Dissertation on employee motivation, performance, and well-being

Currently, I am writing an article on an article in which I look at the solution-focused approach through a Self-Determination Theory lense. This process has brought me into contact with several interesting people and publications. One of these I'd like to mention here. It is thesis by Natasha Parfvonova of The University of Western Ontario, Canada called "Employee Motivation, Performance And Well-Being: The Role Of Managerial Support For Autonomy, Competence And Relatedness Needs". This research project sought to better understand how managers influence employee motivation, job performance, and wellbeing in organizations.  Specifically, this research concerns the workings and effects of how managers support the sense of autonomy, competence and relatedness of employees. This approach to researching management effectiveness has my great interest. It resembles many of the aspects of the solution-focused management approach I have co-developed. I can't say much more about it now but I hope to write more about this in the coming months.
