Motivation, like personality, differs from person to person. Unlike personality which is fixed, motivation is fluid. Mojo identifies which of the 9 motivators are most important to individual employees and your organisation as a whole, at any time. It measures how well these motivations are being satisfied. Your managers are able to use this insight and mojo's reward strategies to optimise the motivation and performance of their teams.
Of the nine motivators, mojo identifies which are the most influential in each employee's life at a given time. They do fluctuate. Priorities can change over time. The Builder can become the Searcher.
External changes can influence an employee's motivation. At a time of economic instability, for example, the Defender will likely rise in importance.
Understanding the needs of each employee helps you enhance the dynamics and co-operation in your teams.
Tracking the changes in these needs helps you anticipate issues and tailor strategies.

Mojo is a powerful tool with huge strategic value. It uniquely helps individuals, managers and their teams understand, measure and track what motivates them. We’ve seen significant shifts in leadership impact, engagement, wellbeing and productivity from upskilling people around motivation and rolling out the mojo dashboard. Holding everyone to account every three months to check in with their motivations has been a game changer.
How to create a mojo map
Everything a user needs is within the mojo platform itself. Users create their mojo map (a self-inventory survey) each quarter. This enables them - and their manager - to be able to track their motivation satisfaction levels. Regular mapping is important as this helps to foster open and transparent employee/manager relationships. Issues and improvements can be tackled sooner rather than later. Taking a map is easy. It can be completed in about 5 minutes, on any device.
Reading a mojo map – top three motivators, mojo score, risk index, cluster analysis
After mapping your mojo, the results appear right away. Employee's can see their top three motivators (and the bottom one). They can also see their mojo score (out of 100%), risk index (which shows their attitude to risk) and the cluster analysis (which signals if the employee is more focused on relationships, achievements or growth).
Ranking each motivator – individual rankings, levels and satisfaction scores
Rank displays each motivator in order of importance to the individual. Level is the score of importance out of 40. The higher the score, the more powerful the motivator. Anything above the top pink line on the bar chart is of great importance to the employee. Anything below the bottom pink line is unimportant. Motivation satisfaction is a score out of 10. This shows how well each need is being met. Numbers in brackets are the scores from the previous map.
Trends and history analytics
At a glance, employees can see how their mojo score is changing over time. We also track changes in the rank of the motivators and how well they are being satisfied. In this way, trends and patterns can be identified and acted upon.
Mojo is a continuous improvement tool and the mojo action plan is at the heart of this. Managers are encouraged to conduct one-to-one reviews with their team members to discuss the quarterly map results. Together they can create action plans to increase motivation and satisfaction.
Team and organisation-wide reporting
As well as focussing on individual results, mojo produces team and organisation dashboards. Team dashboards allow the organisation to be sliced and diced into any number of team views. They are a great way to see the most important motivators, see who might clash with whom, and see where there may be gaps in a team's motivations. The team satisfaction view shows how well each team member's motivations are being satisfied and identifies immediate opportunities for managers to make improvements.
When it comes to motivation, not only is it hard to identify exactly WHAT motivates us, but it's tricky to track how our motivations change over time. That's where mojo comes into its own. This easy to use tool quickly shows all of this info on a dashboard - and, even better, it shows it for the whole team. That's useful for an individual, but game-changing for the team leader. I cannot recommend mojo highly enough.
If you have lots of frontline employees without regular access to a computer, then it’s no problem—mojo is mobile enabled. Employees can take a mojo map using a mobile device, view their dashboard, and perform most other tasks that can be completed using a computer.
As the world continues to change so does the challenge of attracting and retaining talent. Mojo is the perfect tool to set businesses apart from their competitors, empower your people and achieve industry leading levels of productivity.
