Pre-Course Activity


ILM 7 Pre-Course Activity

We ask you to come prepared with issues which you are currently experiencing that you would be happy to discuss and be coached on. We also send out a short document containing questions and exercises which will help our coaches understand you better and work with you in order to receive the best training.

As part of the investment you're making by signing up to this course, we're inviting you to complete our Paradigm FiT In 5x5 psychometric.

Paradigm is one of the most accessible and up-to-date psychometrics available on the market. Developed, tested refined and validated over an extensive period by HR professionals this is an excellent business tool. You will see how the use of psychometrics can benefit a coaching session and raise discussion topics which may not have been highlighted without the use of a forensic tool. Paradigm is based on 100 years of psychological research.

The Paradigm assessment reports were developed, tested, refined and validated over an extensive period. This will provide, what we believe, to be the most practical and purpose built psychometric report available in the market today.
