As the founder of National Motivation & Inspiration Day and president of Motivate America, Kevin McCrudden asks us to ´´become the very best U that U can be” by ´´taking action to make things happen.” The Commencement is Kevin’s gift to graduates. It is his hope that through this short discussion graduates will obtain a different view of themselves and the world they live in - and that they will take away critical points that can change their lives, through their own choice. In ´´U: Who Are U?´´ Kevin introduces the 21st Century Multidimensional Hierarchy of Needs, which breaks down the complexity of the human experience and provides guidance on how to change the course of your life through meeting your individual needs. In The Commencement, Kevin provides some of his most profound insights as he asks graduates to focus not on the traditional question of ´´what do you want to be when you grow up” but rather to decide ´´who you choose to be and how you choose to live your life” as they commence with their journey as young adults into adulthood. 1.

What motivates people to do their best work in any endeavor they undertake? Management theory and practice has traditionally focused on elements that Kenneth Thomas calls ´´extrinsic motivators´´: pay, benefits, status, bonuses, commissions, pension plans, expense budgets, and the like. While these are powerful motivators, particularly in command/control job situations where workers have little or no say in how the job is managed, by themselves they are no longer enough. In today´s organizations, where managers expect workers and teams to self-manage their work, intrinsic rewards are essential. This breakthrough book provides the first comprehensive treatment of intrinsic motivation in the workplace - the psychological rewards workers get directly from the work itself - offering clear advice on how companies can harness its tremendous power to develop a more committed, self-managing workforce. Written in an engaging, accessible style and grounded in solid academic research, the book provides a diagnostic framework for addressing problems of intrinsic motivation and essential ways to build it.
