Resource & F.A.Q

1. I have done lots of assessments, how is this different?

Motivational Map is different in several ways

1. A major difference is in what the assessment measures. Psychometric assessments represent 98% of available assessments, and they inform on the cognitive part of your brain which deals with intelligence, personality, reasoning, skills etc. Basically, it informs on your WHO and WHAT. Motivational Maps is different because it makes you aware of your WHY. It informs on what is motivating you, and how you feel about the level at which your motivational dimensions are being satisfied.

2. Another difference is that it is NON-JUDGEMENTAL. Map results neither label you, nor compare you to your cohort. In essence, it simply pegs where you are currently, on the motivation spectrum.

3. Whereas personality and intelligence are fairly static, motivations changes as people change, or as their environment and situation change. Therefore, this assessment may be repeated as necessary. It may be used as a pulse check or to uncover why a motivation shift has occurred. That shift may manifest itself in behaviors such as avoidance, procrastination, a lack of (or even abundance of) energy and enthusiasm.
