For coaches looking to debrief their coachees on their PAIRIN results, we recommend using the PAIRIN individual debrief mode. It is a simple way to approach and work with the data after your coachee has completed the MEASURE aspect of the PAIRIN process (taking the PAIRIN survey). This model will guide you in reading how data is MAPPED in the system and using it to help DEVELOP people.
The method is outlined below. The acronym for each of the steps spells ‘“PAIRIN”, an easy way for you to remember the process!
- Preparation: here you want to prepare both your coachee and yourself. This involves establishing a relationship, explaining the tool and inviting them to survey if they haven’t already.
- Alert check: once the coachee has taken the survey - check that the data provided is reliable and does not contain any validity alerts. More on validity alerts here.
- Identify: here you'll look at three areas (1) top qualities to affirm, (2) real-ideal score gaps to learn, and (3) gaps to relevant targets (like the Imperatives) to learn
- Report: create a report of the attributes you want to coachee to review prior to your time together.
- Invite: next you will want to invite your coachee to the debrief session.
- Navigation 1-2-3: this is your actual execution of the debrief or any session in which you take the coach approach. Here your overarching goal is to help the person navigate from the present to their desired possible.
The PAIRIN individual debrief model is discussed in greater depth, with opportunity for practice and feedback, in the PAIRINOLOGY 201 course.
