What’s My Coaching Style

Understanding personal style is the first step to developing successful coaching relationships. By responding to the 18-item What’s My Coaching Style? inventory and receiving feedback from coachees, participants identify their personal style and build an understanding of the people they coach.


What’s My Coaching Style is training assessment for management development that measures personality style and explores how it relates to coaching and interpersonal relationships. Coaches and managers identify and understand personality traits, learn how to capitalize on personal strengths, and minimize potential weaknesses.

Personality, or personal style, plays a role in all facets of organizational life from leadership to communication, and coaching is no exception. Understanding how personal style affects behavior is an important first step in developing the rapport that leads to successful coaching relationships.

What’s My Coaching Style is an effective training tool for identifying personal coaching style. Accurate, easy to use, and apply, the assessment measures an individual’s preference for one or more basic behavioral styles: Direct, Spirited, Considerate and Systematic. With this knowledge, individuals can better understand why they behave the way they do, learn how to adapt their behavior to improve interpersonal relationships, develop rapport, and ultimately, become more effective coaches.

Learning Outcomes:Identify personal preference for one of four behavioral stylesDevelop an awareness of personal behavior patternsLearn how one is viewed by those he or she coachesCreate an action plan to immediately apply in the workplaceTheory and Development

The power behind What’s My Coaching Style and the other HRDQ Style Series products lies in the simple but effective model for understanding human behavior. Based on the proven personality theories of Marston and Jung, the model identifies two basic dimensions of personal style: Assertiveness and Expressiveness. Assertiveness is the effort a person makes to influence or control the thoughts or actions of others. Expressiveness is the effort that a person makes to control his or her emotions and feelings when relating to others. Combining the two dimensions results in a four-quadrant model with four unique personal styles: Direct, Spirited, Considerate, and Systematic. The simplicity of the HRDQ Style Model is easy for trainers to facilitate and memorable for employees and managers to apply. Uses for the Assessment

What’s My Coaching Style is appropriate for anyone to use for both personal and management development. The assessment can be used as a standalone training assessment, or it can be incorporated into a more comprehensive training program.

How It Works

What’s My Coaching Style does not promote one “correct” coaching style. Instead, the goal is to help individuals identify their coaching style, learn how to capitalize on it, overcome trouble spots, and learn how to interact more effectively with others.

The assessment starts with an 18-item inventory that takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Individuals assign a total of 5 points between pairs of statements, dividing the points according to how much they believe each statement describes their behavior. Scoring the assessment reveals a “My Coaching Style Profile” and a dominant preference for one or more four personal styles: Direct, Spirited, Considerate, and Systematic.

In addition to the self assessment, the What’s My Coaching Style Feedback Form allows individuals to gauge how they are perceived by those they coach. It is particularly useful in the early stages of a coaching relationship.

If you are planning to use What’s My Coaching Style in a classroom training session, we recommend you allow approximately 1 hour for interpretation of scores, topic discussion, debrief, and action planning. The What’s My Coaching Style Facilitator Guide includes everything you need to lead a successful training session from comprehensive background information and activities, to reproducible handouts and even a professional PowerPoint presentation. The Facilitator Guide also offers an easy-to-follow workshop outline that expands What’s My Coaching Style into a 1.5-hour program. Go to HRDQ for this coaching tool:


Coaching Skills Inventory

Coaching Skills Inventory

No manager looks forward to approaching employees about job-performance problems — yet few tasks are more vitally important. The Coaching Skills Inventory offers a logical, 7-step formula for conducting coaching meetings that are based on mutual trust and respect.

Learning Outcomes Identify strengths and weaknesses in specific coaching meeting skills Impact employee job performance using the model for effective coaching meetings Measure progress by comparing skills after training to those before taking the assessment Theory

Coaching Skills Inventory is based on the Coaching Meeting Model. The steps and skills that make up the Model are all grounded in behavioral science and have been found to distinguish managers who are experts at conducting coaching meetings from their non-expert counterparts. (Orth et al., 1987; Fournies, 1978; and Stowell & Starcevich, 1987). Skills Inventory

How It Works

The inventory presents 18 typical coaching situations. Individuals choose the actions they would most likely take, generating an overall Coaching-Effectiveness Profile. Subscores measure effectiveness in each of the 7 steps of the Coaching Meeting Model process. Next, participants learn a proven meeting model to improve their performance. Finally, a post-training assessment (located in the Facilitator Guide) serves as a basis for comparison.

Uses for the Coaching Skills Inventory

The Coaching Skills Inventory instrument is appropriate for use with individual managers, a group of managers or supervisors in a department or work unit, or all the managers in an entire organization. It can also be used with prospective managers to help them prepare for their future coaching responsibilities.
