A productive coaching partnership depends on assessing the effectiveness of the coaching relationship. This includes reflecting on the success of the coach, coachee, and partnership through information/data gathered during the coaching collaboration. Competent coaches identify criteria for success based on mutual goals while including the coachee in the evaluation process.

sharing data) to understand the effectiveness of the partnership.
