This graph compares your results to two leadership research samples collected by Torbert and Cook-Greuter (pre 2000), and Cook-Greuter (2000-2009) using the SCTi-MAP, and a leadership sample from the STAGES research (2014-2015). The STAGES Assessment research replicates, at a high level, the results from the SCTi-MAP.
Cook Greuter/Torbert's Sample 1 with 497 managers and supervisors was collected pre-2000.
The Cook-Greuter sample 2 with 1568 participants consists of leaders in their respective fields, managers, and consultants who have been profiled between 2000-2008. It is a highly selective sample consisting only of professionals. These individuals were either volunteering to take the SCTi-MAP (LDP) for self-development purposes or did so as part of and in the context of an organizational development effort.
You can map the percentage of the level of your responses with these samples and see how you compare.
Notice the range of responses you have given in your Assessment. Some individuals stay within 3 stages, other people's sentence completions span many stages. In general, it is beneficial if a person can respond to a range of levels.
The assigned stage of development in the STAGES assessment is the stage perspective you most automatically operate out of, or center of gravity. Each profile is unique and the comments relate to your specific stage, developmental range, and patterns.
