A popular management theorist Frederick Herzberg argues that some factors at work are motivational factors and some are plain hygiene factors. For example your monthly pay is a hygiene factor and responsibility or achievement at motivational.

Without the hygiene factors you become dissatisfied with your work, and with motivational factors you only then become satisfied at work.

How relevant is this theory to you? and more importantly, how does your boss factor into motivation?
