- Demystifying Coaching Assessments
June 27, 2017
7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
What came out of Chuck Presbury’s presentation on assessments in March, 2017 was our community’s interest in learning more about the use of assessments and the desire for coaches to share their own individual knowledge and experience with different types of assessments. This is an opportunity to connect and interact with other colleagues to share questions and best practices on the use (or not) of assessments in your coaching practice.
Going beyond the often asked question of “What’s the best assessment for me to use with my clients?”, we invite you to bring your curiosity and questions to this forum to explore potential topics such as:
- Who uses assessments and why? Who is qualified to administer assessments?
- The opportunities and challenges of using assessments
- When and how to administer assessments
- Assessment choice: Sponsor or client directed vs. coach directed – how to navigate
- Use of assessment as aligned with ICF Core Competencies: ethical considerations
There is the potential for this conversation to continue in an on-going Assessment Community of Practice to meet virtually or in-person. It is our intention to provide a forum for the ICF CT community to share knowledge and use of assessments. We hope that you can join us for this interactive discussion and that you might consider participating in an ongoing Assessment CoP. You too can have a chance to be a future facilitator to answer the question “Where and why do you use assessment in your coaching practice?”
