Why measure the skill of Motivating Others?

Motivating others at work is essential because it helps people understand the forces that drive others to put forth effort into their jobs. It positively influences their performance, organisational commitment, turnover intentions, extra-role behaviours, as well as their mental health and well-being.

It helps managers and employees in gaining the commitment and support of others in order to successfully link their motivations to be active in their work with business objectives.
