DUE SUNDAY MARCH 5 BY 5 PM EST Application: Leadership Self-Assessment Given that coaching for leadership development aligns with an objective, data-driven methodology, utilizing coaching assessments is particularly important. Typically, coaches use assessments at the beginning of a coaching assignment to learn more about the client and competencies in which the client needs further development. Coaches may also use assessments following a coaching assignment to determine if leaders and organizations benefited from coaching and how they might have done so. Later in this course, you will explore specific assessments used by coaches and consider how the results might guide the coaching process. However, for this week’s Application Assignment, you are asked to complete a generic leadership assessment, similar to that provided from commercial testing vendors. Then you will use the results to determine which leadership competencies you might need to further development and how coaching might be used to address these competencies. Keep in mind that the purpose of this assessment is not necessarily to determine your own leadership ability, but to become familiar with a typical coaching assessment, how it is used to identify competencies that need further development, and how coaching for leadership development might be used to develop those competencies. To prepare for this assignment: Review the article, “Executive Coaching—Who Needs It?” Pay particular attention to the leadership competencies that leaders might need to develop further. Review the online chapter, “Executive Coaching: A Working Definition.” Consider typical goals of coaching for leadership development and how interventions might address these goals. Complete the Leadership Self-Assessment. – ** Attached below and completed use for paper. (This is an interactive Excel document with three sheets to advance through.
