WHAT WOULD IT HAVE BEEN LIKE FOR YOU, IF YOU HAD A COACH AS A CHILD OR AS A TEENAGER?
Have you considered that you, yourself and your kids are perfect, whole, complete, creative, resourceful and knowing… Well, you ARE and so are they.
We are beyond excited that the Empowermind team is now offering kids and family coaching. Kids Coaching Connection is an award winning, unique, fully approved International Coach Federation program that provides life-coaching skills training. Our focus as coaches is on helping to develop the whole person, recognizing that all aspects of life affect how children and youth learn and their sense of belonging. We have a new vision for working with children and youth that brings together the mind and the heart. For in doing so, we provide children and youth with the values and virtues that will guide them to becoming more productive leaders in their community and the world.
Research indicates the present generation of children and youth worldwide is demonstrating more emotional needs than the last. Educational and recreational programs, as well as families, are recognizing that children and youth are more angry and unruly, more lonely and depressed, more impulsive and aggressive, more stressed and nervous.
Current research and a survey by the International Coaching Federation reports that people who have a coach show:
• increased self-awareness
• higher academic success
• an increased sense of belonging
• an increased ability to take on leadership roles
• an increased ability to set and achieve goals
• lowered stress levels
Increased self-awareness often results from examining one's emotions, behaviours, values and life purpose. This self-awareness helps when making decisions and when having to take action. Self-awareness is one of the foundational requirements of emotional intelligence and is a strong component in academic success. No other program in the world provides this coaching focus for interacting and working with children and youth that is fully approved and provides follow-up support.
The Empowermind team is now offering children, youth and family coaching around issues of self-esteem, bullying, divorce, among other challenging issues.
