What Is Your MO for Completing Your Chosen Goal or Task?

Welcome to the Motivational Outlook Assessment!

Do you know why you are motivated to achieve a challenging task or goal in your life—or not?

Many people I speak with aren’t sure – and neither are those who try to lead them. 

Both are problems!

We developed this assessment to help you get to the bottom of the type of motivation you have on a certain task or goal.  It is an extension of my book, Why Motivating People Doesn't Work...and What Does: The New Science of Leading, Energizing, and Engaging, and although it is easy to take (5 minutes or so), it is a sophisticated diagnostic to help you identify your Motivational Outlook for achieving a certain task or goal you are working on. 

In the assessment you’ll be asked to respond to a variety of questions. Please keep in mind that the final section of this assessment is to help with demographic research and is not an attempt to gather personal information.

After you finish the assessment I will email you with your results and you will have the option to join my newsletter, which will provide you with exclusive content and resources to help you on your professional journey moving forward.

Thanks for your participation!
