    This episode teaches the fundamentals of using assessments to coach. All too often we use the results to label and it cuts us off from conversations and deepening our understanding of one another. During this episode we will teach a coaching mapping methodology called QALMS (check out our article on Forbes on QALMS) (


    QALMS Overview:

    Questions - builds clarification
    Activities - facilitates positive change
    Learning projects  - creates ownership and accountability
    Motivators - ties coaching to what motivates someone
    Supplemental Coaching - supports direct coaching with non-time intensive coaching that requires no in person time on the part of the coach.
