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, Opportunist, Diplomat, Expert, Achiever, Individualist/Pluralist, Strategist, Magician and 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
f you’d like to know your developmental stage, there are three steps to the process.
Step One: After you submit payment, you will receive the MAP via email to complete. You will need up to 45 minutes to respond to the 36 sentence stems. For the best results, this needs to be done in one sitting. Once you’ve completed the Maturity Assessment Profile (MAP), you return it via email for scoring.
Step Two: 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 90 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.
Step Three: You will initiate the call for the 90 minute debrief (Skype 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 $950.00.
