Supporting and Motivating Learners
Motivational Maps® give us insight into not only how we manage and react to change but our preferred language and learning styles too. Understanding what motivates someone enables you to plan teaching, project work and home study to maximise an individual’s engagement. Knowing if the learner prefers detailed instructions and time for thought (the Defender Motivator), working with others (Friend Motivator) or working on their own and managing how they complete the project (Spirit Motivator), enables you to work with them to achieve their goals.
We provide feedback sessions to explain the report results and develop your understanding of the different motivators. We work with you to develop strategies that can easily be put in place that will not only improve the young person’s motivation but also improve your relationship with them. You will understand how the young person prefers to learn and be communicated with, and, importantly, how they will respond to change.
The insight gained from understanding their motivators helps young people when applying for jobs. In addition to understanding the type of work that will motivate them, they can also consider which type of organisations would support them to be motivated. The understanding and knowledge they gain helps them with job applications, and interviews, enabling them not only to provide information about how they work but also how the organisation can manage them to get the best out of them.
