What are Motivational Maps?

As the saying goes, ‘what gets measured gets managed’. For people to be able to maximise their own motivation, they first need to know what motivates them and then how well these motivators are being met. We need to make the invisible visible.

And that’s where Motivational Maps® comes in. Maps are an ISO-accredited tool which identifies the order and intensity of nine Motivators and measures the extent to which they are being met.

In the same way as tools like Insights Discovery® has brought a common language around behaviour, and Belbin® has for teams, Motivational Maps does the same for motivation.

"I was thoroughly delighted and surprised by the value we gained through using the Motivational Map tool. I feel like I’ve been tested by every psychometric in the world and this one has a distinctly fresh, open and expanding effect rather than the usual 2 dimensional labelling and categorizing. My brother and I who I work closely with came away with some highly important and specific insights which are perfect to look at right now as our business transforms and grows. We were both laughing, rolling our eyes and spotting stuff that resonated throughout the whole brilliantly facilitated playback conversation with Kate. Definitely feeling the love for this one will be using again and recommending to clients."

Why focus on motivation?

For years, organisations have been seeking ways to build positive, inclusive cultures, develop high levels of engagement and nurture talent. Strong focus has been placed on setting a clear direction of travel by having a Purpose, a Vision and a Strategy. This answers the question “What do I need to do?” It makes clear the outcomes, impact and results that constitute success.

Organisations have also placed a real emphasis on Values and how these translate to behaviours that support the strategy. Talent development also remains a critical area. These combine to answer the question: “How do I contribute?” This helps individuals play to their strengths in the areas of skills, behaviours, knowledge and experience.

In our experience there is a third, vital question to be answered. A question which enables people to become committed to developing and using these behaviours and delivering on these outcomes. That question is “Why bother?” This is a question about motivation.

Harnessing motivation is at the heart of what we do. By applying the language and measurement that Motivational Maps provides to a variety of business challenges, we can help you to elevate the human experience of work AND build sustainable levels of high performance.

Motivational Maps are a powerful addition to any Learning and Development professional’s toolkit. If you’d like to add it to your’s, find out about accreditation here

Why focus on motivation

“More than ever before, my clients are wanting to talk about motivation. They are asking: how can leaders inspire their team members? What can they do keep people going when times are tough? How might they create development plans that are exciting and challenging? How can they tap into the performance potential of all of the different and diverse personalities?

Motivational Maps has been a key tool for me to help my clients answer these questions and create meaningful plans to make the most of their most valuable asset - their people.

We have used maps with individuals, with teams and across entire organisations to enable us to have conversations that get to the heart of motivation, engagement and culture”.
