Back in December, we released our VALUES Motivators Test. The VALUES profile tests what you value most in life. For leaders, having a team member in a position where their motivators aren’t utilized can be a huge waste of time, energy, and money. It is vital to have team members operating in their strengths with both their personality style and values!

This report measures seven dimensions of motivation. They are:

  1. The Aesthetic Dimension: The main motivation in this value is the drive to achieve balance, harmony and find form or beauty. Environmental concerns or “green” initiatives are also typically prized by this dimension.
  2. The Economic Dimension: This dimension examines the motivation for security from economic gain, and to achieve practical returns. The preferred approach of this dimension is a professional one with a focus on bottom-line results.
  3. The Individualistic Dimension: The Individualistic dimensions deals with one’s need to be seen as unique, independent, and to stand apart from the crowd. This is the drive to be socially independent and have opportunity for freedom of personal expression.
  4. The Political Dimension: This drive is to be seen as a leader, and to have influence and control over one’s environment or success. Competitiveness is often associated with those scoring high in this motivation.
  5. The Altruistic Dimension: This drive is an expression of the need or drive to benefit others in a humanitarian sense. There is a genuine sincerity in this dimension to help others, give of one’s time, resources and energy, in aid of others.
  6. The Regulatory Dimension: The Regulatory drive indicates one’s drive to establish order, routine and structure. This motivation is to promote rules and policies, a traditional approach and security through standards and protocols.
  7. The Theoretical Dimension: The drive to understand, gain knowledge, or discover the “truth”. This motivation can often be to gain knowledge for knowledge sake. Rational thinking, reasoning and problem solving are important to this dimension.

As you begin to look at your team members both on their DISC and VALUES, and compare it to the position they’re in, you’ll be able to identify wether or not they’re in the right spot. If they’re not, you’ll have challenges. Everything comes down to communication and when we’re not communicating effectively, it changes how we act and react!

For leaders, having a team member in a position where their motivators aren’t utilized can be a huge waste of time, energy, and money. It is vital to have team members operating in their strengths with both their Personality Style and Values!

 

  • Research shows that the most successful people share the common trait of self-awareness.

    Chris LoCurto, Leadership, Business, Strategic Planning, LifePlan, #CLoTribeThey recognize the situations that will make them successful, and this makes it easy for them to find ways of achieving objectives that resonate with their motivations.

    They also understand their limitations and where they are not effective and this helps them understand what does not inspire them or what will not motivate them to succeed.

    Those who understand their natural motivators better are far more likely to pursue the right opportunities, for the right reasons, and get the results they desire. Learn more about the 7 Motivators by clicking the tab above and be sure to check out the Sample Graph too.
