Overview of Assessments and Benefits of Using a Coach
The first stage in identifying a career path or in developing potential as a leader is taking stock of your abilities, interests, values, and preferences. A variety of assessment tools provide a “window” into you and they can be a baseline for sound goal setting and planning. Today a multitude of assessments are easily accessible on the Internet; unfortunately, more is not always better. Internet-based tools are often untested for validity and reliability, making their output questionable. Without a coach, you are on your own when it comes to interpreting results.
