Psychometrics in Coaching offers expert advice on how coaches, consultants and human resource managers can use psychometrics to support and develop individuals.
With a growing demand for psychometric testing in the coaching profession, coaches and practitioners alike need to understand the psychology underpinning the tests as well as how to select and apply them effectively. Published with the Association for Coaching and written by an international team of global coaching practitioners and psychometricians, Psychometrics in Coaching provides an overview of using psychometrics and providing feedback and offers clear explanations of the key models and tools used in coaching today. Whether you are new to using psychometric tests or an experienced practitioner, this book provides you with a deep understanding of the models, the theory and research behind them, their reliability and validity, and how to implement them as part of a wider coaching and development programme. Psychometrics in Coaching is an essential resource for those seeking expert guidance from the leading writers in the field, as well as students on psychology, psychometrics, business and human resources programmes.
This book fills an important gap in the coaching literature. Psychometric data figures increasingly in the background materials coachees bring to the learning alliance and the book provides valuable guidance on how to make safe, effective use of a wide range of instruments.

Executive coaches are increasingly aware that our observations are invariably biased, distorted and selective. While that is part of the charm and power of coaching, this textbook is invaluable in balancing our sometimes overly subjective perception.
Erik de Haan, Director of Centre for Coaching, Ashridge Business School
A very timely book. Both coaching and psychometrics are fast growing areas. Psychometric test results help build the foundation on which effective coaching rests. Any coach should know this information.
Professor John Rust, The Psychometrics Centre, University of Cambridge
