Greetings to all of you who are part of this group. I was familiar with Todd Henry’s work (Accidental Creative, etc.) and he was recently interviewed on the Beyond the ToDo List podcast and I first learned about the Motivation Code. My mind was blown. I thought, ‘I must know more about this! I have clients who would benefit from this, too!’ And I went to the site to buy the assessment (and coaching session, since that was offered) and saw there was a certification program. ‘WHAT!? REALLY?!’ I’m in.
I took the assessment, which wasn’t like any other one I had ever taken and then had my debrief, i.e., consultative coaching, session and learned much more. Since then, I’ve been very intent on learning and moving forward toward certification.
I was a professor for 15 years, with 5 of those as the founding director of the Excellence in Teaching Program at the University of Nevada, Reno. I had known for a while that there was something else I was supposed to be doing (and why I’d hired my first coach in 2000 – to help me figure out what I was supposed to be doing). I left the University at the end of 2003 and started working through my company, Emphasis on Excellence, Inc. (Reno, NV; https://meggin.com). For the last 17 years, I have spoken all over the country, primarily at universities and for school districts. My coach training started nearly 20 years ago soon after I hired my first coach because I wanted to know more. I had NO intention of becoming a coach, but… turns out, this is what my whole life has prepared me for.
My work has shifted from 95% workshops/consulting and 5% coaching to 85% coaching and 15% workshops (now via Zoom instead of F2F, which is part of what I had been guiding people toward long before the pandemic).
I am thankful every day. Every. Day.
And now, thankful to be part of this community and ready to learn with all of you.

Awesome, Meggin! I SO love the impact that this message about MCODE continues to spread because of Todd’s work! I was a teacher’s kid, and a teacher myself for a while before transitioning into ministry work, so I am so glad to know that you are sharing this message within the educational sector–everyone within education so desperately needs to hear this message as I think it gives great insight into how we can modify/adapt our current educational philosophies and focus upon development of the PERSON.
Look forward to more conversation here!
All the best,

Woo-hoo!!!! I have completed everything as of Sunday afternoon! It’s been an intense month (um, is that an understatement?!) and it’s been an intense month of learning and practicing and getting this in order to carry on with all of what we’re learning here. And I’ve already started inviting my regular coaching clients to take the assessment and to have their Impact sessions. I’m having to limit the number each month because of the prep time involved and also allowing ample time for their Impact sessions, but it’s working out fine. I have 5 of them scheduled for December and will have either 4 or 5 in January, and maybe 3 in February because I have some workshops that month, too.

Fantastic, Meggin! SO exciting. Please let us know how we can be of help over the coming months.

Hey, Meggin! Looked at your stuff…you seem like a cool cat! I’m glad you went first; I know I can learn from you. Expect to see me on your mailing list.

Thanks @Tom. Nice to meet you here! I’m sure I’ll see you soon in the upcoming classes 🙂

As of today, I have now done 10 Motivation Code Impact sessions and it’s as we learned in the videos, it starts getting clearer and “easier” at about 10 and even clearer and easier at 25. It will be a while ’til I get to 25 but I’m moving along pretty well 6 weeks in (well, 10 weeks counting when I started my certification). BUT, it still takes me a very long time to prepare, but that’s OK. These are my coaching clients and I want to really understand them and their MCode and keep deepening my own learning.

Meggin, that’s outstanding. So glad you’re finding it “easier” as you go. Agreed that you start to identify some paterns and tendencies as you do more sessions.

This is Gordon Tan from Singapore. Sorry for not responding earlier and I would love to hear from your experiences. I have been a working in the banking industry in the past 32 years till the end of 2016. After which, I took a Masters in Counselling because I was helping out at my church’s counselling service since 2007. In the course of working on my Masters, I first stumbled onto the Gallup CliftonStrengthFinder. It was power but later, I discovered Pruvio’s Motivation Code and it was the perfect complement for CliftonStrength. It helped me start off on my journey in coching. So I have only been doing this for a short while – since the beginning of 2020.
As part of my “retirement” activity, I volunteer with a group that helps out penultimate year university students as well as fresh graduates who just joined the working world. Our aim is to help these young people transit into the workplace. At the same time, we hope to influence them with ethical and ‘doing good’ mindsets. So I would be very interested on some of your thoughts about how to help students when they join the workforce.
