How to Use Intrinsic Motivation for More Energy and Less Stress

Workplace Motivators six listed CBF 2023

Would you happen to know what your top two intrinsic motivation interests and values are?

Insight around your top interests will help you make the right career and daily work decisions so that a day on the job leaves you feeling energized, not burned out.

When coaching clients, we often use the Talent Insights Assessment or the Workplace Motivators Assessment. Both are customized-to-you, scientifically-based & validated tools designed to help you better understand your intrinsic motivations and relate them to a work environment. 

Results not only reveal your top two intrinsic motivation interests/passions it provides specific-to-you actions that can be taken to create work days that leave you more energized. With your results, you'll KNOW what your top two passions are; armed with this information, you will be better able to choose where and how you spend your time deliberately.

And, as you better understand your top intrinsic motivation interests, you will also better understand what motivates and drives others. This deeper understanding and awareness will make you a more effective leader, salesperson, spouse, friend, and family member.

Michelle's Top Intrinsic Motivation Interests Leads to Satisfying Career Change...


Michelle Draschil is a formerly 'bummed out' manager who's excitedly on her way to becoming an Architect, a career lined up with her intrinsic motivation.

Her Workplace Motivators Report revealed that her top two motivators are high Aesthetic and high Utilitarian. Her new career allows her to use her natural strengths and intrinsic motivation interest to the fullest. Please look at the motivators list below for more details about these two interests. Here's what Michelle shared about her journey:

"Suzie provided me with the Workplace Motivators Assessment and Program when considering a career change. My results led to many 'ah ha!' moments. It was beneficial since I tended to get frustrated in my jobs and didn't know why. Since reviewing these reports, I'm more in tune with myself. If there comes a situation, I can talk about it with confidence. I've been able to look at myself from a fresh perspective and more clearly see what's important to me, my intrinsic motivations - what I need in my work environment and life to be truly happy. Before, I couldn't figure out 'what I wanted to be when I grew up.' This tool and Suzie's compassionate insight helped show me the way."
