Announcing a Refresher Course for RMP Masters


We are happy to announce that Andrew Dix, a licensed trainer for the Reiss Motivation Profile®, has developed a refresher course for the RMP for Business. For a price of 249 USD, this online, self-paced course is available to individuals who have already completed RMP certification training.
Through a mix of readings and videos, the course will review:

  • the theoretical principles and key concepts in The Science of Motivation®
  • the new norms that were introduced in 2022, particularly the differences in intrinsic motives between Generation Z and older generations
  • various applications of the RMP for Business such as leadership development, team building, diversity training, and employee engagement.

Participants will have the opportunity to experience a live debriefing session and also will receive practice in administering and interpreting the RMP for Business.
Masters who complete the refresher training by October 31, 2022 will receive two complimentary administrations of the RMP for Business for use with their clients. 

Introducing a New Licensed Trainer for the RMP for Sports


We are excited to welcome Dave Laughlin, Ph.D. as a new licensed trainer for the Reiss Motivation Profile®. Dr. Laughlin will specialize in offering training in the RMP for Sports for coaches, athletic trainers, mental performance consultants, and team executives.  

After completing an online, self-paced, foundational course on the RMP, participants will receive virtual instruction on the test’s application to individual athletes as well as teams. Participants also will have the opportunity to practice administering and interpreting the RMP for Sports.

The course will cover such topics as the use of the RMP in:

  • evaluating athletes for the purposes of recruitment and performance enhancement
  • adapting instruction based on an athlete’s unique intrinsic motives and core values
  • understanding team dynamics so as to improve communication and reduce conflict.
Selected learning objectives for participants include how to identify players who:
  • desire a leadership role
  • are likely to show inconsistent effort
  • tend to underperform against weaker opponents
  • have the self-discipline necessary to work out on their own
  • may commit penalties under the stress of competition.

As the Director of Assessment and Skill Acquisition for Courtex Performance, Dr. Laughlin has used the RMP for Sports with individual athletes, college teams, and professional organizations — most notably as part of pre-draft evaluations for a number of National Basketball Association teams. More than 500 athletes have been tested to date. Dr. Laughlin’s previous positions include Assistant Professor of Sports Studies at Huntingdon College and Associate Professor of Exercise Science at Grand Valley State University. In addition to being an RMP Master, he holds a doctorate degree in Kinesiology with a concentration in Sport Psychology and Motor Behavior from the University of Tennessee.
