Are you building your dream team but some seem to be putting ‘day’ before ‘dream’?

Team engagement and performance are dependent on the right direction, appropriate skill-sets, a favourable environment and a strong sense of motivation. In essence, nobody goes to work because of their personality. Yet, human nature is complex and diverse, meaning that motivation methods will differ amongst individuals. This makes the complexities of people’s motivators rather challenging to identify, measure and sustain – at least without the appropriate tools.

This is where Motivational Maps could be the answer to your burning question of:

“How can I motivate my team and keep them engaged and productive?”

Motivational Maps are accredited by the ISO and used by hundreds of organisations. They were created by motivation expert and thought leader James Sale, drawing on the research behind Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, Edgar Schein’s ‘Career Anchors’ and personality profiling tool – The Enneagram. Motivational Maps determines exactly what a person’s core motivators are and whether they’re primarily energised through relationships, achievement or growth. Acknowledging and rewarding these motivational drivers is essential for sustaining satisfaction and efficiency within your team.

(The 9 Motivators)

Whilst some people are primarily driven by financial rewards, others may put a higher value on job security or opportunities to lead and innovate.

It’s important to understand that Motivational Maps is neither a form of psychometric testing or a personality profiling tool. It’s purely an account of a person’s self-perception. The model takes a ground-upwards instead of top-down approach to talent management by focusing on the individual. People’s needs, and their subsequent fulfilment of them, play a pivotal role in organisational performance, culture and overall employee experience.

Gathering essential information on the needs of your team and candidates shouldn’t be a time-consuming task for you or them. That’s why Motivational Maps tool simplifies the process without compromising on accuracy.

Starting with a straightforward online questionnaire, individuals can complete their map in just 12-15 minutes.  The tool automatically analyses their responses and produces clear and easy-to-understand motivational profiles.
