  • thanks for your reflection,

  • Thank you for sharing your comments with fellow learners, it is really interesting to hear why you are interested in the course. This is a fascinating area within psychology and as we are all consumers, it affects us all! Welcome to the course.

  • Some great comments and interpretations, thank you, try and read as many comments as you can to see how other students view consumer psychology.

  • Hello,
    I hope those of you who are still joining the course continue to gain greatly from all the materials and activities in Motivation in an Uncertain World. This topic is fascinating, so we hope you will enjoy studying with us and that the course allows you to evaluate some pertinent issues in the current times.

  • Thank you for sharing thoughts on this discussion. Offering more than work itself? Some diverse and fascinating suggestions, please keep them coming.

  • As many of us have been enforced to work remotely during the current COVID situation, perhaps we will gain more insight around the topic than we would have under normal circumstances. It is great to read your thoughts on what you feel are important factors to working this way.

  • Trust? yes, interesting in this scenario

  • Thank you for your comment Mike, I'm sure fellow learners will benefit from your suggestions

  • Great comments, thank you for sharing.

  • Thank you Ana, interesting interpretations.

  • So far the majority of you agree! And thank you for commenting. It is interesting to view all your different perspectives regarding this topic

  • Thank you for the excellent comments. It does make me reflect on what is 'fun' at work. As some of you have commented, for me it can be a simple as having a sense of humour with colleagues regardless of generational differences!

  • That's a good point. Not every organisation can or will move at the same rate. Caution and observation are rarely a bad thing

  • Good to hear that the 'older' generation are seen as bringing their experience alongside being up to date with technology

  • Interesting perspective Kam, - 'normal' is so varied, but it seems we often adapt

  • Thank you for the positive feedback, we hope you continue to enjoy the course and please keep 'commenting', your insights and experiences that you bring to the discussions are fantastic and of great value to all who read them.

  • Some great points Julie. It is so true our CVs say we are great communicators and we so often forget! Perhaps this current COVID crisis will assist in us communicating better considering many of us have to now do it virtually.

  • Thank you for that insight, Maisie, I hope that having reached this realisation you are now working in a organisation which provides this.

  • Thanks for the comments - some fascinating viewpoints

  • Indeed

  • This is an interesting insight into your experience. You have highlighted that motivation can be decreased so easily.

  • Thank you for your responses to this section. Are we concerned about the way technology will change work as we know it? There appears to be positivity amongst the uncertainty from the information presented here - perhaps 'flexibility' also means 'adaptability' through learning?

  • Great points here. It will be fascinating to see how elements such as career progression will be affected by flexible working practices. Particularly if e.g. dedication and commitment are not as visible.

  • These are some interesting points that you have highlighted, Valerie. There are pros and cons to flexible working and as you suggest flexible working can become less flexible when it is 'imposed' or blurs the lines between of your work/life balance.

  • I can relate to this comment, Jess. Interesting how we are able to reach out and communicate more effectively and broadly when we have to.

  • That's a really good point - thank you

  • @MAUDEWOENAMAMAFUGAR Thank you for highlighting this point - from someone who is always trying to keep up with digital natives!

  • That does appear to
