Hiring is hard, why not get some help? When I created the recruiting division of BBI, I extensively utilized scientific personality testing to determine if my candidates were who I thought they were. When you go through the Hiring and Training Module, you will see that I suggest using these toward the end of the hiring cycle, to make sure our precise interview processes were on target.
While we were able to “make do” with some of the generic testing assessments, the problem was that no actual, custom coach assessment existed… until now.
As part of creating this program for you, I contracted with Self Management Group, one of the leading publishers and creators of highly rated personality and skills assessment test who I’ve worked with over the years. With over 100,000 assessments performed, I asked them if they would create an assessment specifically for Coaches. They did, and it’s available on this page exclusively through Coaching System Architect.
Below, is a list of my recommended assessments, based on who you are hiring.
A Full Description of the Assessments we offer
Coach Pro for Business Coaching:
The CoachPRO™ is the profile for the selection and development of individuals in business coaching positions. It assesses coaching style, results orientation, communications style and other key competencies as well as self-management, motivation, team orientation, comfort with conflict, confidence, lifestyle management, approach to networking, listening style and emotional intelligence.
The CoachPRO™ provides detailed feedback to both the individual for personal growth and the individual’s manager for development purposes. What I like best about this and all the assessments, is that level of precision in testing you won’t get on your own, without a tool like this.
POP7: The Personal Orientation Profile (POP™) has been used for recruiting and selecting sales people for nearly three decades. The POP™ has been validated in a wide variety of sales cultures throughout North America, Asia and in other parts of the world and is used to discover self-managers who will be consistent top performers. It has been proven effective in predicting both performance and retention. Use the POP™ for selecting sales positions roles where compensation is primarily based on commission.
Personally, I’ve used hundreds of these throughout the years to hire my sales staff.
