What makes it powerful?
It’s long been recognised that people perform best if they are motivated as well as competent – expressed another way, ‘can do’ doesn’t always equal ‘will do’. Intrinsic drivers often lie dormant within the individual until they’re triggered by an appropriate work environment; so organisations may never see the true potential of their employees.
elemental assesses what makes people tick in order to predict what will give them ‘the buzz’ in work situations. It’s not concerned with extrinsic motivators (e.g. salary and benefits), but with the kind of motivation that drives the individual from within. It will tell you the fundamentals of what you need to know about individuals – literally, what makes them tick – so it is very different from personality assessment (everyday work style).
The power of elemental is that it taps into the fundamental needs and goals that drive individuals’ performance. It then presents a comprehensive framework for placing them in the kind of work situation which will ‘fire them up’.
