This standard course 10-part survey can also be custom tailored with additional questions depending on your organization’s needs.

Example of barriers to motivation diagnosed in a hearing session

• Dissatisfaction with the work-life balance (8), unable to take vacation days (2), want to spend more time with family (1)
• Unfair distribution of work (8), often stay late working OT while colleagues clock-out at 6 p.m. (2)
• A handful of team members always leave early, requiring the rest to pick up the slack and make personal sacrifices
• A heavy task load makes it difficult to focus on sales (4)
• Proposed automation of work (5) and a division of responsibilities (3)
• Frustration with OT load and compensation (4)
• Problematic lack of clear sales processes and an inability to articulate supposed sales workflow in concrete terms
• Data indicated time spent on sales was inversely proportional to revenue, suggesting a more diverse delegation of tasks would boost sales efficiency

Example M-Map Report (Motivation Score)

Strengths

■ Lateral communication (with colleagues): 5

• Strong ties both within and across teams
• However, barriers to communication between leadership and teams hinder employee understanding/trust

Weaknesses

■ Vertical communication (between managers and subordinates): 2

  • Potentially held back by deference to leadership

■ Understanding of vision, mission, and values: 1

• Disconnect between performance evaluations and vertical communication: Lackluster communication leads employees to misconstrue instructions, resulting in poor performance reviews and frustration in spite of diligent work.
• The team is generally aware of the vision/mission, but does not accurately understand or else does not truly connect with the vision/mission in a meaningful way.
