We are going to be addressing this in the future but here are a couple of key points:
– MCODE was designed to get at the heart or core of a person’s motivational drive – i.e. what is most deeply satisfying. So, in one sense, all of the top themes are about “outcome” when we define outcome as what is most deeply satisfying.
– The 27 themes themselves are written with “what is most deeply satisfying?” in mind. Many of them assume a result or outcome – i.e. achieve potential, bring completion, meet the challenge, make it right, etc.
Motivational flow is so useful as a concept because it provides clients with an action model that they can quickly utilize and it helps them see the connections among their themes.
BUT, we have to be careful not to lock in the flow themes into a too rigid structure. Any theme that is a trigger is also really a part of the outcome as well. For example, if I driven to meet challenges and I am triggered by challenges, this activation looks forward to that challenge actually being met!
