Motivation for achievement (within an organization)

Inner drive to fully express one’s potential, improve performance continuously and reach desired goals; achieving the objective is more important than the reward. Within an organization, people with a strong motivation to achieve want to reach professional excellence, seek challenging objectives, and work harder when they expect acknowledgements for the effort they put in. The drive for achievement may be expressed as the search for personal achievement or for social achievement.
