As my own kids have grown closer to graduating from high school I’ve witnessed the same emotion from both the kids who are graduating and their parents – the almost overwhelming emotion of not knowing what to do for a career path. As students and parents struggle to answer that question the thought of college tuition looms, casting a shadow across the decision-making process. College is expensive and the idea of running into debt with no real confidence in what it is that you’re buying is going to produce what you really want for your kid – a happy and fulfilling life.
That’s why I’ve used an assessment known as MAPP with kids, businesses, individuals who are transitioning from one chapter in life to another. What I’ve liked about the Mapp process is that it gives an individual a really solid footing on which to then begin to build a college degree, then a career and ultimately a life that is meaningful and fulfilling to them.
To me, this is important stuff and I’m learning from the parents and the kids that I talk to that it’s important to them as well. It’s just that for so many, there is a sort of quite freaking out at the thought of the future that doesn’t need to be there.
If you’re freaking out just a little, or you know your kid or grandkid is stressing over the larger questions about life, path and purpose, share this link. This link offers you a way to take a sample test for free.
Taking the actual test is very affordable compared to other assessments I have seen.
If you are in business, this tool has been invaluable in helping team leaders gain greater understanding of their team member’s motivations helping to align the right person with the right job.
To those who want to take the test and have a consultation to provide additional guidance on the Mapp results you can reach us through the connect tab.
This stage of life, or any stage of life should never freak us out. We have enough challenges to face without struggling to know what it is that we were meant to be.
