The same wind blows on all of us: the economic wind; the political wind; the social wind; the wind of failure and the wind of success. It’s not the blowing of the wind, it’s the set of the sail. The difference in arrival in 5 years, 10 years and 15 years isn’t the blowing of the wind, it’s the set of the sail. The difference in arrival is the set of the sail.    ~Jim Rohn

What the coach/advisor is trying to do is get the student to focus on one or two key strengths and see how it aligns with what they envision about their future.

This section can be tailored to fit the needs of any student. If a student knows his or her chosen career path, the coach/advisor can go through each section, especially the preferences, and make sure the student’s chosen career path aligns with what he or she enjoys. If the student has yet to choose a career path, the coach/advisor can go through each section, especially the preferences, and see if the student can find some preferences or strengths they can choose a possible career from. The coach/advisor may jump to “Your Ideal Career” or another section from the coaching modules. Remind the student that they should seek employment that makes the best use of the strong areas and motivations because that will increase work satisfaction and the likelihood of success. View a Sample Report.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]The Career Options Report: Making Good On The Promise

With these activities comes an education plan, based on the amount of education the career requires or how much the student is interested in continuing their education. View a Sample Report.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Emerging Leadership Strengths and Gaps: Making the Choice to Become a Leader Worth Following

It is through the language we use and the stories we tell that we derive meaning. It is through students’ personal narratives – life scripts – that they are either limited or ideally, empowered. In Narrative Based Coaching (NBC), students engage in a process of self-discovery and have the potential to shape who they know themselves to be. The questions asked in a session are not designed to simply elicit answers, but rather to generate an experience. The coaching questions are engineered to encourage students to take ownership of their strengths, while externalizing their challenges. In doing so, they can dialogue with a coach about possible solutions, and routes to positive change from a strength based perspective, without the effects of shame or defensiveness. The coaching process enables students to participate as collaborators, deepening their awareness and ability to articulate their story to prospective employers. The potential for transformation as a college student is ignited as scripts are updated and they proactively navigate the territory between graduation and gainful employment with more skill, confidence and purpose.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Why Narrative-Based Coaching
Narrative Based Coaching was inspired by strength-based coaching, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Neuro-linguistic Programming and Narrative Therapy. It is informed by a decade of direct to student coaching where the goal is to create lasting and substantive change. Most approaches to student coaching ask students “Where are you now, where do you want to be, and how are you going to get there?” Deeper coaching takes it a step further by inquiring into a student’s “why” as in “Why does this goal matter to you?”. NBC sets itself apart by addressing the matter critical to supporting the execution of both of these questions which is “Who do you know yourself to be?” When students are able to see themselves and experience themselves as resilient agents of change, the heavy lifting has been met. In other words, when “life gets in the way” – as it always does -students are equipped to weather the storm with greater grit and fortitude. Even the most well laid out plan and the most inspired “why” are at risk when students are not operating from a confident personal narrative. NBC provides just this, serving as the bedrock from which meaningful career exploration and gainful employment can be achieved.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Narrative-Based Coaching Sessions

A minimum of seven individual narrative-based coaching sessions have been designed to help the coach/advisor meaningfully connect with the student. Each session corresponds with the Harrison Assessment Reports that are recommended in the 5 to Arrive Model. A coaching session form is completed by the student at the conclusion of each session.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/edupro_container][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1504121013542{margin-top: 55px !important;margin-right: 55px !important;margin-bottom: 55px !important;margin-left: 55px !important;}”][vc_column][edupro_container][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”1888″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][edupro_heading text_align=”text-left” title_fonts=”font_family:Roboto%20Condensed%3A300%2C300italic%2Cregular%2Citalic%2C700%2C700italic|font_style:700%20bold%3A700%3Anormal” title=”Personal Change through a Commitment to Action” line_color=”#0054a4″ line_width=”100px” line_height=”2px” line_margin_bottom=”5px” title_color=”#212121″ title_font_size=”30px”][/edupro_heading][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”11/12″][vc_column_text]The Story Starts With Creating a Bigger Future

The reality is that most students want to create a bigger future, but don’t know how to. Today, students come to a college campus at 18 years old and think their ticket to a substantial career is created by being eligible for the position which they have been told is a college degree. What most learn along the way is that it’s just as much (if not more) about suitability (their behavior) and the relationships they create. It’s the coach/advisors job to help the student unpack their script, embrace the things that they have learned from their script and write a new script about a bigger future. The coach/advisor facilitates discussion about the students’ desired future so that they can document action steps resulting in personal change.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/edupro_container][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”11/12″][vc_cta h2=”The 5 to Arrive Model was designed with flexibility in mind. ” el_width=”md” css=”.vc_custom_1503163215340{background-color: #ffffff !important;}”]Innovative teaching, learning and assessment methods help students engage in the education process. Helping students develop transferable skills and abilities will make them attractive to potential employers and helpful across different areas of life: at school, socially and professionally. Preparing students to develop a range of knowledge, skills, behaviors and attributes which will enable them to be successful not just in employment, but in life, is a University-wide responsibility. Employability is more important now than ever before in light of the complex world graduates are entering. The 5 to Arrive is available as a turnkey model or we can customize it to fit your needs.
