Increasingly, coaching programs recognize the importance of cultivating coaches’ awareness of their own sense making.
The Maturity Assessment Profile (MAP) instrument has long been integral to the highly regarded Georgetown Coaching Program. Graduates of that program often speak of it as one of the most transformational elements of the entire training process. The MAP is also part of several advanced coach training programs.
As one of several assessments that measure Adult Stage or where someone is on the Vertical Development path, the MAP is a sentence stem completion instrument, based on the long-established, well-validated Washington University Sentence Stem Completion test (WUSSCT), Susanne Cook-Greuter adapted the MAP for use with the Leadership Maturity Framework and leverages a global team of certified scorers and coaches to deliver the assessment.
The Subject Object Interview is a method developed by Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey at Harvard. It is also the basis of the Growth Edge Interview developed by Jennifer Garvey-Berger and her Cultivating Leadership colleagues. It requires a face-to-face interview of about 90 minutes that is transcribed, scored, and synthesized into a report. The interview process itself can be a transformative experience.
