The real benefit for an organisation using Motivational Maps the hard data. You can regularly measure and track performance and engagement of an individual, team or division, by completing another map and comparing before and after results (motivational percentages).

At an organisational level, we see that motivational mapping is allowing us to have more comfortable conversations as human beings. We talk about output and what produces output, which is the person, what is driving them, what is motivating them. People understand that managers have to deal with that if they want to get results. It has changed the culture and the language.


How are Motivational Maps different to other tools?


Where a company has already invested in a psychometric such as MBTI or Insights Discovery, Motivational Maps help deepen self-awareness and the tool is seen as a complementary rather than a ‘same as’ tool.


Whereas many tools just provide an individual with information, Motivational Maps collates data across the team, department and whole companies. This enables organisations to get intelligence on what drives its culture, employee engagement, values and more, so they can have more informed and relevant people strategies.
