The newly appointed supervisor of the tool making department of a company has been reviewing the records of tool makers as a means of getting better acquainted with his men. He is using every possible means to get thoroughly acquainted with his men. He is using every possible means to get thoroughly acquainted because he has been told that the performance of this department has been on the decline and needs to be improved.

He has paused at the record of Subash because Subash appears to him as one of the below average men. The record surprises him because in education, psychological tests and previous ratings, Subash was among the top 10%. So he decided to have a conference with Subash in the afternoon.
The discussion between the two has proceeded only a few minutes when Subash invites the supervisor to stop at his house on way home to see some of his hobby work. There Subash shows the supervisor some of the finest parts for miniature cars, kept in his workshop. And Mrs. Subash points out that her husband can hardly be dragged out his workshop to get a good night's sleep.


1) Does Subash have a motivational potential that can be exploited?

2) How do you account for his lack of motivation on the job?
