Learners will gain a solid understanding of available assessments such as 360, DISC, Strengths Finder, Meyers Briggs, and Emotional Intel among others to identify client strengths. Through use of appropriate assessment strategies learners will appropriately align assessment results to the coaching plan.

      • Identify existing factors affecting the coaching process: client support system, attitude and social factors;
      • Establish appropriate goals based on client preference and assessment results;
      • Evaluate assessment tools for purpose, appropriateness, and accessibility;
      • Assist client in correlating stated goals and current state; and
      • Select appropriate assessments based on client scenario review.

      The NACE Assessments for Coaching Intensive II expands on fundamental skills gained during the NACE Assessments for Coaching Intensive I. Using knowledge and understanding of reliability and validity of assessments, coaches will examine client support systems for specific student populations identifying strategies to leverage client’s progression toward goal attainment. Attendees will examine impact of unconscious bias as it relates to the coaching process and client goal attainment. Coaches will construct a coaching plan and demonstrate effective coaching skills using results of client assessment.
