Method: The study is an emprical one in which survey was used as data collecting method. Collected datas were analyzed with SPSS 16.0 and AMOS 6.0 programs. Explainatory and Confirmatory Factor Analyses were used for validation of the scales, whereas Regression Analysis have been used for the testing of hypotheses. Findings and Results: According to the research findings, the motivational language used by managers both have a possitive effect on the performance perceptions of employees toward theirselves and their managers.
