The revised and updated Coaching Skills Inventory (CSI) Administrator's Guide Collection includes the following components: Coaching Skills Inventory Administrator's Guide ISBN 9780999009406 Coaching Skills Inventory, Self 3e ISBN 9780787982539 Coaching Skills Inventory, Observer 3e ISBN 9780787982522 The guide can be used in a number of ways; as a stand alone tool, as part of the Coaching for Commitment Workshop, or as a part of another coaching or leadership course. The Administrator's Guide contains instructions for administering the CSI: Self and the CSI: Observer as well as interpreting results. The CSI: Self is intended for use by anyone who wants to identify (1) a coaching gap compared to an ideal, (2) the role(s) he or she gravitates toward, and (3) proficiency levels in using certain coaching skills during interactions with others. The CSI has a 360-degree feedback component, called the CSI: Observer that is used to gain a holistic view of the behaviors and actions a person exhibits. The CSI: Observer also makes a great follow-up assessment for progress checks. The CSI: Self is a 50-item questionnaire that users self-score.
The CSI takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete and the associated CSI: Observer version takes about 15 minutes. Once completed, the inventory will reveal which of four roles--instructor, mentor, manager and coach--the participant is most likely to adopt when interacting with others. It will also show how frequently the skills of challenging, listening, asking, encouraging, and refining--foundational skills for successful coaching-are deployed in a coaching conversation.
