Psychometric questionnaires can provide a useful entry into a coaching conversation. These conversations are enhanced when coaches have a full understanding of the different psychometric tools available. Coaches need to understand the psychological theory and research underpinning the tests as well as how to select and apply tests effectively. This books aims to provide just that.
Written by an international team of global coaching practitioners, this book provides an overview of using psychometrics and providing feedback, and offers clear explanations of the key models and tools used in coaching today. The tools covered include MBTI, OPQ, Wave, ELQ, MTQ 48, VIA, CTT and many more.
Targeting both experienced practitioners and those new to psychometric testing, this book provides a deeper understanding of testing models, the theory and research behind them, their reliability and validity, and their use as part of a wider coaching and development program.
