How Coachable Are You?

Leo Tolstoy has been quoted “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself” and Mother Theresa “If everybody cleaned their doorstep, the whole world would be clean”.

Are you ready to change?

Do you wonder how receptive you might be for coaching?

Well, one of the elements of coaching is change.


How Coachable Are You?

To see how open you are in relation to change, you can do this quick quiz. This quiz helps me (your coach) – and you – discover how ready you are for the coaching process, right now.

Directions –

Select the number which comes closest to representing how true the statement is for you right now. Then, score yourself, using the key at the bottom of the page.

Scoring –

Score each of your answers from 1 – 5, corresponding to the statement below.

  • not true – 1
  • less true – 2
  • not sure – 3

How true are these statements for you at the moment?

  1. I can be relied upon to be on time for all calls and appointments.
  2. I believe this is the right time for me to accept coaching.
  3. I am willing to take action and if I don’t take the action, I’ll get curious about why I didn’t.
  4. I will take 100% responsibility for myself (i.e. my actions).
  5. I am willing to be flexible and try different ways of doing things.
  6. I will be honest to myself and my coach.
  7. If I feel I am not getting what I need or expect from my coach, I will share this as soon as I sense it and ask that I get what I want and need from the relationship.
  8. I am willing to eliminate or modify the self-defeating behaviours that limit my success, health and well-being.
  9. I am someone who can work in partnership with a coach.
  10. I have adequate funds to pay for coaching and will not regret or suffer about the fee. I see coaching as a worthwhile investment in my life.
