iWAM Assessment Tool

The Inventory for Work Attitude & Motivation (iWAM) is a questionnaire used for job-related activities, such as recruitment, coaching and training projects. It is based on  metaprograms, a model of cognitive thinking styles (48 parameters are measured and explained).

The iWAM Management Report identifies a person’s motivational and attitude preferences in the job context and predicts how this person will behave in various job types, such as  administrative, customer contact or managerial tasks. The iWAM Attitude Sorter predicts key motivational preferences and development areas.

JobEQ provides products that are designed to create a more emotionally intelligent workplace, which increases your ability to hire, manage and coach employees.

Not every part of HR faces the same challenges. You need flexible solutions that fit your specific needs. JobEQ’s formula for success is: RESULTS = ATTITUDE x VALUES x COMPETENCE, and a goal to improve each factor that will inevitably lead your organisation to great results.

The iWAM is a unique online assessment tool designed to measure motivational and attitudinal patterns in the work-context that directly influence:

  • What you sense and experience from the world around you
  • How you interpret what you experience
  • How you behave and communicate as a result.

In other words, the iWAM helps explain, predict, and influence performance in a certain work environment or role by assessing what you pay attention to, how you think, and how you prefer to behave in the context of work.

How is the iWAM different than other assessments?

The iWAM produces unique and powerful results by providing a look at a dimension of humans that is not available through any other assessment. It measures motivational and attitudinal patterns—a set of filters and translators that exist at the non-conscious level in humans.

Unlike tests that measure traits such as personality, the patterns assessed by the iWAM may be somewhat different in different contexts (e.g. at work, at home, or with friends), hence revealing them in the work-context is more powerful in explaining or predicting  performance than characteristics that tend to be stable across situations. (The questions and statements in the iWAM assessment keep one’s focus on the work-context throughout the entire test process.)

iWAM also explains implications of the results in work relationships and communication, and helps you determine developmental directions and methods.

Unlike other tests, the iWAM does not put people in boxes: each person has a unique fingerprint of motivational and attitudinal patterns. For each pattern measured, iWAM recommends motivational language to be used – or avoided – for effective communication.

iWAM also compares one’s results to a standard group (people who have taken the test) to provide invaluable information about how others actually see us!
