How to use these coaching evaluation feedback questions

Asking Coaching Evaluation questions at the end of a coaching series or program help the client anchor the benefits of coaching with you. They also give you feedback on how effective your coaching has been and where improvements can be made.

For instance a question like:

"What new strengths can you see you have developed from the coaching experience?" can really get your client to realize  and acknowledge changes and achievements they may not even have recognized and acknowledged to themselves. 

This is just one of the 10 questions I have suggested below.

The main point is to ask open-ended questions. That is questions that require more than just a "yes" or "no" answer but get the client to elaborate.

Of course the ideal is that the client will give a spontaneous unsolicited testimonial in the form of a thank you card or letter.

But when this doesn't happen - and you know and the client has acknowledged you have helped them move to a much better place in their life - a little prompting may be all that is needed to get them eager to add their words of praise.

You can either ask the coaching feedback questions as part of the completion process at the final session or send them to the client to complete.

Personally I recommend the former as it is then done and dusted and you are not waiting anxiously for a reply from a client who has moved on and may not see it as a priority to get back to you.

10 great coaching evaluation questions to ask for feedback

You can adapt the questions to suit your particular writing style, coaching job or niche.

  1. As you went through the coaching journey, how did it change things for you?

  2. What did you  hope to get from coaching with me? Were your expectations met?

  3. What new strengths can you see you have developed from the experience?

  4. How could I have been a better coach for you? Were there some things I could have done better?

  5. How did you surprise yourself through the coaching series?

  6. What was the thing you benefited from and/or enjoyed the most?

  7. What do you see as the major insights or breakthroughs you made through coaching?

  8. What will you now do differently to how you operated before the coaching experience?

  9. Are you comfortable writing a testimonial for me (the coach) on the overall experience and how could you word this?

  10. If you are willing to endorse and recommend my coaching, but are stuck on how to write a testimonial, would you like me to help you with this?
