Motivational Maps

Organisations and leaders are increasingly asking how do we better adapt to empower and grow motivated teams. Do you know what truly motivates you, your team and/or organisation? Most individuals have some idea about what motivates them and with Motivational Maps can gain further insight into the power and impacts of their motivation. Citron Consulting is an Accredited and Licensed Practitioner of the Motivational Map Solutions.

We offer individual maps, team map workshops and an individual motivation workshops.

“Motivational maps have proved to be quite accurate regarding personal profiles and have given my managers and I an excellent insight into what motivates our teams. We have used the motivational maps to place stretch targets into staff performance plans, for both development and incentive. Given the maps highlight different profiles (defenders, creators, searchers) we are now considering how best to use the maps to effect major change across the next 12-18 months and we are using them to identify characteristics we will look for when recruiting new staff.” Robert O’Meara, Chief Finance Officer of Austrade

Each map and its debriefing session helps unlock the keys to:

  • High performance and leadership development
  • Hidden tensions between motivators in individuals and teams
  • Tailored training and customisation
  • Career planning
  • Strategy planning and implementation
  • Talent acquisition and on boarding

Each map takes only 10 minutes to complete online and you receive a 14 page full diagnostic report on what motivates you and how motivated you currently are. Each report contains 9 motivational reward strategy ideas and is extremely practical and revealing.

Change Management and Innovation

Citron Consulting will help you implement, deliver and debrief what empowers motivation and sustainable change. Most teams are assembled on the basis of relevant and complementary skill sets; what motivates the individuals in the team is often not considered at all. Indeed, conflicts between individuals are often ascribed to ‘personality’ clashes. However, these clashes may well be, and often are, motivational in origin.

With the right approach and proven methodologies you can generate even more productivity and innovation. These enhance possibilities and empower performance for innovation. Motivational Maps are so accurate they provide incredible insights into what corporations, teams, as well organisations and you might really care about – getting things done with ease and increased purpose.

Training and Debriefing

We offer workshops to help you introduce Motivational Maps across your teams and organisation, into your workplace culture and performance talent programs. When we look at what lifts productivity it is often the simple but complicated differences between motivated employees.

As a Licensed Accredited Practitioner, Citron Consulting can deliver and debrief individual as well as provide team training and organisation maps.

Our workshops are designed to be easily integrated within your existing employee engagement initiatives to drive innovation and change.

Motivation Matters Workshops

Even the most skilled and experienced person will not be a peak performer if they are not motivated. Our performance at work is a product of our skills and abilities as well as our level of motivation. But what motivates us to get up every morning and do the job we have chosen? Motivational Maps™ is a tool that can help us to gain a deeper understanding into why we do the things we do, and can help us find ways to increase levels of motivation in ourselves and others.

Case Studies

Case Studies on how the Motivational maps have impacted on the workplace can be read here.


Simone is one of those rare HR specialists, who is able to balance day to day HR matters with big picture thinking. She is very strategic and has the ability to develop and implement strategy and address business needs based in frameworks but also in a creative way. She is very well read, has a good grasp on current HR theory and provides advice with personal integrity and self-confidence."

-- Ute Diversi, Organisational Change Manager, Department of Social Services


"I worked with Simone for a period in CSIRO and found her to be a thoroughly professional, hardworking and helpful HR professional, who was always keen to get things done and applied intelligent ideas to any HR problem."

-- Lyn Wojtaszak, Advisor, Remuneration Tribunal Secretariat, Australian Public Service Commission



“ I would recommend Simone as someone who takes time to consider the needs of her clients, and who goes above and beyond to deliver a tailored service to meet those needs. At all times she has been easy to work with and highly professional. I now consider her to be part of my team.”

-- Necia Fisher, Innovation Leader, Canberra


"Simone is a motivational and highly knowledgeable coach and business partner who keeps up with the times and is a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Simone to anyone who is seeking professional advice, guidance and inspiration to help them with human resources issues and workplace concerns.”

-- Kaye Butler, Director HR, Fair Work Commission


"I had the pleasure of placing Simone in two separate roles during my time as a specialist HR recruiter at Hays.  Both of these roles proved challenging, with complex environments, difficult cultures, workforce issues and uncertainty amid political reform and change.  Simone was successful in both of these roles due to her resilience, strong strategic HR knowledge, desire to see improvement on individual and organisational levels, and almost sheer stubbornness to get the job done, in spite of the aforementioned challenges.  Simone is a highly respected and successful HR practitioner."

-- Andrew Marshall, HR Business Partner, Jacobs


"Simone has a wealth of experience as a HR professional which has resulted in great communication and engagement skills. I found that Simone really actively listened to me which is a very much underrated skill.

After completing the motivational maps questionnaire I met with Simone to talk about the results, even though I am pretty self aware I still took away some great insights into my own motivation and why I don't gel with some people.

I think that the motivational maps work that Simone is doing would be really insightful for team working including management and exec teams, as it provides insight into how you can create win:win solutions."

-- Sonia Lynch, Human Resources Manager, Bradley Allen Love Lawyers


"I worked with Simone when she was the HR Partner at Comcare. Simone supported me as the Deputy CEO by providing advice in all aspects of HR. Simone has personal attributes that make her easy to work with - high energy, good humour, positive approach and friendliness.

In her professional capacity, Simone is experienced, up to date with HR practice and information, but most importantly works to achieve practical and timely outcomes which are fair to all parties."

-- Cathy Skippington, Deputy CEO Comcare (Former)


"I would like to say a big thank you to Simone at Citron Consulting. I had decided to apply for a new job - one that I knew would be my perfect fit, but I just couldn't find the right words. Simone was able to identify my strengths and skills and empower me with the language I needed. I didn't realise how much stronger my application could be and how amazing I could sound until Simone stepped in. Not only did she help strengthen my application, but she built up my confidence. Simone was easy to talk to, quick to understand me and highly efficient."

-- Juliette Lumbers, Career Advisor, ANU


"The team at King O’Malley’s have been able to really focus on giving our customers amazing  service and  training new and existing team members after working with Simone, who has been able to provide independent and unbiased feedback during our sessions"
