Measuring Motivation:The PIAV Assessment

When it comes to looking at the individual there is no substitute (personal bias here) for the Personal Interests, Attitudes and Values (PIAV) assessment.
It is a validated tool (based on the work of Spranger) that ranks the six common motivators we all have and measures their intensity relative to the norm or mean. It goes beyond behavioral models, and helps the leader or manager understand what moves the individual to action.
Generally speaking, we feel passionate and fulfilled when we are engaged in activities that satisfy our top two motivators, and will have feelings of indifference in re to those in fifth and sixth position. This has great significance for jobs, teams and organizational culture.
