We teach this to 3rd Class Petty Officers yet many seniors don't understand it
As a leader in any organization, understanding the basic theories of motivation and how they relate to performance is a valuable asset. The more you understand your own needs, the better chance you have of recognizing the needs of your peers, seniors, and subordinates.
Knowing how individual needs influence attitudes, behaviors, and performance, and using that knowledge, will increase your ability to influence others and enable you to be a more effective leader.
As a Navy leader, you must focus on motivating your subordinates to maintain the standards required in naval service.
