Measuring motivation


Last Published  01 August 2012

This tool involves a group activity with a manager and all of their team, lasting approximately 30 to 40 minutes with a team of six to nine people. The tool looks at issues affecting poor motivation and what can be done to increase motivation.

The M&M graph is a flexible way of reviewing the morale/motivation of an individual or a team over any selected period of time. Many managers have found this to be a useful review tool to include in their weekly/monthly team meetings. It provides a simple, visual means of displaying how someone's morale/motivation varies throughout the period of time selected.

Tool aims
  • To explore how the morale and motivation of all team members varied throughout the course of the previous month. 
  • To decide on what actions to take in order to improve the team’s motivation over the coming month.
