Do you need to make a decision but are you unsure about the effects on your motivation? Do you want to know what motivates your colleagues? Do you want to hire a new team member and do you need to know what makes her tick? It’s time to play Moving Motivators!
This exercise was invented to reflect on personal motivation and how it is affected by organizational change. The Moving Motivators exercise is based on the ten intrinsic desires that were derived from the works of Daniel Pink, Steven Reiss, and Deci/Ryan.
The original version of Moving Motivators is intended to be played by two people. If you have a group of more people, ask them to self-organize in pairs. In each pair the game is played twice: once for each person. While one person plays, the other observes.
