Resources & Self-Assessments

The assessments and tools below assist in developing self-awareness, have practical application and increase knowledge of and within your team. They create an excellent resource to work through your coaching journey.

CoachStation: Leadership and Coaching Assessments

The CoachStation assessments provide an opportunity to understand yourself, current situation and reflect on what things you may wish to change or enhance. Complete an assessment now to gauge what those areas are for yourself. Our assessments are free to use for your own purposes, without alteration.

Used in conjunction with our CoachStation coaching, leadership and management development programs provides greatest benefit. It is through coaching, mentoring and directed discussionated learning that we understand our own beliefs, values and increase self-awareness to the point of developing appropriate actions and goals.

CoachStation Self-Awareness Questionnaire

Complete this assessment to better understand your motivations, potential direction and goals. Your responses will assist to clarify direction and identify areas such as motivation, values and what aspects you may like to improve. Most people do not take the time to understand these elements and become frustrated, demotivated and challenged as a result. Click on the link above to access and print a copy of the assessment worksheet.

CoachStation Team-Awareness Questionnaire

Complete this assessment to better understand your team, goals direction and key elements of team success. The answers will provide clarity and identify various gaps that currently exist. Understanding where your team is heading and why you may not feel aligned to these goals is one outcome. Click on the link above to access and print a copy of the assessment worksheet for your input and discussion.

CoachStation REOWM Leadership, Coaching and Accountability Model

The CoachStation REOWM Leadership and Coaching Model is very effective in preparation for and during coaching and mentoring conversations. Follow the five steps and genuinely work to develop your skills as a coach. Based on these skills and capabilities you will find most of the more ‘difficult’ conversations become easier to work through. Click on the link above to access and print a copy of the model for your use and discussion.

CoachStation: Employee Assessment 9-Blocker

This talent assessment tool is ideal to encourage deeper and more specific thoughts and feedback when reflecting on the performance, potential and behaviours of your team members. The tool is best utilised on a quarterly basis, with a focus on developing a series of actions based on where you have plotted your employee on the chart. This assessment is most useful during 1:1’s, appraisals and coaching sessions.

CoachStation Coaching and Mentoring Workbook

Prior to and during your coaching and mentoring journey, it is ideal to fully understand our commitment to you, and yours in return. Additionally, through the use of a workbook that is designed to accumulate all of your thoughts, possibilities and actions there is a greater likelihood of follow-through and sustainable change. This workbook provides all of this and more. Access the link above, read the content and print a copy for use during your coaching.

Learning Styles Assessment

This short assessment provides the opportunity to understand your preferred learning styles. The vast majority of people are a combination of all 3 preferences: Visual, Auditory and Kinaesthetic. The VAK learning styles model suggests that most people can be divided into one of three preferred styles of learning. However, we most of us have a preferred method of taking in information, particularly when it is new learning. When you know your preferred learning style(s) you understand the type of learning that best suits you. This enables you to choose the types of learning that work best for you. There is no right or wrong learning style. The point is that there are types of learning that are right for your own preferred learning style.
