Doe de test zit er een coach in jou

Do the test: do you want to become a coach?

Would you like to work as a coach/counsellor or learn more about coaching and counselling? Do you want to discover whether the profession of coaching/counselling actually suits you? Do our test and find out.

The test consists of five necessary talents to become a good coach. Each of these five talents show five statements. For each statement you indicate whether you agree or disagree with the statement.

Your results

You have now ticked a maximum of 5 check boxes per talent – divided over the 5 statements per talent. If you have ticked at least 3 statements per talent, you certainly have a match with coaching/counselling! If you have ticked less than 3 check boxes for certain talents, a coaching career might suit you, but the talents on which you have ticked less than 3 check boxes are your points of attention.

Do you want to make coaching your profession or do you want to  apply coaching skills more in your current job? Then joining a coaching/counselling programme is a great idea.
