Role models motivate for greater achievement

Domingo Valero

Having role models motivates for greater achievement, according to a Canadian study. This only works, however, if the role model stands for a goal that can be attained and that is relevant to one's own work. Otherwise, a role model can even have negative consequences on a person's self-view. People should thus rather take the well-seasoned, competent older colleague with a similar job description as a career role model instead of the topshot new recruit from a different division.
