Other question ideas

When you are creating your Motivation assessment, here are some additional questions you may want to consider. These won't apply in every case, but should give you some ideas as you build out your form.
  • How do you typically respond to failure or setbacks?

    • This reflection can provide insights into individuals' resilience and coping mechanisms. Understanding this can help coaches to build strategies that align with their natural responses, increasing the likeliness of success.
  • How do you celebrate your successes?

    • This can highlight how individuals acknowledge and reward their achievements. If the celebration is lacking, it could be a potential area of focus to increase motivation.
  • What was a recent challenge you overcame and how did you do it?

    • This question helps to identify an individual’s problem-solving skills and what motivates them to overcome challenges. Coaches can use this information to build on these existing skills and motivations.
  • What are your personal passions outside of work?

    • Understanding individuals' passions can provide a broader perspective on what motivates them. These could potentially be leveraged to increase motivation in a professional context.
  • If you could change one thing about your current profession, what would it be?

    • This question can shed light on potential factors causing dissatisfaction or demotivation. These insights can then be addressed directly in the coaching sessions.
  • How do you perceive the concept of work-life balance, and how would you rate your current balance?

    • Insights from this question can highlight if imbalance is a potential demotivating factor. This can then be addressed in coaching sessions.
  • What do you consider your greatest strength and your greatest weakness?

    • These insights can help coaches understand where individuals may require more support (weaknesses), and where they can leverage existing strengths to increase motivation and success.
  • In what areas would you like to grow professionally and personally?

    • This can help to identify long-term goals and aspirations, helping to build motivation strategies that draw on these desired outcomes.
  • How do you usually handle stress and pressure?

    • This can provide insights into individuals' stress management techniques. If these techniques are ineffective or unhealthy, it could be a focus area in the coaching sessions.
  • What does an ideal day look like for you?

    • This can help identify what an individual's priorities and preferences are, which can then be incorporated into personalized strategies for increasing motivation.

Things to consider

  1. Simplicity - Keep the form as simple and concise as possible. Long and complex forms can deter users. Each question should be clear and to the point.
  2. User-Friendly Design - Make sure the form is easy to navigate. Use clear headings for each section and consider using progress indicators if the form is long.
  3. Privacy Consideration - Be aware of the sensitivity of the information you're asking for. Clearly state how the data will be used and stored for the user's peace of mind.
  4. Mobile-Friendly - Many users fill out forms on mobile devices. Ensure your form is responsive and looks good on various screen sizes.
  5. Clear Instructions - Provide clear instructions for each question, especially where scales or multiple choices are involved. This helps avoid misunderstandings and inaccurate responses.
  6. Validation - Use HTML5 validation to check that users have filled out required fields correctly before they submit the form. This reduces the risk of errors and incomplete responses.
  7. Feedback and Confirmation - After the user submits the form, provide a confirmation message or email. This reassures them that their responses have been received.
