Description

Individual Motivation within Groups: Social Loafing and Motivation Gains in Work, Academic, and Sports Teams addresses the relationship between social loafing and motivation research, including longstanding, key psychological phenomena such as social dilemmas, social facilitation, and ostracism. Each chapter creates connections to related topics such as leadership, performance in learning groups, isolated teams, and more. This book provides a summary of the field’s history, synthesizes related research, and, using the Collective Effort Model, looks at the current level of understanding of both motivation losses and gains in groups.
