Motivation questionnaire


For the first time, the motive-related indicators for leadership potential are identified (influence and performance high; fear of failure and loss of control low). Transparency about professional basic motives – hardly recognizable in interviews or in assessment centers.

The questions are presented in a written form and consist of 104 self-statements of the participant. The participant indicates on a 4-level rating scale how strongly the statements apply to him.
