Using the Leadership Development Profile
The original ‘meaning-making’ psychometric process for leaders and organisations
What is unique about the Leadership Development Profile?
Many psychometrics try to define fixed personality characteristics or behaviours, and this can feel like being given a label, put in some kind of box – a diagnostic process.
The LDP is different – it is a unique developmental process.
How does the LDP support my development?
The LDP is a process: a report; a coaching debrief; and ongoing development activity.
First, this process identifies which of nine overarching forms of meaning-making are currently most active for you. With a skilled LDF coach, you will explore this and the possible reasons why they are active – usually both internal and external influences.
In development work of any kind, it is important to ‘start where you are’.
The LDP helps you to find where usually invisible ‘meaning-making structures’ are active, right now. Equipped with this detailed dataset and a robust framework, you and your LDF coach will discuss your experiences and discover how to extend your developmental potential.
It forms the basis of a potentially transformational process of Developmental Inquiry.
At the very least, the process will be informative. At best it can become transformative.
"The LDF is an excellent and very practical model in support of the vertical development of individuals, teams, and organisations. For over a decade I have experienced it as a highly effective framework for people to increasingly deal with higher level complexities."

"Every OD consultant, coach and facilitator would benefit hugely from this experience and understanding. Why wouldn’t you want to better understand your clients through a meaning making lens?"
Jean Crawford, Executive Coach
“For me using LDP has offered both my clients and myself space and context in which they can let in some new light to help illuminate their lived dilemmas, and also look outwards to more clearly view some potentially challenging opportunities & possibilities.”
