Now That's What I Call Coaching 8 - Motivational Maps 2024 Edition

Sleeve Notes

In Coaching, knowing what motivates people is one of the key factors in developing an understanding of clients.

Motivations increase and decrease throughout our lives, depending on what is important at the time, there are some of course that can remain a constant if they form part of our values and beliefs.

Generations can also play a part in motivations, especially in the workplace. Over the next few years, it's possible we could have a workforce consisting of all 6 generation types from 'The Silent Generation' (Approx 1928 - 45) & 'Baby Boomers' (1945 - 64) to Generation Z

(1997 - 2000's) & Generation Alpha (2010's - 2025).

So it's more important now than ever to understand what motivates us and others around us, so we can live and work together in a productive and harmonious way.

With my support, a Motivational Map is an accurate way to help you determine...

...where your Motivations are now and what's important to you.

...If you are getting enough of what makes you happy.

...if you are not, creating actions to redress the balance
