Why are you motivated to use your talents based on your drivers of engagement?
Research conducted by Innermetrix shows that the most successful people share the common trait of self-awareness. They recognize the situations that will make them successful, and this makes it easy for them to find ways of achieving objectives that resonate with their motivations. They also understand their limitations and where they are not effective. This helps them understand what does not inspire them or what will not motivate them to succeed. Those who understand their natural motivators better, are far more likely to pursue the right opportunities, for the right reasons, and get the results they desire.
Your report measures seven dimensions of motivation. Values help influence behavior and action and can be considered somewhat of a hidden motivation because they are not readily observable. Understanding your values helps to tell you why you prefer to do what you do. It is vital for superior performance to ensure that your motivations are satisfied by what you do. This drives your passion, reduces fatigue, inspires you and increases drive.
