I've long wanted to put together a motivation book -- I get emails and comments from readers every day in need of motivation to reach a goal, to stay focused, to exercise, to be productive, to just get up off their butts and do something. But I wanted to add something, add value greater than I already offer on Zen Habits. And so I turned to Eric Hamm of the Motivate Thyself blog, and found the perfect partner for this book. Eric writes about motivation all the time -- it's the lifeblood of his blog, and what he lives every day. He knows motivation as well as I do. The two of us have accomplished a lot, working for others and working for ourselves. We've had plenty of failures, and through these failures have learned tons about motivation, and about ourselves. It's from these failures that we've gathered the attitudes and methods that actually work, that have given us the motivation needed to achieve our goals. It's our hope that we'll pass on some of this practical advice to you, and that you'll go on to use it to achieve great things yourself. Even if you've already achieved great things, at the very least I know this book will serve as a basic reminder and give you a little shove when you need it. I recommend using this book like this: read it in little bits, and put them into action. And when you need a bit of motivation, pull it up and read some more, and then get your butt into action again. Good luck, my friends, and may all your dreams become reality!

The Oxford Handbook of Work Engagement Motivation and Self Determination Theory

Such a dynamic gives rise to an organismic-dialectic meta-theory that is used to guide subsequent theorizing. At the core of SDT is the proposal of three basic psychological needs for (1) autonomy, (2) competence, and (3) relatedness.

Self-determination theory is a theory of human motivation that is being increasingly used by organizations to make strategic HR decisions and train managers. It argues for a focus on the quality of workers' motivation over quantity. Motivation that is based on meaning and interest is showed to be superior to motivation that is based on pressure and rewards. Work environments that make workers feel competent, autonomous, and related to others foster the right type of motivation, goals, and work values. The Oxford Handbook of Work Motivation, Engagement, and Self-Determination Theory aims to give current and future organizational researchers ideas for future research using self-determination theory as a framework, and to give practitioners ideas on how to adjust their programs and practices using self-determination theory principles. The book brings together self-determination theory experts and organizational psychology experts to talk about past and future applications of the theory to the field of organizational psychology. The book covers a wide range of topics, including: how to bring about commitment, engagement, and passion in the workplace; how to manage stress, health, emotions and violence at work; how to encourage safe and sustainable behavior in organizations; how factors like attachment styles, self-esteem, person-environment fit, job design, leadership, compensation, and training affect work motivation; and how work-related values and goals are forged by the work environment and affect work outcomes.

The Routledge International Handbook of Social Psychology of the Classroom presents the first comprehensive and integrated compilation of theory and research on topics related to the social cohesion of the classroom. Many of these topics have been studied independently; for example, motivation, self-concept, class management, class climate, and teacher expectations are generally studied separately by different groups of researchers. This handbook brings the evidence from different fields in social psychological classroom research together in one place for the first time to explore how these topics relate and how each factor influences students and their learning. With chapters by established international leaders in their fields, as well as emerging new talent, this handbook offers cutting edge research and surveys the state of the art in the social psychology of the classroom. Major areas covered include: Motivation Belief, self-concept, and personality Emotional engagement Teacher–student relationships Teacher expectation Classroom management Culture and identity The Routledge International Handbook of Social Psychology of the Classroom provides a review of current theories related to the social psychology of the classroom, including how these theories apply to classrooms and learners. Current evidence clearly shows that areas explored by social psychology – and brought together for the first time in this volume – can have a very significant impact on classroom learning and student achievement (J. Hattie, Visible Learning: A Synthesis of over 800 Meta-Analyses Relating to Achievement, Routledge 2009). This handbook is a must for all academics whose research relates to the social psychology of the classroom. It is also an invaluable resource for teachers and teacher education students who want to understand why they are effective instructors and yet still encounter students in their classes who are not responding as expected.

The much anticipated practical educational manual for General Practice (GP) trainers, programme directors, and other teachers and educators in primary care has finally arrived. This extensive, full-colour guide is written by a select group of hands-on educators who are passionate and knowledgeable. The book captures their wisdom and vast experience in an accessible and practical way.

We are sure that GP appraisers, Foundation Year trainers and other medical/nursing student educators will find the detailed comprehensive explorations inspirational. Beautifully presented, the chapters cover a wide educational framework employing a variety of presentational methods such as flowcharts, diagrams, conversational pieces, scenarios and anecdotes. Each chapter has a corresponding webpage containing over 300 additional resources - providing practical tools as well as additional reading material. This book was awarded the Royal College of GP’s ‘Paul Freeling Prize’ in 2013 for merititious work in the field of General Practice education. It is also used as the foundation textbook for the Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education (PGCE) in at least seven UK universities. The Essential Handbook for GP Training and Education adopts a relaxed, personable approach to primary care education that won't leave you with a headache.
