Motivation drives greatness, happiness, and deep satisfaction

The motivations that drive every individual are as unique as individuals themselves. What drives you at your core is different from anyone else you know.

That’s why understanding your motivations is essential to understanding yourself and how you interact with those around you in your personal and professional life.

That’s where the MCode assessment helps. It uncovers your core motivations and reveals how they shape who you are.

A simple 3-Step process

The MCode assessment walks you, your clients, or your team members through a fully-guided, three-step reflection and discovery process that only takes about 30 minutes to complete.

Step One

Share your stories

Everything MCode reveals about you is based on your stories. You’ll start by sharing stories of a few of the most important, meaningful, and satisfying achievements from any part of your life, and we’ll even help you choose the stories you share.

Step Two

Answer questions

Every question asked will be about your own stories and experiences. You’ll answer questions about how you felt, what you did, what you enjoyed, and why the stories matter, and you’ll do it by ranking your answers on a scale of 1-10.

Step Three

Discover your MCode

When the assessment is complete, we’ll apply 60 years of science and human design insights to produce a personalized report all about you. You’ll discover your unique MCode and how your motivations shape who you are and what you do.

Stories: Your most meaningful stories shape who you are

Your stories tell us a lot about what makes you YOU and how you contribute to the world around you — and it’s not just about what you’ve achieved so far but also which achievement stories carry the most meaning and stickiness for you.

MCode asks you to think back to your highest points and proudest accomplishments — times in your life when you loved what you were doing and were happy, fully engaged, deeply satisfied, giving it your all, and showing up as your best self.

The MCode assessment guides you through the process of deciding which stories to share, identifying important details from your experiences, and sharing your stories step by step.

Questions: How you feel about your stories makes a difference

Your stories can be from any part of your life because what matters even more than your achievements is how you felt in the moment and what those experiences mean to you today. 

All of the questions you’ll be asked while completing the MCode assessment are about your stories and why they mattered and still matter to you. Your WHY is one of the driving factors that reveal what you value, what’s important to you, what you’re great at and enjoy doing, and what motivates you to decide and do.

The MCode assessment asks questions about each story you share to uncover what role you played, what you did, what you achieved, and why it matters. You’ll answer using a scale of 1-10.

Science: Applying science to your stories produces relevant results

MCode isn’t new. This assessment is based on 60 years of scientific and empirical research using SIMA® (System for Identifying Motivated Abilities), data mining, and the insights gained from decades of personal coaching on motivation.

We’ve assessed more than one million achievement stories from people from all walks of life and career paths — people just like you — and have distilled our findings into 32 MCode motivations and 8 MCode motivational dimensions.

MCode is powered by the proprietary application of proven science to your stories and answers. This identifies your unique MCode and ensures your results are relevant to you.

Results: Your MCode helps you better understand yourself

The MCode assessment provides a detailed report identifying your unique MCode — your top five motivations and eight motivational dimensions ranked from your strongest to your weakest.

But it doesn’t stop there. Your personalized MCode report provides everything you need to better understand yourself and the underlying motivations that drive every decision you make and everything you do. It shows you what makes you who you are, why you’re unique, and the amazing value you bring to the table.

Your MCode report reveals your MCode and how your motivations drive your actions. Learn what energizes and drains you, where you excel and struggle, and what to seek out or watch out for.

Application: Use your MCode to improve your work and life

The best, most accurate, and relevant insights about your personality don’t mean anything if you can’t or don’t know how to apply them to better understand yourself and improve all aspects of your life, relationships, and work.

Your MCode report helps you identify your motivational flow and understand how it informs your behavior and decision-making, how you show up at your best at work, and finally, how you interact with other people who are motivated differently than you.

MCode helps you use what you learn about yourself to align your work and personal life with your motivations, identify opportunities for growth and development, and live a more fulfilling life.

Life at its best.

When you truly see yourself, understand who you are, and know how to bring your best self to the table in every situation, the dynamics of work and life change dramatically.

Knowing your MCode unlocks a better, brighter future. It gives you greater confidence and helps you fully embrace who you are, own your personality, claim your value, and step into the greatness you are meant for.

The MCode assessment result is you at your best, which leads to work at its best and life at its best.
