Selecting Coaches

Increasingly organisations are looking to validate the capabilities of the coaches, assessors and facilitators they work with, and develop a greater understanding of when they should be utilised and who they would match with.

Acuity Coaching has developed a solutions based approach to coach selection:

Our three-stage process

We work with you to determine:

  • What your organisation requires from coaches in terms of Credibility, Capability and Chemistry. Our aim is to ensure that the panel of coaches will be credible partners for your coachees, that they are able to deliver the changes required and there is sufficient diversity to provide a good match for all your executives.
  • What evidence you require for each of the elements of the specification, and further information to enable an effective matching process. This will enable us to design a selection process that will deliver a coaching faculty that will quality assure the faculty and generate useful data for matching.
  • What role you want to play in the selection process.

We source coaches that meet the specification following an agreed process that includes:

  • Application form
  • Telephone interview
  • References

This can be delivered by Acuity, a combination of us and the client or all by the client. Typical components include:

  • Capability interviews
  • Assessment centres
  • Live coaching
  • Presentations
  • Interview with Supervisor
