When to Use the Coaching Effectiveness Profile:

  • As an introductory training activity on coaching to expose participants to the full breadth of important coaching behaviors.
  • With leaders and managers who may need development to become more motivational leaders.
  • With team leaders and supervisors who are experiencing performance problems.
  • With team leaders and supervisors who are working with inexperienced or unmotivated direct reports.
  • As the center piece of either a 1-day facilitated training on coaching or with the CEP Workshop in more comprehensive 2 to 3 day coaching training.
