    1. Loved how accurate the assessment is. I’ll definitely be referring back to this book over some time to stay on track at work. It feels good to put an identity to my work style and use its motivators to move off of

    2. There is a difference between motivation and strengths. Just because we are good at something doesn't mean it will fulfill our deepest desires. Through an inventory and exercises, this book led me to some new insights about life and career.

    3. As a member of the genre of self discovery books associated with a quiz, this book is quite good. The premise of this book is that what motivates a person may not be the same as what they are good at, so understanding motivation is just as important as understanding strengths. Like most in this genre, the book itself is nothing spectacular: background about the assessment plus detailed descriptions of different motivators and the profiles that they are grouped into. This book does get some credi [...]

    4. A great read on motivation including research and categorical types we identify with. The book includes a self assessment that ranks the 23 workplace motivators and 5 motivator identities. The book then dives into describing the 23 workplace motivators and 5 identities providing a workbook section to sculpt your behavior. One of my favorite quotes from the book is, "Many of the happiest people we've spoken with didn't find their bliss down a new path; they made course corrections on the path the [...]

    5. Recommended by a friend. It's similar to many other books in this field, which are helpful but rarely groundbreaking. That being said, I did find a few of the distinctions between similar motivators really helpful in determining and clarifying what makes me thrive in different work environments.

    6. Interesting read and great assessment tool included. I was able to read this book and learned about motivators rather than just flip through to what my assessment revealed. I would love to drop this with my team!

    7. How did I come to read itCame across this wonderful book called 'What Motivates Me - put your passions to work' from Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton. It was suggested by my mentor for a read as he thought its in the same line with what he is telling me. Purchase it from or I can rent this to youWhy should you read itWe are motivated by different things. We shine through our work when we are spending our time with what motivates us. Unfortunately people spend time on not what that motivates the [...]

    8. The book and the assessment which is included are valuable not simply because they are related to work, but because they are related to our ability to value and feel motivated by our work. In a world where often our employers may tend to view fiscal benefits such as raises as the best way to motivate employees, this book and assessment readily illustrates that for many people, money is not a primary motivator. Further, by organizing people into broad categories such as achievers, caregivers, etc [...]

    9. I was very disappointed by this book. My primary complaint is that there is 1 code to take the Motivators test (the test the entire book is based on). I got this out of the library, so I could not use the code to take the test, nor can any other patrons hoping to use this book to help them in their careers. In addition, if you did buy this book, you still can't use it with your team, they would each have to buy their own copy! It just seems a little money hungry to me. Why not include a free ver [...]

    10. For anyone who is loves the Strengthsfinders books, I highly recommend this book. With the on-line assessment, you not only find out individual motivators,but how your individual motivators form an identity. The book assists in you "job sculpting" - figuring out what kinds of activities motivate a person, and offers insights and suggestions on how to increase the amount of activities and jobs that you find professionally motivating.I found this book highly interesting, and its offered me additio [...]

    11. The assessment alone is worth the cost of the book. You receive a full report with all 23 motivators. If you've taken the strengths finder you'll remember you only get your top 5. The report that is generated is a great premise before diving into the book. I was really impressed at how Gostick and Elton laid out the book to explain how to use your knowledge of "what drives me" and practical ways to apply it to a job where might be less than engaged. It's not always time to head for the exits and [...]

    12. I would go with 3.5 if that was an option, giving it the benefit of the doubt for now, will try some of the suggestions and then possibly update this review. This book is probably more beneficial to a person who hasn't done much work with self-awareness. Since I had (already knew I'm an ENFP and enneagram type 2-the Giver and have done a strengths finder assessment) there wasn't a whole lot of new news here for me other than the idea of job sculpting rather than finding a different job.

    13. This is the baby of The Desire Map and the StrengthsFinder test. I found it interesting, though I wish there was a free version of the test online since I checked this out from the library and the code had already been used. I would be curious to have my employees to take it because I think it would be helpful to know as a supervisor/coach. It was also helpful to realize how much the motivator "friendship" plays into my strengths and weaknesses and frustrations at work.

    14. Sadly, I felt like this one was a waste of my time: a book that could have been expressed in poster format. The test included was somewhat useful (and why the book is getting two stars instead of one), and while it didn't really give me any new information about myself, it did make some things clear. Read this one as a requirement for an MBA class.

    15. Insightful. Included test to determine what motivates you at work. Very accurate. I got learning :) Gives you suggested steps to achieve more of what you need to be motivated and engaged at work.

    16. I read a good chunk of it for a college class but, what we needed the book for was the code inside.

    18. Really made me think about what I should be doing

    19. I like it for the test to discover my motivators. You could spend $40 and do the test and get the results online but the book was less expensive Also, the examples of people who have applied changes to their work/jobs were useful. I'm glad to know what motivates me and how I am receiving the satisfaction I need and also what to look for in a new job.
