Goal-setting theory Edwin Locke
In 1960, Edwin Locke put forward the goal-setting theory of motivation
- The goals should be challenging but not exceed the person’s ability.
- Performance feedback is essential.
- Goal setting by management works best when people are already internally motivated by a need to achieve.
- Participative goal-setting works best for individuals with a lower need for achievement, and they are familiar and at ease with participative management techniques.
- Goal-setting is related to self-efficiency in terms of how goals are chosen and how results are feedback.
Researcher Edwin Locke found that individuals who set specific difficult goals performed better than those who set general, easy goal. The goal-setting theory refers to the effect of setting goals on subsequent performance.
Principles of goal-setting
5: Task Complexity
This theory states that goal setting is essentially linked to task performance, it states that specific and challenging goals along with appropriate feedback contribute to higher and better task performance. In simple words, goals indicate and give direction to an employee about what needs to be done and how much effort is required to be put in.
“ Specific, difficult goals consistently led to higher performance than urging people to do their best. In short, when people are asked to do their best, they do not do so” (Locke,2002)
Goal-setting motivation gave inspiration for job motivation, realistic and challenging tasks, and a specific and clear destination. Goal setting is important for every person, without goal man, has only passed a time not utilize things for a specific purpose. When a student goes to study without any difficulty and only for enjoyment that is not called hard work because they have not goal-setting in their minds. Without put up the mind for goal-setting and hardworking life is nothing more to spark.
