This is a really simple and effective way of introducing Herzberg to students but is equally as good as a starter to a lesson straight after Herzberg has been taught.

Simply go round the classroom giving each student a couple of maltesers. Put them on their desk and tell them its a treat but they can't have them until you have gone round everyone.

Then, tell them that you have changed your mind. They can’t have them and you are taking them back. See the disappointment on their faces.

Bingo. Dissatisfaction in the classroom!

You can then use this example to illustrate hygiene factors. By removing the sweets you are creating demotivation/ dissatisfaction

Herzberg said that once a reward is given it becomes a right. This illustrates that perfectly.
