Motivators or values are the drivers behind our behavior; what motivates our actions. They are principles or standards by which we act and are beliefs held so strongly that they affect the behavior of an individual or an organization. An individual’s experiences, references, education, and training tell us WHAT they can do. A behavioral assessment will tell us HOW they will do it. However, it is not until we know an individual’s values or motivators that we will understand WHY they do what they do.
Knowledge of motivators can:
- Encourage participants in a way that satisfies their inner drive
- Determine if the participant’s position will be rewarding
- Reduce conflicts
- Increased talent retention
- Improved efficiency and productivity
- Energize any group working together toward common goals
The Motivators report identifies six different values that motivate an individual to take action.
- Knowledge - The discovery of truth
- Utility - Money and what is useful; ROI
- Surroundings - Form and harmony
- Others - An inherent caring for people; helping others
- Power - Personal power, influence and renown
- Methodologies - A system for living
Researchers recently found that avoidance could be as strong as acceptance; so 12 profiles were derived from the highs and lows of the 6 Motivators. As a result, 12 Driving Forces were developed which more precisely and accurately pinpoint the varying distinctions of how a person derives more meaning from life and work.
- A Motivators report is created after the completion of a short on-line assessment. Based on the responses, a completely personalized and unique report is immediately created.
- A debrief coaching session discusses and guides the participant through an in-depth understanding of these insights and how they potentially impact their performance.
- This assessment can be combined in one report and debrief session with the Motivators assessment if so desired.
