For many years, the LDMA (Lectical Leadership Decision-making Assessment) has been Lectica's flagship assessment. It is focused on a broad set of skills for leading in VUCA conditions (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity). The specific skills targeted in the LDMA fall into four broad categories—collaborative capacity, perspective coordination, contextual thinking, and decision-making process.
The LRJA (Lectical Reflective Judgment Assessment) is focused on a broad set of skills that we all need for managing CAOS™ (Competing ideas, Accelerating change, information Overload, and Social division). The specific skills targeted in the LRJA fall into four broad categories—working with perspectives, conflict resolution, evaluating evidence, and thinking and deciding. (CAOS skills overlap considerably with VUCA skills.)

The next LAP-1 begins the fourth week of January 2024, meeting biweekly at 5:00 p.m. on Mondays or 10:00 a.m. on Wednesdays. (All dates are New York time.) LAP-1 consists of 9 modules with two-hour live sessions spaced two weeks apart. All modules include weekly written and practice-based pre-work.
The opening session will be on Monday, January 22nd, 2024, or Wednesday, January 24th, 2024. Your first pre-work will be assigned two weeks prior to the first session.
Registration closes on Thursday, January 4th, 2024.
Course fee: $2,999 (with a $2,799 early-bird rate until Thursday, November 30th, 2023)
To be accredited, participants will need to personally complete an Essentials+ LDMA Assessment and a debrief by a Lectica Master Consultant. If you have not yet taken an Essentials+ LDMA Assessment, there will be an additional fee of $625 to cover this requirement. If you have completed an Essentials+ LDMA assessment but not a debrief, a fee of $325 will cover the debrief. If you have already completed both, you're all set.
Prior to the registration deadline, we will refund 85% of your payment on request.
After the registration deadline, no refunds are available, but you will be given two years to complete your course by transferring to a later offering. When you transfer, you will be required to pay a processing fee equal to 15% of the course fee being charged at that time (excluding "additional fees" above).
LAP-1 is a practice-based course. You will be learning content by applying it in a variety of contexts and combinations, both prior to meetings and during them. Participants work together, comparing pre-work experiences and using them to construct increasingly robust understandings of course material. This means that pre-work readings and practices are an essential component of learning. Please do not enroll for LAP-1 unless you will be able to complete at least 3 hours of pre-work per week (6 hours per module). Unprepared participants reduce the quality of the learning experience for everyone.
