IWAM Leadership Assessment

Reach your full potential and greatly increase your self-awareness with an assessment that reveals the key motivators that determine your leadership success.
How You Succeed – The iWAM Assessment (Work, Attitude & Motivation) is not like traditional personality assessments! Clients say it is more like a fingerprint – specific and much more revealing! It reveals how you are naturally motivated to achieve goals, how you make decisions, how you prefer to interact with others, how you communicate and much more!
What You Will Learn – Studies show motivation accounts for up to 60 percent of your performance as a leader, and iWAM helps you understand how you are naturally motivated to achieve by measuring dozens of Meta Programs. Meta Programs are behavioral filters that manage, guide and direct your thinking – they determine all sorts of things, such as how you are convinced / persuaded, how you prefer to communicate, how you prefer to interact with others and how you make decisions. These Programs also determine how you are fulfilled, how you are motivated to achieve at work and much more. By understanding these Programs, you can more easily improve your performance, leadership, communication skills and rapport capabilities. In addition, iWAM measures the seven behavioral patterns common to successful leaders. We can compare your results to these patterns to determine future growth opportunities and define a more targeted coaching game plan to help you achieve your leadership goals.
