In our last post, we spoke about moving motivators and what puts us into action. This week I wanted to push the topic a little further and have you ask yourselves who you really are…What kind of worker are you? What kind of learner? Are you introverted or extroverted? Ambitious or relaxed about getting to your final objective? Or maybe you have never given it much thought…
Well, lucky for you, I found a fabulous personality test known as the Myers-Briggs test you can take in less than 15 minutes and find what kind of personality you have. Maybe you agree with the results, maybe not, either way that will make for an interesting discussion…So stop what you are doing and take this test now! https://www.16personalities.com/
If you are having problems understanding the questions, have your teacher help you out.
Not familiar with Myers-Briggs? Watch this 5 minute video on the history of Myers-Briggs and why 2.5 million people take this test annually.
It really is useful in becoming more aware of yourself and reaching a better you!
Last week we had a wonderful round table session on motivators at work and on projects. Marina gave us some interesting information on how to analyze what motivates us most at work and what makes us lose interest. Did you know money is not everything? Do you agree?
Here is more information on moving motivators
She had us rate or scale our motivators above from 1 to 10. 1 being the most important and 10 the least important. It was fascinating to see what we each chose as important and non-important. She then explained what each of these motivators could mean in our professional world.
Afterwards, we related these motivators to Maslow’s human hierarchy of needs. Remember those?
We decided where each motivator fell within the triangle and how they were relevant…It really was a fabulous session.
So, how do your motivators rate? Are you currently motivated at work or do you need to restructure your own motivation?
Thank you Marina for an insightful session!
