Leadership Maturity Framework and MAP Instrument
About the Maturity Assessment Profile (MAP)
Dr. Susanne Cook-Greuter developed and refined the Leadership MAP during thirty years of rigorous theoretical and empirical research, drawing from Dr. Jane Loevinger’s work in ego development and using the Washington University Sentence Completion Test as a foundation. The MAP has been validated at Harvard University and is currently the most valid, reliable, and cost effective tool for measuring adult development. The analysis and interpretation of the sentence completions is rigorously conducted by certified professionals to ensure accuracy. The MAP measures nine different adult world views.
What makes MAP unique?
Most leadership development approaches currently in practice foster adult learning through a lateral, skill-based model. The MAP assesses horizontal growth (consolidating strength and capacity in the same stage), as well as vertical transformation (evolving to the next stage). The MAP enables individuals to gain insight into their own process of making sense of their experience or interpreting their world – i.e. their current center of gravity. The MAP also reveals their growing edge, and where they might be falling-back or limiting themselves. Professionally trained CSAs (Certified Scoring Associates) score the responses, identify areas of greatest growth potential, and make recommendations tailored to each individual.The MAP measure is the best tool for identifying self-actualizers, the very individuals most likely capable of the systemic, transformative leadership necessary to thrive in today’s demanding and ever-changing global context. The MAP is being increasingly used in organizational settings to support development of individuals, leadership teams, and whole systems.
