Sample Pre Coaching Questionnaire
Below is a sample pre coaching questionnaire (or rather sample questions you might want to use) however, before you are tempted to hastily copy and paste the whole page consider these tips:
- Be clear on what purpose it will serve – is it to gain information for your benefit, or it is more about raising your own client’s awareness?
- Ensure each question has a clear purpose and don’t ask questions you have already asked and explored
- Review and explore the responses with your client
- Don’t take written answers at face value – be prepared to probe
- Tailor your questions to the needs of each client
