The old adage is true: "You get what you pay for!" And with the global career crisis looming, choosing the cheapest and easiest career guidance tool isn't going to get you far. These tests cannot measure unique characteristics; they measure only traits common to many people. Most importantly, intelligent tests do not measure strength and persistence of motivation. At LEADWell we believe to define a full, unique perspective of an individual, there are multiple dimensionsto be understood such as work/ volunteer, school, innate talents, interest, core motivations and values (beyond typical personality-based instruments which measures one or two). That is the value MCORE brings to the table.
MCORE is a powerful assessment that draws out and explains the central themes of our motivational pattern through personal narrative, helping us to manage ourselves, predict how we will perform in the future, and target those situations, environments, and relationships that provide a “good fit” for us. The MCORE (Motivational Core) is a narrative tool for self discovery. MCORE is derived from SIMA® (System for Identifying Motivated Abilities), an assessment process that is profoundly powerful at identifying your unique pattern of motivated behavior. MCORE draws on SIMA® taxonomy and unveils the main part of the SIMA® Pattern, the Central Motivational Themes (CMTs), discovered through over 50 years of empirical research. The more you understand your own pattern of motivation, the more you can effectively manage yourself, predict how you will perform in the future, and target those situations, environments, and relationships that provide a “good fit” for you.
SIMA® and MCORE utilize a narrative psychology methodology to create a personalized process of discovery that begins by looking at real stories from your life as told in your own words. MCORE offers a more simple and scalable approach to healthy self-discovery and self-construction that allows organizations of all sizes to utilize its predictive power to maximize the potential of each staff member.
Your Central Motivation Themes
The MCORE reveals the three Central Motivational Themes of your pattern which are key for understanding who you are and why you function the way you do.
• The driving purpose—sometimes conscious but often sub-conscious—of your natural actions, preferences, and decisions.
• Why you get immersed in some activities but fail to engage in others.
• The results that you consistently strive to fulfill in your work and relationships .
Life can have deep meaning and significance for you when you are able to express these themes.
Attributes of your pattern
The unique motivational drive of you as a person is a deep pervasive inclination, not something like the power source of a machine that can be turned on and off. Based on tens of thousands of individuals studied through the SIMA® process that MCORE is based on, your pattern of motivation is comprised of four attributes that describe your pattern as follows:
Your pattern emerges early and remains constant throughout life. Values and lifestyle can and do change, but the fundamental character of your unique motivational pattern does not.
Your motivational pattern can help you understand why you perform as you do and where you find joy and frustration.
Regardless of environment or circumstance, your pattern will express itself somewhere in your life. Use of your pattern is the essence of meaningful life and work to you.
You will never satisfy your motivation in a final way, regardless of how often you have had a chance to express it or how many achievements you have accomplished.
