Programme Content/Outcomes
For many years philosophers, theorists, and psychologists have proposed models and theories to explain the subject of motivation. However, there are a few assumptions we need to make before we start this unit:
– Motivation tends to be a very personal thing
– People’s motivation can vary depending on personal circumstances.

The role of a manager is to create an environment in which people are motivated to continuously improve their performance, and in this unit we will explore several tools and approaches that can be used to do this.


To develop knowledge and understanding of how to motivate to improve performance as required by a practising or potential leader/manager at ILM Level 3.

• Define the term ‘motivation’

• Describe a recognised theory of motivation
• Describe ways in which knowledge of a theory of motivation can be used to improve performance in the workplace
