During Australasian Coach Week (24 to 29 May), the Queensland Chapter of the International Coach Federation Australasia (ICFA) will learn how to use behavioural profiling to enhance their Coaching Services. Events are being held in Brisbane and also at Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast. CoachWeek is not just for Coaches. This year’s theme is Inspiring Resilience in individuals, workplaces and communities.
Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join in the CoachWeek events throughout Australia and New Zealand.
Extended DISC expert Sharon Hudson of Talent Tools will demonstrate the new Extended DISC Reports specifically for Coaches and their Clients. For the first time a Coach can now receive a report tailored to their professional needs and provide their client with a report and workbook based on the their profile.
"Coaches have been using behavioural and personality profiling for many years, and Extended DISC, which is one of the newer instruments available, being just 16 years old, is the tool of choice for Coaches worldwide,” Ms Hudson said “This is partly due to the accuracy and dependability of the results which are achieved through its high validation standards. However, Coaches and their clients enjoy how easy it is to administer and how easy it is to understand.
“Maybe it is the action focus of the reports, with its tips and suggestions to make positive change that makes it so popular,” says Sharon. The new two report format is sure to be a welcome addition to the Coaches’ toolkit.
Ms Hudson has a background in human resource management, organisational development and adult education. She holds academic qualifications at undergraduate and post-graduate levels in Adult Education, Management Psychology, Business Management and Human Resources. She has been a Master Trainer for Extended DISC for 6 years, working throughout Australasia.
Sharon is one of the organisers of CoachWeek in Queensland and adds: "In this time of continuous social change, CoachWeek provides an exciting opportunity for coaches, related professionals and members of the community to be involved in thought provoking activities."
