The art of motivation in China – a visual guide

The students of my course “Global Management Communication”, held in Beijing (China) came up with really interesting visualization on the topic of motivation in an organizational context. Here are some of their insightful drawings:




I didn’t report the names for privacy issues – the drawing were all made by the Central University of Finance and Economics’ students of the 2014 edition of the Summer Program.

What I found particularly intresting in these drawings – in addition to the great sketching skills! – is the emphasis on the “type” of person who should be motivated (age/gender/status)… an aspect that most of our Western theories neglect!
