Using a questionnaire, it analyses the 16 life motives and their characteristics and thus provides information about the inner driving forces. It can be used individually or in a team to strengthen self-reflection as a basis for successful change processes, the targeted development of needs and challenges for team members and generally for improving cooperation and reflection in the team.
