Marc W. Schwartz Core Map® Profile Testimonials
Marc Schwartz utilizes a unique assessment, called CORE MAP®.
CORE MAP® provides an in-depth look at several aspects of your personality. Unlike any other measuring instrument, it combines those aspects to provide a truly multi-dimensional profile.
CORE MAP® evaluates your nature – and then reveals how nurturing and socialization may have altered your natural personality, for better or worse. It also measures reactionary styles and personal effectiveness to give you additional tools for greater successes in business, in relationships of all kinds, and in your personal life.
CORE MAP® goes beyond self-awareness by adding dimensions that lead to self-understanding and personal empowerment. Individuals can then take greater control of their lives and create more positive outcomes in day-to-day interactions.
By measuring your personal traits from several angles, CORE MAP®, enables you to become aware of conduct that may not be serving you well. This provides the opportunity to alter or eliminate negative behaviors. You may also become aware of positive attributes and personal resources of which you were previously unaware.
CORE MAP® provides the fastest, most effective means of getting you on the career track that is best for you. When people are pursuing fulfilling careers – every aspect of life becomes more complete, more rewarding, and more exciting.

I can feel my true inner self pour out of me without having to use any energy
Core Map has helped me find my way back to my default mode, that state of mind in which I can feel my true inner self pour out of me without having to use any energy. I now wake up in the morning looking forward to meeting a new day instead of spending time wondering who I might be and how I am going to present myself in front of others. It is as if I can use all that brain power that went wasted to now be focused on the really important issues in my life, like family, friends, and my interests. I’m back!
Your facilitation of my Core Map has been such a gift
Your facilitation of my Core Map has been such a gift. It has allowed me to explore uncharted areas of my personality gently and fully supported. I love my new skin! Thank you
The Core Map portrayed my character in a way that made more sense to me
While I have taken several well-known personality assessments, the Core Map portrayed my character in a way that made more sense to me and your in-depth review increased my understanding of the findings. Working with you, Jill, feels like a partnership that is advancing my business goals as well as my personal effectiveness. I appreciate your frankness and candor, and that you always ask for permission (a rare quality). The other aspect of your work I appreciate is your attention to consistency, staying on track, and setting goals that always build on prior sessions. I value your perspectives that come from your own successful careers…perspectives about people, business integrity, marketing and authenticity of purpose and values.
Marc took a personal, direct interest in my gaining benefits from this process
From the CoreMap profile, I was able to understand some very unproductive behaviors in ways that were entirely new to me. The “aha” moment came when I realized how I had begun to rely on old, ineffective behaviors as my primary way of approaching situations. Though I had felt this to be the case, I had never before been able to verbalize and understand it so clearly. I left our review session with both excitement and a renewed belief that other, more productive aspects of my personality were either accessible within me or in a latent state and capable of being developed.
I cannot stress enough the role of the profiler (Marc) as well as the profile itself. Without the right profiler, the information is only information and nothing more. Marc took a personal, direct interest in my gaining benefits from this process. He worked with me to ensure that I understood the framework and that I knew what the next developmental steps could be if I so desired. His style is at once articulate, compassionate and authentic.
I gained real insight to questions I had asked for several years
After my COREMAP feedback session I gained real insight to questions I had asked for several years. No other profile had given me the multi- dimensional views necessary to identify why I acted and reacted in specific circumstances.
With this knowledge I’ve been able to make some subtle changes in my behavior. From a personal standpoint, this new “self” knowledge is leading to greater satisfaction in relationships. To say the COREMAP is incredible…well, from my experience, it’s not an overstatement.
What it really feels like is … I got my groove back
When I was first introduced to the CoreMap concepts, I was mildly skeptical about its value to me personally. I’d not only studied psychometrics in my psychological training, but I’d earned income for a time designing various kinds of educational and psychological assessments. I’d led dozens of seminars using various MBTI-related materials and conducted therapy groups with all the standard psychometric and self-report tests used as prompts or initiating self-discovery. My dissertation included the development of a career decision-making assessment, and I’d used many of the available vocational guidance tools in my career and corporate coaching. I didn’t expect to find anything much new or different in the assessment arena.
But, I found gold! The Entertainer in me had been kept waiting in the wings for too much time, for inadequate reasons. And not even three days after the interpretation session with Marc, I’d stepped up to the front of the training room and hit a home run with a program I’d only watched before.
I feel like I’ve come home. I’m recognizing parts of what I’m like, of who I am, of who I like to engage with the world, as if they were long lost friends! In psychological terms, I’d call it a significant reintegration of ego-synchronicity, but what it really feels like is … I got my groove back.
This was a very insightful learning experience
I wanted to express my satisfaction the experience I had with my Core Map review session. Marc did a great job explaining the fundamental components of the profile and how they cumulatively provided insight into my personality. This was a very insightful learning experience. Since our session I have been more aware of my own strengths and weakness and how these issues impact my interactions on a daily basis. I would, and have, encouraged others to take the Core Map with the hope that they will also have a great learning experience.
The insights I gained through your facilitation, have opened up whole new possibilities for my life
I have taken the DISC and MBTI assessments and have studied the MBTI in substantial detail, and thought I had a pretty firm grasp on my core temperament and preferences.
However, when you facilitated the CoreMap instrument with me, I saw a part of me that had been repressed throughout my childhood, schooling and work career. You worked with me to see how my “Entertainer” aspect could become central to my functioning. And, as I engaged with this notion, I was suddenly overwhelmed with sadness that I had been missing this in myself for so long, and relief and joy that I could claim it for myself. I felt for the first time that I had permission to be my true self. The Core Map, and the insights I gained through your facilitation, have opened up whole new possibilities for my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
I strongly recommend this process for anyone wishing to have a better understanding of themselves
When Marc convinced me to complete a COREMAP assessment, I assumed it would be a very similar management profiling technique to many I have undergone over the course of my career. I was wrong! The assessment provided me with unique insights into what I desired from my career and highlighted conflicts between my needs and the path I had been pursuing for many years. I strongly recommend this process for anyone wishing to have a better understanding of themselves, but particularly to those making significant career decisions. It helped me jettison the baggage and zero in on the career choices that will be personally fulfilling and have the highest likelihood of success. And I mean every word of it.
I’d recommend it highly
Unlike other personality tests I’ve taken in the past, CORE MAP gave me a more complete picture of how I saw myself v. how I really am. Seeing where those areas aligned was very powerful, and has helped confirm some gut feelings I had about where I want to head, and where I want to make some changes. My assessment is that it was a much more complete valuation of all parts of the person tested. I’d recommend it highly.
I found this profile to be amazingly accurate and on-point for me
I have worked with countless instruments that provide information about an individual based on their responses to a series of questions. I even completed my doctorate on one. I found this profile to be amazingly accurate and on-point for me. I heartily recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about themselves or wants to address long-standing issues that may be getting in the way of their personal effectiveness.
The CORE MAP and the follow-up coaching was “just what the Dr. ordered”
The CORE MAP and the follow-up coaching was “just what the Dr. ordered”. It was extraordinarily insightful and effective in validating my potential and discovering insights into my passion and motivation. Seeing the depth of this assessment, I realize that other assessments don’t go far enough. CORE MAP not only revealed my strengths and abilities, it also raised my awareness of personal and professional liabilities and provided specific feedback that helped me get to the next level in my career.
