Why Use Workplace Motivators?

Because for people to be more engaged, productive and satisfied in their personal and professional lives, they must understand their intrinsic motivators and drivers. By using the Workplace Motivators (WPMOT) assessment, people can tap into a deeper realisation of who they are. They will gain powerful insight into why they move into action and what really motivates them to achieve.

Go beyond an understanding of your behaviours and discover why you do what you do; this deeper awareness will help you to better articulate your passion and reach your potential.

“Go beyond an understanding of your behaviours and discover why you do what you do.”

What is Workplace Motivators?

The WPMOT theory was developed by Eduard Spranger, who observed that people viewed the world and their interactions through six different “attitudes”. Based on the intensity of the "attitudes", Spranger could determine what motivated and drove a person into action. After extensive research, the WPMOT assessment was developed based on Spranger's theory.

Our attitudes reflect our values, which shape the way we see the world - they are a viewpoint, a mindset or a way of valuing life. As a result, these values motivate us to take action. Therefore, the WPMOT explains why we move into action as well as what motivates us to achieve, sell, manage, connect with customers and more.

"Our attitudes reflect our values, which shape the way we see the world. "

The six motivators that the WPMOT instrument measures are: Theoretical: a drive to understand and systemise the truth. Utilitarian: a drive to get a return on time, money and resources. Aesthetic: a drive for beauty, form and harmony. Social: a drive to eliminate hate and conflict. Individualistic: a drive to lead and be different. Traditional: a drive to a achieve a higher purpose.

Once you are aware of the dominant motivators contributing passion and purpose to your life, you will be able to clarify what drives your actions, as well as what causes conflict.
