The DISC Motivation Spectrum

Exploring the key motivational factors in a personality

The Motivation Spectrum is a specialized Discus report focused on helping you to understand and develop a candidate's core motivations. Based on their DISC results, it looks in detail at the factors that help to energize and enthuse an individual, as well as considering how other factors can lead to demotivation.

The Motivation Spectrum will even investigate a candidate's attitude in their current role, and look at features that may be affecting their motivation in that role in a positive or a negative way.

The Motivation Spectrum works by putting together an analysis of eight interrelated motivating factors and report in depth on each of these, and the ways they are relevant to any individual candidate. These motivational factors are derived directly from a candidate's DISC scores, so a Motivation Spectrum is available for any Discus profile.

Any of the eight motivation factors might be a strong motivator - or a demotivator - depending on a person's unique personality and their current role. The Motivation Spectrum report will help you to discover how they are likely to come into play in different situations, and how you can use them to help build motivation based on an individual personality style.
