Motivation is a key aspect in succeeding at any task. Generally, motivation keeps an individual moving toward his or her goal. It energizes and controls one’s behavior. In any leadership position, it is important to not only understand why motivation is essential, but how those around you are motivated. The purpose of this paper is to identify different motivation styles within an educational setting and provide a curriculum for teaching students how to stay motivated through using goal setting techniques. By analyzing already established research, this paper also looks into a school counselor’s role in motivating these students to succeed academically.
