Become a Certified Reiss Motivation Profile® Master

The Reiss Motivation Profile® (RMP) is a standardized, comprehensive assessment of a person’s needs, values, desire, interests, motives, and life goals. It simply explains the individual’s motivation driving someone to do what they do. The RMP is based on the Science of Motivation® developed by the renowned psychological researcher, Professor Steven Reiss, Ph.D.. The RMP provides insightful data allowing others to predict with some degree of accuracy how someone will react to different situations, people and roles.

The RMP for Business is used in executive, professional development, career, and life coaching, team building, conflict resolution, leadership training, employee engagement and satisfaction/retention, role compatibility/competency models, succession planning, advertising and marketing and more!

The RMP for Business must be administered by a Certified Reiss Motivation® Master. A Certified RMP Master may purchase, resell, and use the RMP for Business in North America. International RMP Masters may use the RMP in their country of residence and in other countries with the permission and support of our global RMP partners. The RMP Master’s Certification never expires.

16 Basic Desires of Human Motivation

16 Basic Human Desires

Scientifically-Derived and Academically Validated

Professor Steven Reiss, Ph.D., conducted scientific surveys and then used factor analytic methods to delineate 16 human needs. He and independent researchers, notably Ken Olson, Ph.D., then validated each of the 16 needs against personality measures (e.g., Big 5 scales, other motivation scales, Anxiety Sensitivity Index, romance scales) and as an indicator of behavior (e.g., interest in college major, club memberships, television viewing habits, participation in sports, participation in humanitarian causes). Reiss reported his work in 17 scientific journal articles — three published in prestigious APA journals — and four books. Since then, others have published books on the RMP. In addition to the United States, the RMP for Business is widely used in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Norway, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, and Taiwan. Further, increased adoptions have been reported in Curacao, Belgium, India, Italy, Netherlands, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates. Practitioners usually can “see” the validity of the tool. In other words, validity is apparent and is not limited to statistics.
