"We can influence each other only by connecting with who we already are...We encourage others to change only if we honor who they are now."

Margaret J. Wheatley and Myron Kellner-Rogers

The four Essential Motivator patterns are patterns of organization. They have been recognized for over twenty-five centuries and their existence is supported by research. Knowing these patterns allows you to know yourself and understand others at a very deep level.

Like trees in a forest we are all unique and yet interconnected. We are self-Organizing systems within larger self-organizing systems. For survival, each system must remain separate and at the same time be connected with other systems. We must know our own identity, maintain our uniqueness and yet be an integral part of the larger community.

These patterns of organization are natural organizing principles that show up in all levels of living systems. Understanding Yourself and Others™: Exploring Essential Motivators relates these patterns to human interaction. When you know how you tend to e organized, it is easier to work with that organizing force and to even go beyond it.

Knowing your Essential Motivator pattern can help you be...

— more conscious and in control of your life

— more responsible to yourself, to others and to institutions

— more connected and real

— more independent and free
