Leadership with the Reiss Motivation Profile®

In the Reiss Motivation Profile®,the 16 life motives that drive us are put into concrete terms -this allows the personality of the individual employee to be recorded, described and taken into account. Managers can get to know their employees and themselves better.


The use of the Reiss Motivation Profile®in leadership development offers the following options, among others:

  • A scientifically based view of human personality through the lens of motivation. The individual personality becomes describable and capturable.
  • The executive gets to know himself better in his individuality -in his potentials and also stumbling blocks.
  • The possibility of recognizing, understanding and also learning to appreciate the driving force of lifemotives in others with whom we ourselves are not so familiar.
  • In the implementation of common goals, communication and cooperation can be made more effective and joyful on the basis of the Reiss Motivation Profile®.

And that finally leads us to probably one of the most essential requirements of successful leadership -self-reflection. The question of what does this have to do with me no longer leads to despair, but follows a single purpose -to become more effective together.
