Our work: Changing mindset to transform performance

Mindset drives performance, acting as a lens through which we perceive events, influencing our emotional experience and, consequently, our behaviour.  These relationships form the basis of our learning programmes, which are designed to enhance personal, professional and organisational effectiveness.

Our map of this motivational system can help you to diagnose issues and create strategies to align mindset, experience and performance – for yourself and your people.

What’s in the Apter Toolkit?

EMotivations Card Game

A card ‘game’ that helps get to the heart of the issue in a live coaching situation, identify helpful and unhelpful emotions, understand the motivational drivers, and develop strategies to ensure to resolve issues that create stress or hinder optimal performance.

Includes emotions cards and a process to develop appropriate strategies.

Apter Motivational Styles Inventory


The Apter Motivational Styles Inventory is a valid, reliably psychometric profile that measures the amount of time spent in different motivational states.


It helps facilitate change by identifying the mental states that drive emotions, behaviour and performance, enabling clients to find ways of being more effective as individuals or teams.


Leadership Microclimate Inventory 

Our microclimate tool measures the extent to which leaders create the conditions for people to perform individually and collectively – by finding different ways of motivating and enabling them.

The Leadership Microclimate Inventory comes in 180 and 360 format, and requires additional training, following certification in the AMSP and emotions cards.
