Past successes as a guarantee for your future

Knowing that something's not quite right in the work setting you're in, but not knowing what exactly. Feeling that you are doing your work on willpower and your energy is leaking away. Lying in bed at night, thinking: "Is this it?".

For people who are struggling with this, the SIMA Motivation Analysis is a perfect tool to get back on track quickly. It is often used to answer questions about career and meaning.

Clear insight

SIMA means System for Identifying Motivated Abilities. The SIMA Motivation Analysis consists of a homework assignment combined with an in-depth interview. Illustration Purpose or result - all.png This is followed by an analysis and a debriefing. SIMA provides clear insight into your motivation:

  • Motives
  • Topics
  • Working conditions
  • Working relationships
  • Skills

Connecting with your natural inclinations

SIMA looks at experiences from the past that gave you pleasure and success, and exponentiates the common theme to the present. SIMA's starting point is simple: if you have enjoyed helping people all your life, for example, or if you have been trying to figure out something complicated in detail, or taking the initiative, it will not be much different now.

By aligning with your natural preferences in behaviour, interests and skills, you blossom as a person and grow as an employee. You experience more relaxation, success and happiness.

Frequently asked questions about SIMA Motivation Analysis

What is the difference between career research and SIMA?

A career test or career research often consists of multiple choice questions. A result then rolls out, and that's it. SIMA is autobiographical, because it is based on past success experiences rather than your thinking about what suits you. The SIMA Motivation Analysis includes an interview and follow-up interview. So you go deeper and progress further.

How does the SIMA Motivation Analysis work?

We always go through the analysis in a fixed order.

  1. You fill in an activity list. In it you describe 8 activities from your life that you have done with great pleasure and in which you were successful.
  2. I interview you about your activities.
  3. I analyse what you wrote and said, and make a draft report.
  4. We have a follow-up interview in which we discuss the draft report together.
  5. Delivery of the final report. This report is extensive and concrete, so that you can go ahead with it yourself: taking application steps, for example. Sometimes the report is the start of a coaching trajectory in order to realise a career switch.

What does the motivation profile say?

  1. Your main motivation: that which you would like to do best in every situation in your life.
  2. Your motivated skills. You use these naturally, when you do something you enjoy doing. For example, asking questions, analysing, working with your hands, consulting or teaching.
  3. Your motivated subjects. These are subjects you become interested in again and again, or that you like to get involved in. For example logistics and supply, human behaviour, policy, technology or ideals.
  4. Your motivated working conditions. These are (working) circumstances in which you perform at your best. For example, you like to work in a team, on a project basis, or to meet someone else's needs.
  5. Your motivated working relationships. This is the role you naturally assume in relation to people in your environment. For example, you take the lead quickly, or you are very focused on taking care of people in your team.

Who is the SIMA Motivation Analysis for?

Most people come to me for the SIMA motivation analysis following a career question. For example:

  • A starter discovered that the study she did for her father's sake did not result in work she liked to do. Her work exhausted her, and gave her no satisfaction. The motivational analysis showed her that another industry was better for her.
  • A forty-year-old noticed that he did too many things in his work that he didn't like. But exactly what he missed... That's what he wanted to find out, so that he could take hold of his job. The motivation analysis showed that he used to like to do theatre. In his current work, he missed that stage. That turned out to be easy to add. Instead of e-mailing his reports to his client, he started presenting them.
  • A woman in her mid-30s was looking for more meaning. She had a lot of experience in the technical sector, but was curious if she could earn her living in healthcare (where her heart lay). The motivation analysis showed her that a small switch in the type of projects in the technical sector already reduced her urge for healthcare. A career switch turned out not to be necessary.

How do I use the motivation profile in practice?

Are you considering a new job, a new project, or career switch? Compare your options with your motivation profile. If you can function in harmony with your motivation profile, you will do your job with enthusiasm, interest and energy. If you don't, you may remain frustrated, bored and ineffective.
