Abstract and Keywords

Thriving may be defined as the joint experience of vitality and learning. It is a marker of individual growth and forward progress. As a result, thriving can serve as a kind of internal gauge that individuals can use to assess how they are doing in terms of their well-being at work. We review findings regarding thriving including key outcomes and antecedent conditions. Given the focus of this volume on self-determination theory, we articulate how thriving may be nurtured from the nutriments of autonomous motivation. All three nutriments of autonomous motivation—a sense of autonomy, competence, and relatedness—facilitate more thriving at work. To this end, by linking autonomous motivation and thriving, we can build a more integrative model of human growth at work.

Keywords: thriving, self-determination, autonomous motivation, vitality, learning, energy, growth
