(as used by the United Nations and taught only during magenta’s neuro linguistic programming certification)
Motivational mapping is an extremely effective self-perception tool (in fact, I am working with the United Nations using maps) that is taught during neuro linguistic programming certification courses.
In particular, it is great for managers/leaders who are seeking to better understand the individuals working for them in order to improve their leadership and management skills.
Many people assume that money is the most important motivator, yet in actual fact it is only one of nine.
The motivators (in no particular order) are as follows…
• Competition and achievement
• Friendship and fulfilling relationships
• Control and influence
• Expertise, learning and mastery
• Doing something meaningful and worthwhile
• Creative innovation
• Freedom and independence
Once you are aware which of these factors you value and in what order, you are in a much better position to make important career decisions, as you can accurately predict which path is most likely to bring you satisfaction. Certainly, this process really helped me when I was unsure whether or not to make the move into coaching from employment.
Having completed the map and discovered that my main motivators were freedom and independence, I was able to leave my employment in the knowledge that I was making the right choice for me. The tool can also predict future changes in motivation (in conjunction with the guidance of your qualified map practitioner), so that you can plot future career changes at the right time.
