Look at your lowest score. If you have any room at all to improve your coaching mindset start there since it has a multiplier effect on your ability to inspire winning results and relationships. Once you hone your coaching mindset, then identify your lowest scoring coaching habit to improve.

Leadership is an inside job. Since your scores were below average, read (or re-read) the Positive Coaching Mindset chapters in The Power of Positive Coaching that correspond to your lowest rated areas. Identify an area where you are motivated to improve, and it will make a real difference in your mindset. Take baby steps by improving just one area at a time. Next, focus on one area to improve for 30 days before you move onto the next area.
When you come back to take the assessment again, be encouraged knowing that a small improvement in your mindset will have a multiplier effect on your overall score.
Positive Mindset and Habits
Inspiring winning results and relationships is a two-dimensional challenge that involves a positive coaching mindset and positive coaching habits. Having either one is not sufficient to equip leaders to coach effectively and inspire their teams optimally. Most coaching books and workshops focus on skills and habits, which are essential. You can perform all the right skills, but without the right mindset those skills and habits will not yield the response and results you want from your team. On the other hand, the right mindset is crucial, but without corresponding coaching habits, you will never see that mindset translated into coaching behaviors. A positive coaching mindset and positive coaching habits go hand in hand, and they have more than a proportional relationship. Your coaching mindset has a multiplier effect on your coaching habits. This relationship between mindset and habits can be expressed in a simple equation:
Positive Coaching Mindset x Positive Coaching Habits = Winning Results and Relationships
Business coaching is an inside job. It starts with your knowledge and clarity of who you are, then it emanates outward to your coaching skills and habits. In the first part of this book we will discuss the four levels of knowledge that build a positive coaching mindset. Your mindset will either limit or expand the possibilities and results you will achieve by applying the coaching habits, that’s why we will address your mindset first. Next, we will outline the five positive coaching habits, the skillset, with supporting tools for each one. Equipped with a positive coaching mindset and positive coaching habits, you can inspire winning results and relationships.
