The 5 Elements Model

We all have different communication styles and these have a significant influence on our day-to-day life, whether at work, on holiday, or at home – whether we are communicating with friends, family, loved ones, or managers and work colleagues. By using The Five Elements Model, business leaders are able to effectively drive their teams communication in a positive direction.

The Five Elements Model will enable you to:

  1. Understand your own style of communication, its benefits and potential pitfalls
  2. Improve your ability to communicate effectively with others
  3. Deal with opposing communication styles of others
  4. Be aware of your communication style’s adaptability quadrant and what it means
  5. Use as a problem-solving device for virtually any issue, personal, team or organisational

The Five Styles Are...

Visioning (where do we want to be?),
Planning (how will we get there?),
Facilitating (what resources are necessary?),
Doing (what actions need to happen?), and
Checking (what have we achieved? where are we now?).

Each style has strengths and weaknesses to consider and interacts with other communication styles in different ways.

The Five Elements diagnostic is quick and easy, taking no more than 8 minutes to complete online.

You’ll get a detailed 15-20 page report (the size of the report varies depending on your results!) explaining your communication style/s, adaptability quadrant, where any communicative weaknesses lie, and a whole host of other useful (and actionable) insight.

What Our Clients Are Saying...

  • I would like to pass on that the feedback from my team on this process has been very positive, in particular the one on one discussions you conducted. One valued staff member has decided to leave the team following this exercise, which is a good outcome for this person and great that the motivational mapping was able to help her understand what she needs to do next career-wise.
    - Director (Australian Government)
  • After many years in and around education, I’ve become a bit cynical about personality “tools”, and I approached Motivational Maps without any great enthusiasm. So I was very surprised to find that it was actually really useful! It provided some interesting insights into my own motivators, especially where some things weren’t quite what I had expected, and forced me to ask what this meant. It was particularly valuable in helping me to see what motivated the staff I am responsible for. Managing people doesn’t come naturally to a Computing person, so these insights are very helpful. The end results of this program far exceeded the relatively small amount of time it took.
    - Rob Shera (STCC)
  • Marie Ball is undeniably one of the best consultants I know. She presented well-articulated research, and spent time in understanding and advocating what I needed to achieve and where I had to focus to develop self-awareness and fulfilment at my current role. Her presence and positive outlook towards workplace management (and life in general) would be truly infectious for her future clients.
    - Dave Naishadh (Telecommunications, Sydney)
  • Hi Marie, thank you for your excellent advice and support over the past year. Your work on motivational mapping has been great for us as a team and we continue to make use of your insights as the basis of our ongoing team planning. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you again in the future.
    - Alan Duffy (Director Australian Government)
  • I completed a motivational map last year and it was immensely useful. Finding out what motivates me to do my best was much more insightful than the many other workplace testing I have done.
    - Mel Harwood (Assistant Director, Communications and Marketing National Archives of Australia)
