Some coaches I have met like to use a tool to help someone they coach look at his or her own life and how they are running their lives from a big picture perspective as opposed to just focusing on one specific aspect of someone’s life like their career success. A coach typically uses a tool like this one to help someone work on their values and how those priorities show up in their life choices or as a check-up maybe once a year to see how things are going in terms of having a balanced life. People dealing with signs of burn-out may also benefit from using this kind of tool with their coach to see where their lives may not be balanced or may not be a good reflection of their values or the aspects that they say are their highest priorities.

The Evaluate Life tool can help facilitate the evaluation of one’s “life set-up” and discussions around having a balanced life – the importance thereof and how to achieve it through specific goal-setting in each area (named pizza-slices in the attachment). Sometimes people tell me that a specific area is not important to them and this may be best explored by their coaches. In my opinion a tool like this is most valuable to help create awareness around the importance of having a balanced life and to support subsequent goal-setting for improving specific areas of a life.
Interpreting the results from this kind of tool is best done with someone who has experience in this area – like a coach or a trained mentor or even someone with the right experience and background within the HR or Learning and Development departments.
