      Although the question hasn’t come up yet, I have a client I’m working with this afternoon (her Impact session) and I am sure she will ask about her son taking this 🙂  And I’m wondering what your research has indicated so far.

      Thanks!

      P.S. This client (someone I’ve worked with for a long time) has all 4 Achiever Family motivations.  I laughed when I saw this.  Yep, I think this assessment is valid 🙂

      Update:  I just got off the Impact session with my client – and the very last thing she asked me, “How old would my son need to be to take this?”  I shared my screen and showed her where I had asked this question this morning.  We could not stop laughing.  And I told her as soon as I found out the answer, I’d let her know.

      🙂

      Heyyy Meggin, it was in fact one of the many questions I asked Rod during my Zoom call with him on 09 Feb 2021 🙂 and he suggested 18 years as the minimum age. I am sure the MCODE team will respond to your question but here’s my experience:  I did MY FIRST MOCDE assessment for a spirited (soon-going-to-be) 18 year old and here’s what she said, ” I am happy to identify my strengths and now I am looking forward to play to my strengths” .

      ps. I enrolled into the program on 9th Feb 2021

      I have been reading your words of wisdom on this member forum Meggin 🙂 Thanks for that.

      Regards

      Thanks for that information @Richa.  And yes, if young people could know this sooner, what a difference it would make.  it would certainly have helped me to know this much earlier in my life.  I felt the same about Strengths when I learned those about 20 years ago.  🙂

      I’ve been mulling over how to engage my high schoolers in this (14-18). In discussion with several other practitioners, I’ve concluded that I will ask them in smaller groups to share an achievement story and have some conversation around that with them. Following that, if anyone would like to go through the MCODE process, then I would invite them to do so. Do you have other thoughts or suggestions?
