Life Coaching in Schools

Life Coaching for students

Life coaching is an important aspect of school life that not only helps students to overcome their weaknesses and fear, but also makes them enthusiastic about their life and dreams. A life coach assists the students to pursue and achieve their goals in life.

How it works in the school

Life coaches are being considered by schools as a way to target the whole student not just the grades. The goal is to assist students in developing a strong foundation of self-awareness, organization, responsibility, and inner motivation to succeed in school, college, and beyond. 

A life coach will bring to light different aspects of a student’s life and how they are interconnected through specially designed group and one-on-one sessions. Students engage in a variety of activities to develop basic but important systems, address family and friend relationships, investigate core motivation and learning styles, construct a personal mission statement, and develop leadership skills.
