iTYPE is Your Coaching Tool

As a coach, your goal is to take clients out of their comfort zone and to show them oppor­tu­nities for change while also building new ways to strengthen and further develop their person­al­ities. Intuition and experience are of the utmost impor­tance for your work. Coaches should also have the knowledge of their client's behavior and what motivates their actions.

iTYPE is a superb coaching tool that can be used for person­ality devel­opment — either as groundwork or supple­mental training. iTYPE displays important findings about your clients’ strengths, capac­ities, and incli­na­tions to help you system­at­i­cally identify and broaden their poten­tials of development.

Given the complexity of the infor­mation collected, iTYPE should be used solely in connection with profes­sional consulting where compre­hensive certi­fi­cation is a prerequisite.


The Solution-Oriented Coaching Process Step-by-Step

Phase 1: Building a relationship and trust 

Due to its purely perceptual test procedure, iTYPE is able to access the very core of a person­ality. When using iTYPE at the beginning of a coaching process, you will have the possi­bility to scrutinize your coachee’s person­ality. At the same time, you as a coach will have a good, trust-building tool for starting the conversation.

Phase 2: Problem analysis and coaching goal

Together with your client, you will focus on the problem or issue at hand. In this phase, the different perception person­al­ities will emerge. This gives you as a coach the possi­bility to steer the conver­sation according to the previ­ously realized iTYPE profile.

Phase 3: Implementation of solutions

To implement a proposed solution, you should take into account your client’s specific person­ality. It's also important to support them with different methods and questioning techniques in the planning and realization of their actions, depending on their person­ality and perception structure.

Phase 4: Personality development and evaluation

Finally, it is necessary to evaluate the goals to see if the measure­ments you and your client up have been successful.

It's best to famil­iarize yourself with your client's person­ality structure so that you may use those crucial elements to assist them with their person­ality development.
