Two experiments demonstrated that positive affect fosters intrinsic motivation, as reflected by choice of activity in a free-choice situation and by rated amount of enjoyment of a novel and
Psychological Mechanisms Underlying the Köhler Motivation Gain
TLDR
It is argued that the relative importance of these two motivational processes will depend on the immediate and chronic importance attached to more personal (viz., to achieve a favorable social comparison) versus collective (vize., to contribute to one's group) goals.

Motivation gains in performance groups: paradigmatic and theoretical developments on the Köhler effect.
TLDR
In Experiment 1, this work developed a paradigm within which Köhler's overall motivation gain effect could be replicated, although the discrepancy in coworkers' capabilities did not moderate these motivation gains (after statistical artifacts were taken into account).
Social loafing and social compensation: the effects of expectations of co-worker performance.
TLDR
The present research tested the social compensation hypothesis, which states that people will work harder collectively than individually when they expect their co-workers to perform poorly on a meaningful task.

Abstract Two studies examined how the social context may contribute to interest in performing an achievement task. Based on Sansone and Harackiewicz' (1996) model, we predicted that individuals high
Self-determination theory and the facilitation of intrinsic motivation, social development, and well-being.
TLDR
Research guided by self-determination theory has focused on the social-contextual conditions that facilitate versus forestall the natural processes of self-motivation and healthy psychological development, leading to the postulate of three innate psychological needs--competence, autonomy, and relatedness.
