More Motivation in the Workplace:

Focus and Tendencies

Get more motivation in the workplace by better understanding how to use your Workplace Motivators Assessment results.

Reminder: All motivators are considered equally valuable - one is not inherently better than another. (Though, usually, if it's our top motivator we tend to think it is the "right way" to do things and "the best" way to focus.)

The quiz for self esteem - Workplace Motivator assessment measures what energizes us; our soul spirit intentions. We did not all intend to be Mother Teresa or Ghandi - but we did all intend to bring our creations to the world.

And the key to your creation, the value, strength, energy and inspiration you planned to bring to the world lies in your top two motivators.

So, I encourage you, drop your judgment of what's 'right.' Take a look at each of your top areas and remember the value and love we bring to each interaction is defined by each person. We can be self or objective-focused in, for example, our studies (like Albert Einstein) and bring great value to the world.

Use this information to guide yourself to more motivation in the workplace and more empowered, high energy, add-value-to-the-world-in-my-own-special-way wake up eager days!
