GMI considers what an individual chooses to do rather more than what they have a basic need for. GMI looks at how much endeavour the individual will put into doing something and for how long. Rather than being concerned with the fundamental needs of the lower tiers of Maslow’s hierarchy, satisfying safety and hunger GMI considers motivational drivers such as Power, Relationships and Achievement, very much more oriented towards the social motives identified by David McClelland. GMI reviews aspects of work that are sought out by individuals, e.g. practical, investigative, degree of security or tenure.
GMI is a highly reliable and valid measure of motivation. It is geared specifically towards application in the workplace. It is as useful to an individual as it is to an organisation, providing vital data to support decisions about career path, whether at the outset of that pathway or at points along it. It adds significant value to any assessment or subsequent coaching intervention GMI is a vital part of the jigsaw for ensuring the right people are in the right jobs.
