Motivation in the Workplace Report

The Motivation in the Workplace assessment identifies the primary motivators that drive a person.  It is the “why” or “what” that motivates them to take action. Motivation in the workplace doesn’t have to be illusive. When a person has their primary motivators aligned with the primary functions and incentives of their role, performance and morale are high, and conflicts are diminished. While relationships are frequently helped or hindered by conflicted behavioral styles, more often than not relationships become strong or seriously derailed by a conflict in Workplace Motivation factors.


Why do some people care about achieving results and some are immersed in a learning loop?

Why do some people seem to know how important it is to pay attention to the people aspect of a decision and some seem blind to it?

Why do some people feel a job title is important and some couldn’t care less?

Why do some people have a “natural” creative problem solving talent and some just don’t see it?

These are just some of the insights we glean from interpreting this assessment for clients. It explains a great deal about why we do what we do, and how that is different from those working with and around us.

The Workplace Motivation Report measures the relative prominence of six basic interests or values:

  • Theoretical Knowledge
  • Utilitarian/Economic Money
  • Aesthetic Form and Harmony
  • Social/Altruistic Helpfulness
  • Individualistic/Political Power
  • Traditional/Regulatory Order


Values help to initiate one’s behavior and are sometimes called the hidden motivators because they are not always readily observed. The purpose of this report is to help illuminate and amplify those motivating factors and to build on the strengths that each person brings to the work environment.

Based on ones’ choices, this report ranks ones’ relative passion for each of the six values. The knowledge of an individual’s values help tell us why they do what they do. By measuring values, we uncover some of these motivators and can identify strengths that make each person unique within an organization. Values initiate or drive our behavioral style which is assessed by the DISC Behavioral Assessment.

Workplace Motivation for Teams

The Workplace Motivation Report is also used for a team workshop designed to help members of the team individually and collectively understand what motivates them to action.  Workplace Motivation Workshop details here.
