That we have a great need to be encouraged is coated in a variety of motivational theories. Despite our awareness of this need, studies show that Swedish employees feel a lack of encouragement in the workplace. The purpose of this report is to examine the factors that affect our ability to give others encouragement.
Empirical data were collected through questionnaires from 91 people in the workplace. Correlation between the experience of giving and receiving encouragement, self-image, outlook on mankind and stress in the workplace are examined using a linear Multiple Regression Analysis. Correlation between the experience of giving and receiving encouragement is examined using Pearsons test of correlation.
The results show that there is no significant correlation between the experience of giving and receiving encouragement, self-image, outlook on mankind and stress. But however, a significant correlation between the experience of giving encouragement and to receive encouragement in the workplace occured.
The conclusion indicates that what mostly affects our ability to encourage others in the workplace is the extent to which one recieves encouraged in the workplace.
