Solid foundations. Focused team.

Your happiness and success at work is partly determined by whether or not your core 'Motivations' are being met.

These Motivations are not a conscious decision, but rather emerge from your self-concept, beliefs, expectations and personality.

As with our purpose in life, we do not 'invent' motivations; instead, we detect them. It is vital to go with the grain of our Motivations.

Motivational Maps: origins and development

The Motivational Map is not a personality test, or a psychometric profiling tool, it is a self perception inventory. The original Motivational Map was created by James Sale through his extensive research into human motivation and the study of three primary sources:

  • Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs,
  • Edgar Schein’s Career Anchors
  • The Enneagram, a personality profiling tool

The original Motivational Map was developed with the corporate/business world in mind, and thousands of people worldwide complete the Motivational Map every year. Organisations and businesses use the Motivational Map to help inform processes such as Career Management, Recruitment and Selection, Talent Management and Performance Management.

There are hundreds of Licensed Motivational Maps Practitioners globally, working with their clients using Motivational Maps technology for the benefit of organisations and companies in many market sectors.

The product portfolio includes specific versions for teams and organisations. The questionnaire is available in several languages.

The Motivational Map is based on three clusters of motivation: motivation through your relationships, motivation through your own achievements, and motivation through your individual growth.

Within these clusters are nine individual motivators. Of these, three will typically be stronger, with one as a core motivator. Motivational Maps technology asks some simple, yet pertinent questions that generates a unique, individual map, detailing the contribution of each motivator and how this can affect personal performance. The Motivational Map is presented as an easy-to-read report that accurately describes an individual’s drivers, and practical steps they can take to make use of this self knowledge.

Nine ways to… empower your people

One of the great paradoxes of life is that in giving, we receive. In empowering others, we give power to ourselves. It is a weird principle, but the older I get, the more I realise its truth. If you want to be adored by many people, first, you have to shine the spotlight on them. If you want wealth, you have to invest. If you want to create, you have to engage with and honour the creations and inn...read more

Leadership isn’t a fad...

Today, we’re talking about leadership, and I’m going to start with something a little bit esoteric. The reason for this is I think it’s important to understand that leadership isn’t a fad, or a simply modern concern: human beings have always been concerned with leadership, and perhaps always will be!We can see examples of this from many ancient texts from Gilgamesh to the Egyptian Pharoahs and thr...read more

Why Nine Motivators? What The Lord of the Rings has to tell us about Motivational Maps!

There is a common perception nowadays that movies or novels – fiction – is just light entertainment designed to distract us from the boring mundanity of everyday lives. But of course the ancients understood differently, that fictional narratives could contain great wisdom and understanding, with the greatest of them going on to become mythology – another level altogether! So, we often see wisdom c...read more
