The Maturity Assessment Profile (MAP) is a powerful tool for developing a better understanding of one’s self and those around us. This developmental learning helps to generate more effective conversations, more successful team functions and to support leading with more clarity and resilience in these times of uncertainty and change.
The MAP measures leadership maturity based on the Leadership Maturity Framework (LMF), a scientific theory describing human development. This framework accounts for how adults make sense of their experiences (their mind-set) at nine distinct levels or stages of the growth of maturity. Each stage reflects increasing capacity to sense and interpret the complexity of our internal thought processes and our understanding of the external world around us. As our world is becoming more uncertain and turbulent, this leadership capacity for understanding and responding to complexity becomes increasingly critical for sustained success.
Through an analysis of the completion of 36 sentence stems, the MAP reveals a person’s preferred patterns of thinking and acting, e.g., how we interact with others, our emotional patterns, needs, and what we focus on. The MAP is one of the most rigorously developed,scientifically validated, reliable, and widely used developmental assessments. Building on the work of Jane Loevinger, a pioneer in ego development, Harvard-educated Dr. Susanne Cook-Greuter developed and perfected the MAP over 30 years. For several years, William Torbert and Cook-Greuter collaborated to enhance some elements of the MAP.
Dr. Sandra M. Martínez is a certified developmental coach and is certified to score and debrief the MAP in both English and Spanish. (The MAP is administered on-line.)
