The Reiss Motivation Profile® for Sports provides coaches with the knowledge needed to motivate their players according to each athlete’s unique needs.

Based on The Science of Motivation®, the RMP reveals how a player prioritizes each of 16 basic desires, thus leading to insights about the athlete’s resilience, self-discipline, team orientation, competitive spirit, fear of injury, learning style, and preference for leadership roles.

The results help individual athletes achieve peak performance, manage their tendencies under the stress of competition, and gain insights into the differences in values that underlie chronic conflicts with teammates.
