Coaching for Young People

With so much interaction via social media these days, it is not easy for young people to accept there is more to social skills than just being able to text, email or post messages on Facebook

These new communication media are here to stay. Without the ability to perform conventional social skills, or acquire an understanding of the expected customs and practices of potential employers, being successful at interviews for jobs or university placement is less likely.

It is without doubt a ‘given’ that young adults have all the skills they need to access information via the internet; do they though, have the awareness of the resources to:

  • set goals to get where they want to be?
  • develop the interpersonal skills to communicate effectively?
  • discover their beliefs and values?
  • self evaluate so they see themselves how others see them?

With the pace at which children grow into young adults now, sometimes these important issues tend to be overlooked so coaching for young people is as important as their academic education.

Talents, natural gifts and abilities often go unnoticed even though they are just waiting to be discovered. Coaching helps to find these untapped resources which can undoubtedly completely change the direction and goals of a young person from:

“This is where I am going because I don’t know what else to do” to
“I absolutely know this is where I want to go and what I want to do”

Life changing discoveries can be made if coaching is given at the right time and can turn the future of a young person into one of fulfillment and success, leading to a happier more productive individual all round.
