Rather than give you a fictitious organizational situation, I am asking you to apply your knowledge of human motivation to a real scenario. I call this a â€œliving caseâ€ opportunity. The Living Case video will feature Head Coach John Bonamego (Coach Bono) of CMUâ€™s Football Team. The topic of the case is Motivation. Coach Bono provides a presentation about his background and the principles he uses to motivate others based upon his coaching career from highschool to college to the NFL. After viewing his presentation, you will need to address the four questions and requested descriptions below. The Living Case will be graded on an 80-point basis.

Here are the questions and descriptions required for the Living Case assignment.

Generally speaking, â€œmore is better.â€ Make sure you provide specific and detailed examples from the Speakerâ€™s presentation and his/her answers to your questions in addressing the above items. It is required that you reference material from the textbook and/or the recorded lectures to support your assertions as stated in the paper. You donâ€™t have to use any particular citation format.
