This paper aims to understand how coachability is defined by coaches, what methods are used to make the determination, and if differences exist based on coaches’ backgrounds. We use surveys from 80 coaches and found that coaches’ definition taps into five areas: openness, growth orientation, security, external resources, and vulnerability. We further found that this definition does not differ by coaches’ backgrounds and remarkably few coaches rely on formal assessments to make this determination. Given the rise of coaching, a better understanding of what coachability is and how it is assessed can serve organizations well in deploying this resource.
