      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.

      Following this program, you will be able to:

      • Identify existing factors affecting the coaching process: client support system, attitude and social factors as they relate to specific student populations; 
      • Evaluate and identify assessments based on client preference and appropriateness to the coaching plan; and 
      • Create a coaching environment that is conducive to exploration and discovery.
