Revealing the motivation to act

Use this conversation kit to prepare for a development conversation. Help your team member reveal the ‘why’ for themselves to motivate them to change and develop.

People need a motivating reason to develop. The ‘why’. To truly motivate someone it needs to be their ‘why’.

The why is driven by someone’s vision and what is dissatisfying them. As a leader, you can help your team members to tune into this why to motivate them to invest in their development.

Ultimately, the motivation to focus on development is an intrinsic drive. It is difficult, if not impossible to force it on someone. The conversation kit is designed to help you as a leader motivate a team member by revealing their why to them.
