Deep down, what motivates you? What aspects of your life are most meaningful to you? What goals drive your behavior? Professor Steven Reiss answered these questions in a unique way – scientifically. He asked thousands of people from different cultures and diverse backgrounds about their intrinsic motives. This research produced the Reiss Motivation Profile®, the first comprehensive, standardized measure of what motivates an individual. Reiss’s theory of motivation has been applied to training leaders and reducing conflict in business, enabling athletes to achieve peak performance through understanding their tendencies under the stress of competition, assessing motivational reasons for academic underachievement, and identifying the value differences that underlie chronic conflicts in relationships. Join me in understanding the 16 basic principles that drive us all, and gain a better understanding of why people do the things they do. Apply these principles in your daily life and change everything for yourself!
