Psychometric tools help to raise awareness of behavioural preferences and communication styles based on how you perceive the world. However, these tools often are misused as "eternal truth" and in a judgmental way. It needs a coach to position them in the right way. Ideally the framework below the tool is used for self awareness more than the test result itself. 

As a coach in a business environment you will often meet situations where your client brings you a test result and wants to work with it.

How to coach in these situations and as well as an overview and grouping of the most common tools will central in this workshop. 
We will work with breakouts and exercises and you will have a clear practical sense of how to go about psychometric tools as a coach. 

Thinking of how to facilitate impactful and fun trainings leveraging your individual style and assets as a trainer? Then this course is just right for you!

We would like to offer you the opportunity to continue to further your coaching education. We offer this in the form of either Group Mentor Coaching (GMC) or Individual Mentor Coaching (IMC) sessions. 

  • GMCs have typically around 4-5 participants and thus are the cheaper version. It is a 2 hrs session where at least two live coaching will take place including debrief and feedback. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions on your current coaching work with business clients and get feedback and coaching for yourself as a coach (supervision)
  • IMCs are an individual work. Ideally you do send in a recorded session with a transcript and the key elements you want your trainer to focus on. The discussion will only take 30-45 min but the analysis work will be longer. Overall the investment is around 3 hrs. 
In your IMC you will have the opportunity to reconnect with our faculty and in your GMC in addition with your alumni colleagues. 
Overall, supervision in the form of a GMC or IMC is a must for coaches. We should always further our development if we are working as coaches. It is even a must if your are holding a personal ICF accreditation.
