What's My Coaching Style? is coaching assessment for management development that measures personality style and explores how it relates to coaching and interpersonal relationships. Coaches and managers identify and understand personality traits, learn how to capitalize on personal strengths, and minimize potential weaknesses.

Accurate, easy to use, and apply, the coaching assessment measures an individual's preference for one or more basic behavioral styles: Direct, Spirited, Considerate, and Systematic. With this knowledge, individuals can better understand why they behave the way they do, learn how to adapt their behavior to improve interpersonal relationships, develop rapport, and ultimately, become more effective coaches.

The What's My Coaching Style? assessment starts with an 18-item inventory that takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Each of the 18 items is a pair of statements. With a limit of 5 points, assessment-takers distribute points between the two statements in each pair - indicating the degree to which they feel the work describes their behavior. Scoring the assessment reveals a "My Coaching Style Profile" and a dominant preference for one or more four personal styles: Direct, Spirited, Considerate, and Systematic. 

In addition to the self-assessment, the What's My Coaching Style Feedback Form allows individuals to gauge how they are perceived by those they coach. It is particularly useful in the early stages of a coaching relationship. 

If you are planning to use What's My Coaching Style in a business coach training session, we recommend you allow approximately 1 hour for interpretation of scores, topic discussion, debrief, and action planning. 

The Facilitator Guide also offers an easy-to-follow workshop outline that expands What's My Coaching Style into a 1.5-hour program.
