Using this feedback form
Getting feedback from your clients, and then taking the time to act on it, is one of the best ways to help you improve the way you coach.
This feedback form is a great way to do that. I’ve included the most common questions found on a Life Coach feedback form. However, there might well be particular niches that would be better served by using different questions, so as always, it’s provided in a Word .DOC format.
The trick with any feedback form is to keep it as simple as possible. Use yes/no answers where you can and only use open questions when you have a specific need.
Always offer the feedback form as an option. Never make it a requirement.
How you use the form is up to you. Many coaches use it after the final session to get an overview of how the client feels the full experience went. But, as a new coach, it might be best to ask for feedback after every few sessions, or even every session if the client is willing.
There are two things to remember about client feedback…
- Never see bad feedback as a personal attack on you. You did after all ask them to be honest.
- The client will be grateful when they see you’re making adjustments based on their feedback.
