1.1 Listening to football club employees and players
You have started to think about what motivates people in general terms. You’ll now hear directly from football club employees and players in a fascinating, specially made video that uses behind-the-scenes interviews from Football League clubs MK Dons and Chesterfield.
Activity 2 Comparing your work motives with those in football
The following video contains a unique range of perspectives from the boot room to the boardroom. Note down the different reasons people state for workplace satisfaction and dissatisfaction. Consider how the motives described for a football club compare with or extend beyond the reasons highlighted in the previous activity (including job interest, social interaction, self-esteem, identity, doing good and any other reasons).
Love and enjoyment of being part of the game shines through for most interviewees but what else brings them job satisfaction or dissatisfaction?
