A highly motivated workforce is the Holy Grail for any organization. And yet, for many managers and employees, a surefire method for motivating yourself or your people remains elusive.
Developed by Peter Gerrickens and Marijke Verstege, The Motivation Game uses four sets of cards: Activity Cards, Inspiration Cards, Prior Condition Cards and Limiting Belief Cards to enable teams and individuals to explore what motivates and demotivates them at work (and how to increase the former).
There are no glib answers here, rather several different methods of play for motivational teambuilding activities and personal development. Some of the motivation games use individual set(s) of cards and some of them mix and match two or even all four sets. The game recognizes that motivation, as with most workplace techniques, is intimately linked with how we perceive things, our state of mind, and the ways in which we communicate.
These cards can be used in small groups where they focus on one of the four card groups - eg

The Motivation Game consists of 140 full-colour cards and instructions for four methods of play. The cards are divided into four groups, with a blank card for each group in case you or the participants have an addition to make. The groups are:
