Coaching Readiness Scale

Below is a list of questions that can help guide you to whether or not you are ready for coaching.

  1. Does I intrinsically want to make improvements?
  2. Am I genuinely interested in partnering with someone to develop plans to reach specific goals?
  3. Am I open to experimenting with new and different approaches to academic and personal tasks?
  4. Am I interested in personal reflection and self-discovery?
  5. Am I willing to modify or eliminate behaviors that limit his/her success?
  6. Am I ready to take part in a collaborative process with a coach and give feedback when appropriate?
  7. Am I willing to attend weekly or biweekly meetings with a coach and arrive on time?
  8. Am I open to finding value in the process, not because someone else has prescribed that I use this resource.
