The Inventory for Work Attitude and Motivation (iWAM) is an online questionnaire which helps an organisation identify an individual’s attention filters and cognitive styles, also called metaprograms. It is not a personality profile.
With the iWAM, one can predict what motivates a person, their work attitude, how they prefer to communicate, and how they prefer to act in their work context. iWAM allows the organisation to take into account the individual preferences and to value each person for their strengths. Using iWAM will help an organization make better use of the human potential of its workforce.
Just because an individual can perform a competency there is no guarantee that they will be motivated to do so on an ongoing basis. For example, follow the policy and procedure of the company and a specific role. iWAM will detail what an individual will find comfortable and enjoyable at work. When there is a natural fit between work demands and the individual’s motivations, there is a higher likelihood of excellent and sustained performance as well as longevity in the position.
