Motivation is a process consistent of numerous factors that make employees continually interested and committed in their job: it is done by stimulating their unique characteristics and their own needs/energies. Dealing with a managerial context, this paper provides a wide discussion about the different keys that encourage motivation and empowerment; business well-being happens by adopting the appropriate strategies aimed at achieving satisfaction and productivity. There is a focus on intrinsic/extrinsic motivation and on how it is related to effectiveness, efficiency, productivity and performances. So monetary incentives are not always the right stimulus when the purposes are corporate healthy behaviors and high results. Furthermore, S.M.A.R.T. goals setting is explained: its implementation requires management-based theories and reinforcement procedures. In addition, leadership styles play an important role in this framework. The ones here discussed are participative, supportive and directive. The paper finishes with a brief discussion on findings, researchers’ illustrations and authors’ thoughts.
