The DISCy Chicks admit that while DISC is our go-to assessment, we also use a companion assessment that beautifully complements the DISC behaviors assessment ...the 12 Driving Forces. This assessment measures a person's hidden drivers or what intrinsically motivates a person in life. Is it pursuit of knowledge, helping others, making money or one of the remaining nine drivers? Understanding what compels us to get out of bed as another step towards self awareness. Realizing that others are likely motivated by different conditions, great leaders learn the key motivators of employees and candidates they are considering hiring. This assessment is used by Cindy and Martha in the job benchmarking process to ensure candidates are the right fit for the role and for the culture of your company as well as team building sessions.
Listen as they walk you through all twelve of the driving forces. There are four primary motivators that truly "drive your bus" every day concerning decisions and choices you make. Then there are four situational driving forces that you use when you need them and lastly there are four indifferent motivators that you really don't care about!
Whether you are selecting new employees or using this tool for teamwork, it enables a good job fit and improved communication and understanding of others among your team! Another use of the tool is also for onboarding new employees with their manager, so they understand themselves in the context of their job and understand the behaviors and motivators of their manager and vice versa for the manager!
We'd love to get your feedback on FaceBook about the 12 Driving Forces.
