The iMapMySports online questionnaire is a proprietary survey designed to capture opinions about yourself and others. On average, it takes just 15 minutes to complete.
We then use sophisticated algorithms to translate the answers into a picture of the athlete and their Passions, their Strengths, their Expectations and their stress related Reactions. This data provides the 'motivational DNA' of each athlete with critical insights to motivate, eliminate distractions, and maximize performance.
The iMap Elite Athlete Guide describes what motivates you to perform, your strengths for success, the support you need, and how to achieve into and stay “in the zone” during competition. These insights will give you the ability to control and adapt your behaviors in the pursuit of excellence. Additionally, we work with you to provide customized guides as needed.
The ideas behind the four quadrants of the iMap reports are based on the model of behavior that dates back to Hippocrates, "the father of medicine." Hippocrates developed the concept that people’s behaviors could be categorized into one of four types and that how an individual would react in a given set of circumstances could be Predicted. Many assessment tools are available but only iMap measures and describes four different dimensions, or facets of behavior.
