Academic Community Graduate Students Succeeding in graduate and post-graduate work is a challenge. Gone are the days of sitting passively in a lecture. Now, critical thinking, time management, self-discipline and original creatively are required. Coaching can bring new perspective on the dynamics of this educational experience, equipping you with knowledge of yourself, and how you can best learn and thrive in this environment. For those who completed their undergraduate work several years in the past, returning to school can be daunting. Coaching can make this transition easier and ground you in the realities of the academic community. A hallmark of graduate school is the opportunity to contribute something unique to the scholarly community, but to do successfully requires diligence and willingness to work in an unstructured environment. Self-management is essential and a coach can help develop the tools necessary for success in school and beyond.
Distant Education/E-Learning Students With the advent on online and distance education courses, it is becoming imperative to have that personal touch that comes from human interaction. An academic coach can serve as this hybrid tutor, advisor and counselor, serving your needs from afar, yet providing the necessary personalized support to help you complete your degree and professional goals.
International Students Studying in a foreign culture can be an exciting opportunity to expand one's horizons and experiences, but can also add additional stress to an already busy school schedule. Academic coaching can walk alongside international students and help them navigate both the cultural and institutional mazes encountered when studying aboard.
Faculty The stress faced by today’s faculty is immense—management, publication deadlines, grading, research and teaching can consume a majority of your waking hours. Academic coaching can help one distill their life and re-evaluate their priorities, discover their strengths/weaknesses and find that rock hard center that enables one to effectively meet their personal goals as well as productively accomplish other responsibilities and duties. If assuming a new position or making a major transition, coaching can help a person uncover the challenges, but also pioneer powerful strategies for meeting their personal and professional needs.
Staff The backbone to any successful educational institution is the staff serving behind the scenes. Coaching can bring a fresh perspective to vital task and enable one to accomplish more with less time and energy, facilitating backstopping abilities and the further flourishing of the institution one serves.
