CCEs: 1.0 in Core Competencies
When faced with challenges or disappointments, most kids don’t have the tools to handle them. As a result, they often get down on themselves or give up on themselves – developing belief systems that can hold them back for the rest of their lives. As coaches, we’ve seen the impact of childhood events on adult clients over-and-over again!
Coaching isn’t just for grownups. It’s a game changer for our youth when they learn how to break through limiting beliefs and proactively create supportive beliefs to help them thrive. Life coaching can help kids learn how to use the power of their thoughts to handle the ups and downs of growing up and to develop a mindset for creating happiness, confidence, and success in life.
In this session coaches will learn about three mindset skills that all kids should learn before the age of 10 and how they can use stories and activities to coach kids (the skills work for grownup clients too).
This is for you if:
* You are a parent or have kids in your life
* You have clients who are parents
* You work with kids or want to work with kids
Three learning objectives:
1. Why life coaching is critical for our youth
2. Three mindset skills to help kids (and grownups) overcome disappointment and move forward empowered
3. How you can use stories to evoke awareness, learning, and action in kids
