Hello and welcome to show 260 of our podcast “Absolutely Intercultural”. Today we talk about different cultures of motivation. Can it be true that in our globalized world we still stick to our culturally determined motivation strategies? Our interviewees report about motivation strategies in their own national cultures. What is the best method to keep your employees from Albania, Georgia and Azerbaijan productive? Why do we seem to lose our motivation over time and how can we refresh it? Well, in today’s episode we interview students from three different countries about effective motivation techniques in their own cultures.
In our first category, “absolutely rewarding”, Kidis admits that he expected pocket money from his parents for doing household chores like dish-washing.
In our second category, “absolutely non-material”, Veriko talks about her work experiences and that she is not so easily motivated by salary or benefits.
Finally, in our last category, “absolutely indirect”, Aytaj talks about her experience with direct and constructive feedback.
What are your thoughts about this? What motivates YOU personally? Let us know and we can report in the next show!
Our next show will be coming to you on 2 April.
Until then – stay motivated – and
Bleiben Sie absolut interkulturell!

Hello, I liked the podcast and the way it is recorded is amazing. The episode is informational and quiet relevant also.
The innovative idea that has been discussed here is explained in a proper manner and it keeps on moving instead of dwelling on a single topic, which is amazing. Thank you for sharing.
