Listen to Anne and Jul talk about their new class (15 mins.).


Experienced coaches...Experienced executive coaches..Students who are entirely new to the field...Students with little experience or confidence in their ability to do executive coaching (Learning to do assessments can be a great confidence-building step.)...Coaches who intend to apply the assessments in other areas of coaching.



The Executive Coaching Assessments MasterClass will give you an in-depth look at how you can use assessments to create coaching interventions which will deliver measurable results.

Assessments are an essential tool for executive coaching and extremely useful in other coaching niches. When choosing executive coaches, organizations often ask the candidate, "What 360 instrument do you use?" "What assessments do you use?" You need to have an answer for these questions--even if you ultimately end up not using assessments with the client.

The assessments covered will include two 360 feedback tools and an assessment that identifies conflict among teams. One assessment focuses on identifying and leveraging thinking styles. The second assessment helps with team management. And the third assessment tool combines the VIA with Gallup research for a unique approach to strengths in the workplace.

The assessments are a valuable way to identify organizational culture. They share other cutting edge resources and tools that businesses currently use. The process also allows the coach and client to bond.

More to the point, they are an essential tool for anyone who would do executive coaching. Essential for practice. Essential for your marketing.

Students will receive copies of all instruments with detailed instructions on how and when to utilize them.

There is no pre-requisite for this class.
