What do you value in life and at work? Are you passionate about your job? Are you working in your strengths? What do your team members value? Are they in the right seats on the bus?
When you’re committing eight hours of every work day to work, shouldn’t you be doing something you really love? I’ve spent the past 20 years understanding personality styles and helping people work and communicate in their strengths.
Another fabulous assessment to help take you and your team even further by discovering what motivates you is the VALUES Motivators Test.
Check out the video and then click the Instant Access button to start your VALUES Test!
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.
They 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.
This report measures seven dimensions of motivation. They are:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
For example, a person with a high level of Economic will probably do a good job in a sales position, while a person with a high level of Altruistic will probably do well in customer service.

I took the Values profile a little over a year ago and I found it extremely helpful, along with DISC. Both gave me a clear picture of my personality style and motivators and helped me confirm that I am in the right place professionally. I highly recommend it!
It’s crazy how fast you realize that you either are or are NOT in the right place. Thanks Lil!
As proof of how accurate it is, for those who have gotten to know me better, here is my profile:
High Aesthetic – You prefer form, harmony and balance
Very Low Economic- You try to meet customer’s needs before your own
Very High Individualistic – You demonstrate high independence and project self-confidence
Very High Political – You are a very strong leader
Average Altruist – You are concerned for others without giving everything away – a stabilizer
Low Regulatory – You are able to be a multi-threaded problem solver, able to shift gears in a flexible way
High Theoretical – You have a high interest level in understanding the aspects of a situation or subject
