Purpose: Identify interest and proficiency in a range of skill areas
Age: Adolescents and adults
The Motivated Skills Card Sort is a quick and easy way to identify the areas that are central to personal and career satisfaction and success.
Based on experience, feedback and instinct, clients use the cards to assess their proficiency and motivation in 51 transferable skills areas (e.g. maintaining records, tending animals, initiating change, dealing with feelings, selling).
The client is asked to sort each card twice, once according to degree of interest in exercising each skill (five levels), and once according to degree of proficiency in performing the skill (three levels). Each activity is qualified by a brief statement.
