They learn from their experience.Power motivation is the drive to influence people and change situations. Power motivated people wish to create an impact in their organization and are willing to take calculated risks to do so.Attitude motivation is how people think and feel. It is their self confidence, belief in themselves and attitude.Incentive motivation is where a person or a team reaps an award for performing an activity. It is a-- you do this and you get that --sort attitude. It is the types of awards and prizes that drive people to work a little harder in life.
