Coaching with Impact – How to Best Utilize Your Personal Coaching Style
Development Workshop using the CoachDISC Profile (short pre-work required)

FREE CoachDISC Profiles for the first 100 Registrants compliments of WeCOACH!

This special workshop focuses on the importance and value of coaching styles, building self-awareness, and debriefing your personalized CoachDISC Profile Report results. The CoachDISC Profile is a key component of the WeCOACH Women Coaches Academies, and this workshop provides the unique opportunity to meaningfully focus on the ‘people side’ of your coaching. During the session with Liz Masen, CEO of Athlete Assessments (who has consistently been a highly-rated faculty member at the Academies for over 13 years), you will develop an understanding of how to take the most value from your CoachDISC Profile; understand your Coaching Style, strengths, development areas, and when to adapt; and put it into action to understand your student-athletes and how to coach them in a way that best suits them and the situation. Take advantage of this premier event to focus on the person who will have the most significant impact on your student-athletes and what your team achieves – You! Prior to the workshop, coaches will complete a 12-minute online survey to receive their personalized CoachDISC Profile Report. The detailed, 40-page Report highlights an individual’s coaching style, strengths, potential limiting behaviors, communication preferences, and the environment the coach performs best in. Usually priced at $99.95 each, there is no cost to the coaches attending if within the first 100 registrations. Places are limited, so don’t miss out.
