Bev Lutz ICF membership provides incredible professional networking opportunities, professional and personal growth, and opportunities to explore my strengths as I volunteer in service of my profession.  My chapter really helps me stay current with coaching, thought leadership, and learn-n-earn (CEU’s) from professional development events.  But it’s the supportive coach-friends and collaborators who have made membership for me priceless. //

As a coach, determining if one should be incorporating assessments into their work with clients can be overwhelming. Not only that, but if you decide to use them, where do you even begin? If the assessment quandary sounds familiar to you, you won’t want to miss this webinar. You will hear from three coaches who have been trained in and utilize three different assessment tools—The Enneagram, StrengthsFinder, and Insights. We will spend 90-minutes introducing you to these three tools, how they can be used, pros and cons, cost, and ease of use.


Assessments we’ll review


The Enneagram (meaning Ennea=9, Gram=Diagram) is a tool for self-awareness and personal growth based on 9 basic types and can identify how clients see and show up in the world based on their inner motivations


The StrengthsFinder assessment measures your natural patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving, so when you're done with the assessment, you'll have discovered your talents and can build from there.


The INSIGHT Inventory personality assessment helps people identify and utilize their strengths and eliminate the triggers and stress reactions that derail success.


ICF Core Competencies Addressed:

Co-creating the Relationship -- Establishing Trust and Intimacy with the Client, Coaching Presence

Communicating Effectively -- Active Listening

Facilitating Learning and Results -- Creating Awareness, and Designing Actions



To provide insight, into three assessment tools to assist coaches in determining best fits for their practice.

She is the owner of Danielle Allen Coaching & Consulting and coaches individuals, teams, and groups. She holds an M.A. in Theological Studies, has been trained as LCPC (Life Coach Practitioner Certification), MCPC (Master Coach Practitioner Certification) through Learning Journeys, the International School of Coaching and in the Enneagram through Your Enneagram Coach and with Ginger Lapid-Bogda who runs The Enneagram in Business.
