Motivation for social achievement (within an organization)

Inner drive to fully express one’s potential, improve performance continuously and reach desired goals, for oneself and for the organization; achieving the objective is more important than the reward. Within an organization, people with a strong drive for social achievement want to reach professional excellence, seek challenging objectives and work harder when they expect acknowledgements for themselves as well as for the people who helped achieve the results. A management group distinguished by a high motivation for social achievement is a real competitive advantage for an organization. It differs from the drive for personal achievement.
