Get the best out of your team, get the best out of yourself!

Growing with colour

Customized growth modules

Our mission? The optimal co-operation of individuals, each with their own background, motivation and abilities. The dream of every manager. My Motivation Insights has developed a number of modules to make this challenge a whole lot easier. The colour profile developed and validated by us is central to all modules.

The modules are divided into three groups. At individual, team and company level. An excellent tool to gain insight into, and get a grip on, interpersonal processes. Transmitted by trained exclusive facilitators. Want to know more about the scientific evidence? Then read about it here.

Individual modules

Negotiating

Every conversation with a difference of opinion or view is basically a negotiation. Conflicts of interest with the aim of an outcome or solution in which the relationship is also maintained. In this module we show you how emotions are given a place in order to optimize the final result by further developing personal effectiveness in negotiating.

Leadership

You would like to manage from your own strength and be aware of your own motivations and those of the people with whom you work. You want to be able to switch easily between different leadership styles to achieve what you want to achieve. The module 'My Motivation Insights & Leadership' teaches you how situational leadership can be really taught.

Conflict handling

With this module, we show you how conflicts and differences of opinion can be turned into opportunities. By means of your own emotions - and that of others - staying on top and using appropriate communication styles. With the resounding end result: recognizing opportunities in conflicts in order to deal effectively with disagreements and conflict situations.

Assertiveness

The module 'My Motivation Insights & Assertiveness' makes you more visible in an organization and your abilities will be more obvious. This module provides a boost to your decisiveness. Learn to take more initiative and to monitor your limits. For example, by more often saying 'no'. Give your opinion and stand up for yourself. Without losing respect for one another.

Coaching

The module 'My Motivation Insights & Coaching' gives you all the knowledge that you need to use our colour test in your coaching practice. The best answer to the question as to how you can improve your coaching skills. We teach you how to recognize profiles faster, to activate an appropriately correct coaching style and to purposefully go to work with clients.

Burn-out prevention

Do you work as a company doctor, or in reintegration, and are you looking for a tool to gain insight into the motivations of your clients? The module 'My Motivation Insights & Burn-out Prevention' provides this knowledge. We give you clear tools to help clients gain an insight into what area provides energy, and what you can do if that energy has gone.

Team modules

Teamplot®

Each team leader knows the problem: a team 'is not functioning'. But then how do you improve the situation? My Motivation Insights has developed a strong module: Teamplot®. Learn how to analyse a team in great detail. Gain insight into the motivations and strengths of the team. Outline the pitfalls and interactions. Recognize how motivations connect to the tasks within the team.

Recruitment and selection

The module 'Recruitment and Selection' answers an important question: How do I appoint the ideal candidate in the right place? Draw up a preference profile based on job description and required skills. This saves valuable time during the selection. It works the other way around: a colour profile immediately shows whether the intrinsic motivation of a candidate fits the job requirements.

Change management

Due to the natural resistance that results from each change process, the desired result is not achieved in over 75% of cases. 'Change Management' teaches managers what works and what does not work. How communication can be applied more effectively. Make analysis that provides insight into internal cultures and how people in your organization deal with change. Follow the energy!

Getting things done

There is no standard way to act decisively. Our module 'Getting things done' offers a solution: a plan for rapid, highly targeted decisiveness. Competition comes from an unexpected quarter, customers are more demanding and there has no longer been obvious growth. The decisive route we outlined avoids all these pitfalls and makes the customer a fan.

Marketing

A marketing team leader is constantly working with both internal and external communication. How can a message be improved in a communicative way? How do you ensure connection to different generations? The module 'My Motivation Insights & Marketing' offers support, on the basis of our colour profiles, on key issues that you as a team leader encounter.

Intervention

Intervention is an active, deliberate and planned activity to improve the functioning of a team. The module 'My Motivation Insights & Intervention' analyses teams. Team processes are mapped. On this basis, a team is pointed in the right direction. By stimulating and guiding each other during conversation interventions and various forms of interviewing.

You about us: experiences with My Motivation Insights

"We use the Business Profile for our staff when it comes to personal development and to map team motivations. What is the team profile and how do I fit in as an individual?"

"We are using the color test internally and for our customers. It is a supporting tool for our job interviews. At the moment we organize meetings for team leaders and accountants which we will facilitate by using the color test."

The color profile as a tool

Explore and learn!

The My Motivation Insights Business Profile is not only used as a basis for the many different training modules. For example: to thank existing customers. Even the accountmanagers are happy, they can optimize the way of communication with their specific customers. Also at retail level can the color profile easily be used to attract customers. A sympathetic gift, with a frenzied extra for the giver, you learn to understand the motivations of your customers. Click here for an example.

Proven effectiveness

The colour profile of My Motivation Insights is no woolly fuss. It is scientifically proven, extensively tested and validated by the University of Amsterdam. This is based on the theories of Clarence W. Graves. Having done more than twenty years of research into patterns of behaviour, he has formulated his conclusions: each person has a set of motivations that complement each other, but also conflict with each other. Each individual assigns a different weight to this set of values. Almost all patterns of behaviour can be explained by these conclusions.

From this perspective, My Motivation Insights has worked carefully on an application to convert these theories into a tool to make them practical. And in particular in business. The result is our colour profile. Motivations and pitfalls are immediately clear. The possibilities to transform this knowledge into targeted solutions are legion. All these applications are collected in the My Motivation Insights business modules.

Business modules

Reorganization

If an organization, due internal/external causes, is forced to make adjustments, it will have consequences for the employees. Can they set to work at a different position within the company? Is retraining or additional training useful? Or does only the resignation option remain? On the basis of the profiles, 'Reorganization' will make the various individual options immediately clear.

Mission and vision

It may seem simple, but a clear formulation of an inspiring mission and vision is not easy. Understanding the different viewpoints of the employees and their motivation profiles is a great help. The module 'My Motivation Insights Mission and Vision' gives you the correct input to inspire employees and to take the company a step higher.

From customer to fan

A fact: satisfied customers buy more. Another fact: existing customers provide the most revenue. Look for the growth in that category by asking a simple question: “How satisfied are our customers?” On the basis of the customer profiles, the module 'From client to fan' shows the best approach to greatly improve customer relations. Sales growth by improvement rather than acquisition of customers.

Integration

Also during the integration of different business units or the integration of an acquisition, the Business Profile developed by us can be an absolute added value. The module 'My Motivation Insights & Integration' provides insight into how to map and use the strength of companies and business units to create synergy benefits.

Cascading

Publishing key messages in organizations seems easy, but it is not. Everybody listens from his or her own motivation profile, and perceives other messages than the sender intended. The module 'Cascading' shows how to put a message in the right colour and how to take into account the diversity within the organization.

The color profile as a tool: a practical example

In search of the missing link

Our color profile is a fantastic tool to stimulate commercial creativity. If you then also have a product that can easily be linked to the color profile, it becomes quite a useful brainstorming session. As was the case with Colorishoes. The connection was clear. The final outcome? We have established a link between fashion, colour and personality. Red shoes, for example, exude power. Same as the red in our profile. And so many facts have emerged which we had never thought about.

Multifunctionally usable

The colorful campaign that resulted saw not only the social media as a spearhead. Also on the shop floor, we have been able to create quite a bit of rumour around the brand. Information could be retrieved about the color profile. The focus was so great that we expanded the activities with workshops. The final result? Satisfied and engaged customers and a huge dose of extra insight into the target group.
