Maturity Assessment Profile (MAP)
About the MAP
In the 1970’s Jane Loevinger introduced the
Washington University Sentence Completion Test as a method to identify
the stage of development of an individual. Since then, through the
ground breaking work of Susanne Cook-Greuter, Ph.D., and William
Torbert, Ph.D., the sentence completion test has been revised to assess
the stage of development of leaders. It is now known as the Maturity
Assessment Profile (MAP) or Leadership Development Profile (LDP).
The MAP describes nine different stages, (also
known as action logics) that a person uses to make sense of their world.
Those nine stages are Impulsive, Self-centric, Grouop-centric, Self-determining, Self-questioning, Self-actualizing, Construct-aware, Unitive. To
assess your stage of development, you complete 36 sentence stems which
are scored by a trained assessor. The results provide you with an
overview of stage theory, your current stage of development, and
suggestions for how to be most effective at your stage. A coach trained
in developmental theory will debrief your MAP results with you paying
close attention to the fit of your stage with what's being asked of you
in your organization and the roles you play in your life.
The Process - The Fees
If you’d like to know your developmental stage, there are three steps to the process.
After you submit payment, you will receive a link to complete the
Maturity Assessment Profile (MAP) online. You will need up to 45 minutes
to respond to the 36 sentence stems.
It will take 3-4 weeks for your MAP to be scored. As soon as it’s
received, you’ll be contacted via email to schedule a 60 minute debrief
at a mutually convenient time. You will receive an electronic 20+ page
report 2 days before the debrief. It will consist of an overview of the
theory, your personal results, and an explanation of each of the stages.
You will initiate the call for the 60 minute debrief (a virtual platform such as Zoom, GoToMeeting etc. is
acceptable). The call will include a review of your results, relevant
theory underlying your results, your growing edge, and creation of at
least one action step for you going forward. You are welcome to record
the call if you wish. If you are currently working with a coach, you are
welcome to invite your coach to join the call.
Fees: The fee for the services outlined above is $1,000.00.
