How coachable are you? Are You Coachable Now? Take our Quiz

Coaching Graphic All people are coachable, but they're not always coachable at every point in time. Sometimes, people want to experience change, but they're not currently open to adjusting their beliefs, behaviors, mindset, and taking action.

For the coaching relationship to be successful it takes much dedication, honesty, openness, and effort on your part, as the coachee. It also involves introspection, a willingness to try on new things (even for just 7 days), and to make your life and business a "no excuses" zone.

Part of the coaching relationship involves you interviewing the perspective coach to see if they're a good fit with what you're looking for and if they have the right personality style and knowledge. Coaching is a collaboration.

The coaching relationship, whether you apply private or group coaching, starts with a greater understanding of oneself and continues with business/career growth.

Take the quiz and you'll discover how coachable you are -- RIGHT NOW -- or not! If you're not ready at this time, try again in six months.

Your answers are 200% private! As you see, we don't ask you for your name, email, etc. Our system will add your score for you and give you your Coachability Index. Select the number that comes closest to representing how true the statement is for you with 1 being Not True at All and 5 being Very True.

1. I can be relied upon to be on time for scheduled calls and appointments.

2. I love learning. This is often a blessing and at other times it seems like a curse.

3. I am fully willing to do the work the coach and I determine is necessary.

4. I keep my word without struggling or sabotaging.

5. I'm receptive to new ideas and will "try on" new concepts or different ways of doing things.

6. I will be open and honest with my coach including telling the coach when I am not getting what I need or expect from them.

7. I will set aside the time to work on my business instead of in it. I understand that my time working on the business must be many more hours than it is now.

8. I am willing to eliminate or modify any self-defeating personal or business behaviors that limit my success.

9. I see the value in coaching as a worthwhile investment of my time and funds.

10. I am someone who takes responsibilities for my results (the good, the great, and the failures).
