Effective coaches equate to stronger leaders, more motivated employees, improved morale, and better communication in the workplace. So what does it take to become a great leader?

While there are many skills and attributes of an effective coach, the Get Fit for Coaching Assessment identifies and assesses areas of strength and improvement based on five critical skills found in research and literature: building rapport, observing and analyzing, questioning and listening, providing feedback, and facilitating learning.

How It Works

Based on a review of literature and the available research on coaching, HRDQ's research and development team has identified five distinct skills associated with successful coaching. These five skills constitute the five competencies measured in the Get Fit for Coaching Assessment. The coaching process model shows the open flow of communication back and forth between the coach and the person being coached. At the center of the model are the "Five Coaching Competencies":

  • Building Rapport
  • Observing and analyzing
  • Questioning and listening
  • Providing feedback
  • Facilitating learning

Uses and Applications

The Get Fit For Coaching 180 Feedback component enables individuals to see how they are perceived by their peers. Combining the results of the self-assessment and the feedback provides individuals with an in-depth understanding of their coaching tendencies.

Get Fit for Coaching Assessment is appropriate for managers, supervisors, and team leaders at all levels, and can be utilized as:

  • A stand-alone assessment or debrief
  • An icebreaker for new coaches or individuals new to management
  • Part of a comprehensive training program on leadership development

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this assessment, participants will have the knowledge to:

  • Identify areas of strength and areas for improvement
  • Provoke critical thinking on what it takes to be an effective coach
  • Learn how to apply their new knowledge on the job
