Description

Coaching is an important aspect of any organization and any leader/manager-employee relationship. Coaching helps employees attain professional goals, have better performance, reduce stress, continue learning, communicate effectively, and more. With all these important results of coaching, it's clear that being a good coach is crucial. Did you know that a lot of who you are as a coach relies on your personality style? That's why an assessment that evaluates your personality and coaching style is an invaluable tool to help you become an even better coach.


What's My Coaching Style, a part of HRDQ's best-selling Style Suite, is a coaching style assessment and workshop 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.


This coaching assessment is accurate, easy to use, and easy to apply. It's also newly updated and contains the same great content! What's My Coaching Style 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.

How it works

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 five points, assessment-takers distribute points between the two statements in each pair – indicating the degree to which they feel describes their behavior. Scoring the assessment reveals your "My Coaching Style Profile" and a dominant preference for one or more four personality styles:

  • Direct
  • Spirited
  • Considerate
  • Systematic

In addition to the paper assessment, the What's My Coaching Style observer 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 one hour for the interpretation of scores, topic discussion, debriefing, 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.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this assessment, participants will:

  • Identify a personal preference for one of four behavioral styles.
  • Develop an awareness of personal behavior patterns.
  • Create an action plan to apply in the workplace immediately.

Uses and applications

What's My Coaching Style is appropriate for anyone to use for both personal and management development. The assessment can be used as a standalone training assessment, or it can be incorporated into a more comprehensive coaching skills training program.

Note: What's My Coaching Style is not designed to promote one "correct" coaching style. Instead, the goal is to help participants:
  • Identify their coaching styles.
  • Learn how to capitalize on the strengths and overcome the trouble spots of their styles.
  • Learn how to interact effectively with other styles.
