Sources of motivation and recovery from work
The multiple choice simulation opens up a discussion on the underlying motivations and practices. Understanding these will help the team to work together and support each other.
Roles, responsibility, and trust
The simulation helps you discover the meaningfulness of work and the sources of recovery.
We humans experience different things as energising, motivating and inspiring. We can provide the same quality of work even though the underlying motivational factors are different. On the other hand, we also have different ways of disengaging from work and seeking adequate balance for working. Understanding both of these helps the team to work and support each other.
The simulation uses the multiple choice simulation type and is lighter and faster to run than the classic simulation. In the simulation, the response options deal with your own preferences and good practices.
In the simulation, your team will carry out projects in your own working environment. The exercise consists of 10 short cases.

The sources of motivation and recovery from work simulation brings together factors related to motivation, meaningfulness and recovery. All of these together contribute to well-being at work. In the simulation, we draw on the idea behind solution-focused methods that we improve factors that we focus on. What’s already good doesn’t need to be fixed. The simulation makes you notice not only the areas for improvement, but also the meanings of work and life that are important to you, the best aspects of work and sources of recovery.
- Create a common understanding of what each person finds energising and positive in the work environment, while identifying areas for improvement in work practices.
- Get to know colleagues’ ways of disconnecting from work and relaxing
- Learn from colleagues’ good practices
- Improve team performance through shared understanding
- Teams of 4-16 persons. Suits also ary teams and project teams.
- The simulation does not include a strengths-based assessment of colleagues, which makes it possible to play with people who know each other less well.
- It also offers a nicechange for teams that have already played several simulations.
