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.
