Many organisations dangle a carrot, call it rewards and recognition, and expect people to change their behaviour or to improve their performance so that business results will follow. Unfortunately, it’s just not that simple. Four-Drive Theory (Paul R. Lawrence and Nitin Nohria of Harvard Business School) proposes that the choices people make are driven by four independent, universal, and primary biological drives, namely to Acquire, to Defend, to Bond and to Comprehend, and that emotions play a fundamental role in prioritising and influencing our decision-making processes.
Marie-Claire presented this session at the SARA (South African Reward Association) conference in October 2013. The presentation looks at the Four-Drive motivational model, the implications for Total Rewards strategies, and Four Drive recognition.
