Leadership tool!

ANDERS CAN’T REACH OUT TO HIS CO-WORKERS

Anders is a manager and has always been an appreciated leader in his former professional career. He is now responsible for a new team but feels as if he is unable to reach out to them. After each meeting the team agrees on what needs to be done, yet the result thereafter differ from what they decided. Why is it so?

ANDERS GETS AN EXPLANATION

Together with his team Anders is performing a MyNeeds® analysis. The result from the analysis is helpful for Anders to gain an understanding regarding his own, as well as his co-workers’ needs. Now he realizes what to do in order to be more successful.

ANDERS SUCCEEDS TO REACH OUT

Following the workshop the entire team gains understanding for each other’s needs and how it affects their cooperation. It also turns out that Anders does not have the same needs as his co-workers something that additional has complicated the situation. Today the team focuses on the receiver’s needs when they communicate, instead of targeting themselves.

HISTORY

Everything began when Desirée Rova, the founder of MyNeeds® decided to contact scientists to get the answer to ” Why do we do what we do?”.

HISTORY

“Why do we do what we do?”
That was a question I had asked myself many times.

“How come some people are delivering and some are not?”
This question I asked several hundreds of managers but no one could give me a good answer.
 To get an improved answer I therefore decided to contact some scientists.  It turned out that the reasons are because we are born with different needs we are not aware of which affects why we do what we do. This insight made me curious and anxious to find a way to identify the needs and thereby help people to both understand themselves and their surrounding better.
– Desirée Rova, founder of MyNeeds®

SCIENCE

SCIENCE

What makes MyNeeds® unique is its ability to measure individual’s unconscious psychological needs.

Personalexperten in Umeå has in cooperation with scientists at the University of Umeå developed the web-based analysis tool based on Self-Determination Theory. The two scientists Edward L Deci and Richard M Ryan have during a 30 years time period evolved SDT, Self-Determination Theory; how motivation works in reality. 

The SDT-research has identified a number of psychological needs as underlying mechanisms necessary to feel motivated.

About MyNeeds®

MyNeeds® is based on proven evidence-based motivation*. The concept helps to identify the needs of individuals.  Some of these needs may be in conflict with one another and are therefore difficult to identify and understand. We can all meet our needs in either a constructive or destructive manner, and MyNeeds® strives to increase the understanding on how to make constructive choices. The concept comprises the levels of inner awareness, team awareness, and organizational awareness, as well as reinforcing a development-oriented leadership.

The concept consists of questions, results, and feedback performed both individually and in group’s scenarios. The individual feedback offers greater understanding for decisions taken privately and at work; they explain why cooperation works better with some than with others, as well as an understanding for own and others’ abilities and potential.

MyNeeds®works in all industries and cultures and helps people to develop as well as improve relations. We as individuals become better at our tasks as well as handling assignments.  The tool also explains organizational group processes, cultures and norms.
