Webinar: Using Assessments in Coaching: The Risks and the Benefits

February 27, 2017 - 1:00pm to 2:15pm

A well-chosen assessment can be an invaluable coaching tool, facilitating deep insight and exploration and inspiring eye-opening reflection. An assessment administered ineffectively, however, could send the wrong message – making a subject feel that they are being judged and evaluated rather than supported and encouraged.

Tricia Naddaff brings nearly three decades of assessment and coaching experience to offer practical guidance for effectively selecting and incorporating assessments to maximize the benefits to you and to your clients.

In this stimulating and interactive webinar, you will learn:

  • The benefits of using effective assessments in coaching, from developing a shared language to revealing blind spots inherent to observation alone
  • The potential pitfalls and risks associated with assessments – from misinterpretation to over-reliance – and how to avoid them
  • The root causes of unconscious biases, and how assessments can help reveal them
  • The ways supporting research can provide context and deeper insights
  • 10 quick tips you need to know in order to effectively coach using assessments
