Quite often I coach students with parents who are tired of asking their kids about college essays, "practical" major choices and job applications. If you are a parent who wants the best for your son or daughter but isn't sure how to help, you should consider a coach who understands just how scary this step is for your kids before, during and after college.
Maybe they just need a new perspective on procrastination to apply to college or an internship? Or perhaps they need to flex the muscles that will make them successful and not just employed. As a full faculty member on the admissions board at the U of MN and a certified coach, I can see the possibility in students that will help them consider a program of study, a career path or a school that will not waste everyone's time, money and emotion. I have found that using a diagonal thinking tool and a bigger game board from my coaching practice motivates individuals beyond their own expectations. And yours.
I am not their parent. I am their coach.
Make a move to get some coaching for your son or daughter before they move into your basement.
(I also conduct free college coaching evenings for parents.)
