Psychometric tools provide us with an opportunity to increase our self-awareness - one of the key competencies of the most effective adaptive leaders. At its core, self-awareness is the ability to reflect on and accurately assess one’s thinking, feelings and behaviours and how they impact others. The relationship between self-awareness and individual effectiveness has been well established. Specifically how it improves positive relationship to work performance by regulating counterproductive emotions and behaviours. Furthermore.

DISC ADVANCED®

The DISC ADVANCED® process is designed to provide users with practical and, most importantly, useable, information about behavioural strengths and constraints. We are accredited to administer the worlds most advanced behavioural assessment system for individuals, pairs and teams.

Each of us has a particular behavioural style. Understanding our own style and the style of others is a significant advantage as it increases our self and social awareness, two of the four competencies of emotional intelligence. Consciously or subconsciously, we influence and impact others through our own behaviours in both personal as well as professional settings. At times we could be interacting and influencing others successfully and other times not. Self-awareness has a profound impact on the quality of decision making.

The DISC ADVANCED® profile describes one’s natural as well as adjusted style of behaviour. It also highlights, our motivations in the work place, our natural strengths and development areas, how we engage and resolve conflict in opinions etc. The profile comes with action plans to modify our styles appropriately as well as extensive instructions on how to achieve real results that enhance performance in relationships for individuals, pairs and teams.

LEADERSHIP MATURITY PROFILE

The Leadership Maturity PROFILE is a powerful psychometric tool in the assessment and development of leadership capacity as opposed to capability (skills, competencies). The LMP is the outcome of 30 years of rigorous research on the part of Dr Susanne Cook-Greuter who expanded and refined the Washington University Sentence Completion Form developed by the distinguished psychologist Jane Loevinger. Later Cook-Greuter and Bill Torbert collaborated in the refinement of the LMP to adapt it for Business and Leadership field. The Leadership Maturity Framework (LMF) provides an integral perspective of human development concerned with how we make sense of reality, which, in turn, influences how we think, feel, and behave. The framework reflects a deep and dynamic understanding of how and why individuals and organisations think and behave as they do and offers insightful, effective maps for individual and organizational development and change.

The LMP is currently the most rigorously validated and reliable assessment tool in developmental psychology. In addition, part of its effectiveness lies in its high levels of face validity; that is, it makes sense to clients helping them recognise their patterns of thinking and behavior and better understand their own strengths and what they can do to meet their personal and professional challenges. It analyzes and predicts based on the nine stages of meaning-making defined by the LMF through which individuals and groups pass as they develop and mature cognitively. Each successive stage reflects a higher level of complexity of thought and action as individuals and groups become more effective and insightful. Among the dimensions which are measured by the LMP are the level and quality of self-awareness, orientation to power, ability to see and understand complexity, capacity for collaboration, ability to give and receive feedback, and perspective relating to time.

We are accredited to debrief the results of the LMP psychometrics and use it a framework for the overall all leadership capacity development. To discuss completing a sentence completion and attain a LMP, please contact us.
