Invitation to participate in an exciting research project conducted by the University of Central Florida (UCF)


Developed at the University of Central Florida, the CoachINSIGHT Toolkit is innovative, academically robust, and also useful for practitioners.

The Coaching & Mentoring Network is a strong advocate of robust evaluation for all coaching and mentoring services. Evaluation processes come in many shapes and forms, so there is no one way of ensuring that you have evaluated your programme effectiveness. Online measures are also not to everyone’s personal or professional taste. However, if you are interested in the opportunity to get the New Year off to a great start by offering your clients the opportunity to provide you with feedback to support your practice, then read on!

So, for those of you interested in supporting research as well as getting the genuine benefit of client feedback, then please engage with this project. This is the last chance you have to participate so please ensure that you get started ASAP. The CoachINSIGHT Toolkit is a collection of measures designed to assess factors important to the effectiveness of a coaching engagement. Coaches sign up to receive a personalized link, and then share this link with their coachees. Coaches answer questions about their coaching style and personality, while coachees answer questions about the coaching relationship and the degree to which coaching objectives have been met. The CIT takes about 10-15 minutes for coaches and about 5-10 minutes for coachees. No personally identifiable information is collected from coachees.

If you (the coach) and at least 5 of your coachees complete the CIT, you will receive a personalized feedback report (see a sample here) that provides you aggregated data and insights into your effectiveness as a coach.
