The word “motivation” is used to describe the behaviour that arises from the different
sources of stimulation either internal or external. These behaviours are goal-directed.
Therefore motivation can be defined as the process of initiating, maintaining and
channeling behaviour towards a particular goal.
Motivation is not directly visible but refers to the cause of why we do particular
things to obtain certain goals.
It is believed by most of the motivation philosophers that motivation is involved
in the performance of all learned responses. The significant question amongst psychologists
is whether motivation is a primary or secondary influence on behaviour.
Motivation is seen to be made up of a number of concepts either on its own or a combination
of a number of them called needs, motives, goals or drive. To distinguish between
the meanings of these terms is important;
A need is a condition of lack of something required, which the organism finds necessary
to satisfy itself in order to maintain its existing balance.
Motive refers to goal directed behaviour and energizing conditions within the organism
that drives behaviour. It is generally used to refer to certain conditions within
Goals are related to needs. A goal is something that you think about that will contribute
to the satisfaction of a need or motive.
Drive is an innate force that influences people to act in certain ways.

There are three phases that go into the design and delivery of effective training:
it has to be specific to an organisation, the group of people to whom the training
is offered and most importantly to the group to whom the training is delivered.
