What makes you tick?
Our happiness, the success that we experience in our work and our sense of fulfilment strongly depends on the extent to which our job fulfils our inner drive. By increasing our self-awareness with regards to what drives us in our work, we become conscious of our subconsciousness and learn what we need to be happy and to be able to perform at our best. It improves our ability to create and to enhance a situation at work, or to find a (new) job that fulfils our inner inner drive and that stimulates us to get the best out of ourselves.
Brain studies reveal that people have 5 overarching motivational drivers: Security, Relatedness, Autonomy (independence and personal growth), Status and Fairness. Situations that fulfil these drivers provide trigger the approach response (engage): They provide us a sense of fulfilment and motivate us to perform and to collaborate the best we can. Situations that keep us from fulfilling our inner drive trigger the avoid response,: They cause demotivation and make us hit the brake (disengage). We all have different motivational drivers. The combination of our genes, experiences and the current situation we are in determine which of these 5 fundamental needs are dominant and govern our emotions, motivation and our behaviour at work.
Based on these improved findings with regards to what makes us tick in our work, we developed an innovative online test that reveals which of the 5 intrinsic drivers and 27 related values motivate us the most. The test helps us to control our emotions, motivation and behaviour at work and enables us to create a situation at work, or to find a (new) job that fulfils our inner drive and that provide us with a sense of fulfilment (purpose).
