The nine motivators

The nine motivators

To improve an employee's motivation, you first need to understand which of the intrinsic motivators are important to them.

There are nine motivators, as follows:

  • Relationship motivators: Defender, Friend, Star
  • Achievement motivators: Builder, Defender, Expert
  • Growth motivators: Creator, Searcher, Spirit

Mojo identifies which of these are most important to individual employees, teams, and organisations at any time. It measures how well these motivations are being satisfied; and then managers are able to use this insight and mojo's reward strategies to optimise the motivation and performance of their teams.
