Motives are key to human behaviour. It plays an important role in performance and other activities and as such the manager should know what motivation is and how subordinates can are motivated towards performance. This study investigates the role of motivation on employees’ performance as the history of explaining human or animal behaviour is not new.” why did one do what one did “had been the subject of working even in the past, some human behaviour was explained as an outcome of demos impedance and this explanation was unscientific. Efforts were also made to determine principles which could explain human behaviour. McDougall emphasized that man’s social behaviour can be explained in terms of instincts which was later on criticized. Freud used “unconscious metal process” to explain behaviour especially in case of perversion, hallucination, dreams, obsession and anxieties. Attempts have also being made to explain human behaviour in terms of rules following purposive model. Also end-state explanation such as need reduction, tension-reduction or homeostatic postulates is offered for behaviour. Motives like drives, needs, instincts are also used to explain human behavior. Neither inspires of all this all inclusive theory of explaining human behaviour is neither easy to present at this stage nor perhaps will it be possible in the future.
