DINC – Do I Need Coaching?
Self assessment to understand whether you need Coaching at this point of time in your life.
A Brief Intro
This 10-question assessment based on psychological principles of being coachable will let you know whether you are really ready for Coaching at this time. This is not your usual generic coaching quiz. Instead, it contains 10 questions that allow you to look deeper into your personality, mindset and your current situation to find out are you really ready for Personal Coaching at this point in time.
Working with a personal coach does not only require an investment of your valuable time and energy but also commitment and willingness to change. This assessment will help you decide how much coachable you are at this point in time. This assessment will help you know yourself better and also to decide whether it’s right for you to go for coaching.
NOTE: Please remember that this is not about your decision to go for coaching or not but an indication of whether you need coaching at this point or not.
As we discussed above, this questionnaire will not provide you with a definite answer but help you dive deeper inside of you and discover whether coaching you need or require at this point of time in your life.
NOTE: Though these questionnaires are for self-assessment the best results you will get when you discuss the result with your coach.
Take Your Passion Assessment
Read it carefully before taking the assessment
Please complete all items in the assessment. Rate each item on a scale of 1-5. Please choose a number that best represents your feeling, thoughts, and behaviour about the statement. You can scale the statement as per the following scale
1 2 3 4 5
Less True Absolutely True
For example, if the statement you read is absolutely true in your present condition you can assign the number Five (5) to that statement and if it is Very Less True to your present condition you can assign it a number One (1). If it is Somewhat between these two extremes you can assign any number from 2 to 4 to express your response.
Detailed Passion Assessment
Have look at the below questions and take time to respond.
Remember, no matter what emotions arise (fear, judgment, regret, etc), be as honest with yourself as you can be.
Also, remember to have fun answering the questions and do not hold back. Let your imagination free flow.
Once you have answered all the questions, leave them for a while. Sleepover them and come back to them with fresh, objective eyes and observe any correlations in your answers. If you find any variations, do notice them?
Always keep in mind these questions have been designed to trigger some key passion indicators within yourself.
