1. The Future and Renewal (FAR) Assessment: Introduction

Welcome to the Future and Renewal (FAR) Self-Assessment Tool.


- The core of the tool consists of 50 statements related to self-renewal and personal planning effectiveness.

- I have used a very straightforward Web-based survey application to create the tool. All you need to do is check the box indicating the extent to which each statement is true for you.

- The entire diagnostic (60 questions) takes 15 minutes or less to complete.


- Your responses will provide you a framework for understanding your attitudes toward the future, your readiness for self-renewal, and your personal planning and effectiveness skills.

- If you currently work with a coach or plan to do so, your responses will provide both of you with a framework and launchpad for your discussions.

- In return for taking the time to complete this diagnostic, you are eligible to receive a free 30-minute telephone debriefing session to discuss your results and how to use them.

- Please note, I will not use your e-mail address to send you unwanted "spam" or share it with anyone else. If you would rather just obtain your results and skip the debriefing session, I will be happy to simply e-mail your results to you.
