Key Developmental Experiences
The degree to which individuals are motivated by work-related status and extrinsic rewards. High scorers seek to climb to higher levels of visibility and responsibility within an organization, achieve a high income and acquire a high degree of influence. Low scorers are driven by intrinsic interest in one’s work and prefer to avoid high visibility/high pressure job roles.
The degree to which individuals are motivated by achieving a balance between work and personal life. High scorers prefer work-related flexibility, broadly defined self-development and prefer to avoid high stress life-defining job roles. Low scorers place career as top life-priority and a primary component of identity.
The degree to which individuals prefer work-related interdependence, group decision making, group-based goal setting and pursuit. High scorers prefer to be part of teams, build consensus, share responsibility and rely on social behavior for work-related success. Low scorers prefer work characterized by limited reliance on social behavior, independence and being primarily responsible for his/her own work and decisions.
