The study used a cross sectional research design and qualitative and quantitative approaches were used. The study used stratified sampling. The study used a sample of 110 respondents. The findings were: in objective one participative goal setting had a weak relationship with employee performance, in objective two participative decision making had a moderate relationship with employee performance; while in objective three extrinsic motivation was not related to employee performance.The study concluded that participative goal had a moderate but positive significant relationship with employee performance in Centenary Bank, participative decision making influenced performance of employees in Centenary Bank fairly strongly and extrinsic motivation cannot account for improvement of employee performance in Centenary Bank. The study recommended that to get the best out of participative goal, bank employees need to have targeted training, participative decision making needs to happen routinely and not something management pays lip service to and Centenary bank management and board need to consider alternative options like investing in intrinsic motivation on top of the extrinsic motivation, and perhaps the employees may respond to this fresh approach.
