The Motivators assessment is the perfect companion to any of the DISC assessments. Whereas DISC assessments predict “How” someone will behave, Motivators tells you “Why”. Being able to measure and understand “How” and “Why” someone will behave is vital to predicting the performance of job applicants, optimizing employee performance, building top performing teams, uncovering the source(s) of communicative dysfunction and developing self-aware leaders.
For the Individual
While we are all aware of our motivations to some degree, research shows that successful people share the common trait of exceptional self-awareness. Exceptional self-awareness means these individuals are better at recognizing opportunities that correlate with their inherent motivations, thereby increasing their likelihood for success.
For the Organization
“Employers who invested more in training and development outperformed the market by 35%.” ~ Harvard Business Review
Business leaders are better equipped to make informed hiring & selection decisions when they understand what galvanizes each new job applicant or team member. Steadfastness, attention to detail and accuracy aren’t issues for someone whose motivations align well with the values necessitated by a particular job.
Motivators measures the seven universal dimensions of motivation that exist within each of us. It helps employers to better understand the unique value hierarchy or belief system pertaining to what motivates a candidate or employee, what they are most drawn to and where their passions lie.
