Motivation in Public versus Private Sector

My management experience in Ugandan public and private organizations has made me believe that CEOs motivate employees differently.
In most cases, public organizations are characterized by political influence, patronage and weakened shock absorbers for motivation.
Employee performance in the public sector is not a primary target. Rather CEOs prioritise employee loyalty to the top management and blind obedience to the policies dictated and imposed on the workers via top-bottom paradigm.
Performance appraisals never take place, or if they do, they are 'cosmetized' to depict loyal but sycophant workers as excellent performers.
In the private sector however things are different. CEOs simply want results. And they know that to get the best milk from a cow, you ought to give it good quality pasture. Employees are involved in the management process.
