A motivational check-in

Listed below are a number of factors that may affect your attitude and your motivation levels in your next job.

Have a look at them, and rank the 5 most important to you personally now. In ranking these factors, please assign 1 against the factor that is most important in making you feel motivated, 2 against the next, and so on up to 5.

When you have rated the factors in order of importance for yourself, rate to what extent you are satisfied with the motivational factors you chose (5 being ‘really satisfied’ and 1 being ‘really dissatisfied’).

Knowing your top 5 will give you some idea about what to focus on in your next move.
