Understanding and Appreciating What Drives Us

Each morning we wake to take on another day. What are those driving forces that move us forward to achieve something or push us back to avoid something?

We are all unique in our blend of driving forces but there are some general traits which might help you better understand yourself or those around you.

As researched and refined by our strategic Partner – TTI Success Insights International, we can look at various elements which engage or disengage our energies.

As you can see in the graphic below our drivers have levels of intensity which equally impact how much a driver plays a part in our daily lives.


The more a wedge of the pie is filled in the more that factor drives us to engage or avoid its opposite factor.

In this case the individual is driven to be intentionally resourceful within a structured approach. They will seek opportunity which has benefit and a return on investment via proven methods of processing.  Knowing this about the individual allows the person not to end up in a work situation which for example requires them to altruistic or selfless. These would cause lots of stress. Eventually the persons’ performance would degrade and they would quit or be fired.

Although there are a multitude of factors which ultimately contribute to a persons’ success, knowing their key driving forces can help channel their energy directly into that success rather than guessing for lots of years only to possibly stumble upon it after many attempts which come up short.

Curious about what are your driving factors? Give us a call at (313) 527-7945 to discuss how we can help you and your team understand and appreciate what drive each of you.
