Communicator Style Short Form (12-item including Communicator Image)

The following questions will provide you with a brief description of a communication style. You will be asked to respond to each question about how much you agree your coach does what the description says.

There are no right or wrong answers. Do not spend too much time on any one question, instead, let your first thought be your guide. Try to answer as honestly as possible. Some questions will be hard to answer because you honestly do not know the answer, but try to determine which way you are leaning and answer in that direction.

An example item could be:

“Your head coach is comfortable with all varieties of athletes, laughs easily, and has a voice that is very easy to recognize.”

An example response could be: You would circle your level agreement with how much this description fits your head coach’s behaviors

Strongly Disagree Disagree Neither Disagree nor Agree Agree Strongly

Self-Scoring Instructions:

For Questions 1 – 10, the higher scores indicate more alignment with those types of communicator styles. For example, if you score a 5, then the athlete thinks you represent that communicator style fully. Since you are asking multiple athletes to complete this assessment, you will need to get the average score for EACH question. For example, if you have three (3) athletes completing this assessment, you will add up each of their scores for you on question 1 then divide the total by 3. The resulting score (the average score for that question) for question 1 is YOUR final score for question 1. You need to repeat this process for each question. Report your final, average score for each question in the table below.

For questions 11 & 12, add the two scores together then divide the total by 2 (get the average of the two questions). The higher the average score indicates a more positive communicator image. For these two questions, you need to average questions 11 & 12 together for EACH athlete’s response THEN add up each average score and divide by the number of athletes that took this assessment to get your final score. For example, if three athletes completed this for you, for EACH ATHLETE, get the average score for questions 11 & 12 then add up all three averages and divide by 3 to get your final score for these questions.

Below shows you which communicator style was measured by each question:

Question # Communicator Style Measured Your Final (Averaged) Scores
