What are decision driversTM

when it comes to professional communication training?

Decision Drivers™ are the four emotional needs that drive the decisions you make, the actions you take, and the way you communicate. When you use specific words (needs language) to connect with a person’s Decision Driver™, you become an influential communicator. To learn how to do this, Gerber provides corporate or sales training, motivational event speaking, content marketing and coaching.

You are motivated by security, good health, sensibility and simplicity


You are motivated by recognition, performance, pride and opinion


You are motivated by worth, growth, quality and significance


You are motivated by curiosity, creativity, desire and change


Effective communicators start by knowing themselves, first
