About this item

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.

  • Applies individual motivation within groups to a variety of contexts such as work teams, educational settings, and sports teams
  • Highlights advances in recent research, future directions, and linkages with related research areas
  • Discusses cross-cultural and international implications
  • Examines what detracts from and contributes to group motivation
