1 2011 Dr. Mary Kay Whitaker Need Satisfaction is Directly Related to Motivation The purpose of this Motivation Checklist is for you, as a leader, to proactively uncover what the people on your team need to be successful. Your team members motivation to perform at a high level depends upon you providing the correct components of motivation that sparks action. Clear motives, or components, motivate people to take action; the higher the level of performance desired, the clearer the motives must be. MOTIVATION CHECKLIST This Motivation Checklist will help you realize that motivating others they way you are motivated will not meet the needs of anyone except yourself. The key is to think about what makes the other person tick. This Checklist will identify the needs of those that are not meeting your expectations. After you are finished, a solution will emerge that you can implement today. Let s get started! Steps for Completing the Checklist (see the examples that are included) Identify an individual that you would like to see boost their performance Honestly answer the 28 questions on the following pages with that person in mind Tally the results on the Motivation Checklist Scoring Form Follow the directions and examples on the Motivation Checklist Example (pages 6-9) Develop a Motivation Plan to follow that helps motivate the person starting today 1

2 M O T I V AT I O N C H E C K L I S T This checklist is to help you as a leader assess the motivation level of an individual team member or department depending on your objectives. To help sort out your thoughts on how to motivate others, the checklist is divided into components to help you determine what solutions you need to put in place to achieve a higher level of productivity.

4 M O T I V AT I O N C H E C K L I S T S C O R I N G F O R M The first step to interpreting the results of the Motivation Checklist is to summarize the results. Transfer the score of each question to the table below. Next, add the scores in each column to get a total for each motivational component.
