondly democratic coaching managerial skill.
10. So, for a good manager, greater motivational power than affiliation and inhibition is very important.
When managers approach their co-workers with a sense of understanding and motivational power with out arrogance, definitely they can motive the workers to be more productive which is good for an upcoming corporation.
