Strengths to Increase Motivation

organizations are all for employee well-being, engagement and positive
interventions. However, the bottom line for many of these organizations is –
are we making profit? (Matthijs Steeneveld) (07
June 2015). The term PsyCap
means to have a positive psychological capital (PsyCap). This attribute is the cornerstone
for hope, efficacy, resilience, and optimism. If one can improve their PsyCap,
he or she may increase job satisfaction and personal well-being while reducing
work-related stress and counterproductive behaviors. (reword).


do agree with the theory of PysCap. I took the test and it describes me
perfectly. It scored my efficacy at 18. That is the highest rating for the test
and I almost always get my desired result from my work. I am nearly always
satisfied with what I have done, however I think that my Obsessive Compulsiveness
makes me think about things in hindsight and second-guess myself. Being
Obsessive Compulsive is a fault in me that I have been dealing with for years.


results in the hope section of this assessment was at 18. I am always full of
hope that things will work out or have worked at not only in the workplace but
my personal life. I believe that without hope, there is no peace. We all must
be at peace with ourselves as well as others to be able to work in harmony. If
there is a lot of turbulence in the workplace, the employees are not focusing
on their work but other distractions and this is counterproductive. Hope
sometimes is hard to find for everyone, but we all have to strive for it.


am very resilient person. This test proved that I am a reliant person. I have
worked in many high stress environments and I have come out of the task
completed. I firmly believe that if a person works hard and does not allow anyone
to hold them back, they can do what it takes to complete the job, “Adapt and


did not score on the high end of the optimism chart. I scored a 15 and this is
the lowest for me on the scoring chart about of all the attributes. I sometimes
not as optimistic about the job or even life as I should be. I guess sometimes
I let other people get under my skin and I know that I should not allow that. I
have to force myself back on track and raise my head up and say I or we can get
this done, again “Adapt and Overcome.” I learned that in the Marine Corps, we
were allowing adapting and overcoming adversity.


closing the PSyCap is well thought out and it works. If more companies or
employers would allow their employees to grow and be treated like human beings
the workforce would improve. The production would improve as well. We all need
to be rewarded and awarded in some way or fashion. “PsyCap also plays an important role in developing
intrapreneurial teams – those teams who act like an entrepreneur while working
within a large organization and allow for innovation and development to occur.”
