The Individual Motivational Profile™ (IMP™)
The way we are each motivated is as unique as our finger prints. There are some recognisable patterns, but in the end, we all want different things.
It’s no wonder that simplistic, one-size-fits-all and slogan-driven approaches to motivating people rarely work. One person’s motivation is another person’s insult.
IMPs™ treat people like people. They tell stories and have a conversation about things they’ve loved doing. We work with them to find the pattern in the stories, finding those deep drives and desires that have been an important part of who they are all of their lives. The things that won’t change much, just because the organisation changes.
When you understand what people really want, you know how to help them to be motivated.
The IMP™ process now has its own IMP™ website, and is available free of charge under a creative-commons agreement.
