What is Executive functioning?

Executive Function“are a set of processes that all have to do with managing oneself and one’s resources in order to achieve a goal. It is an umbrella term for the neurologically-based skills involving mental control and self-regulation.”
-Drs. Gerard A. Gioia, Peter K. Isquith, Steven C. Guy, and Lauren Kenworthy (2000)

Weaknesses in a set of important mental skills that are key to learning and get things done. These skills are controlled by the area of the brain called Prefrontal Cortex.

Areas of weakness include (i.e; organizing, planning and prioritizing, starting and completing tasks, doing things independently, regulating emotions, self-monitoring keeping track of what you are doing and more).

Executive function coaching helps clients identify which skills are strengths and weaknesses, working together on goals to overcome weak executive functions to successfully be able to complete homework on time, manage time with family and friendship to maintain relationships and live independently as an adult.

My coaching program focuses on learning a clear understanding of executive functioning and the many ways it impacts academic performance, self-regulation, time management, and more. Shift our thoughts, awareness on how we link between our emotions and learning to create a better habit change.

Learn essential tools and strategies to help strengthen an individual’s organized thinking and improve motivation and organizational skills. Skills that are holding us back from getting things done, how to balance our time to maintain our  relationships with peers, adults and family.

What Skills Will Be Coached?

It depends on individual needs. Focus is identifying our self-awareness, what is holding us back from connecting with others and what we are struggling in emotionally, socially or academically in the current environment we are in.

Targeting and diving deep into the root cause of the area of our core values, strengths and challenges we have by boosting and putting Social Emotional Intelligence skills into action. Rather than focusing on a particular problem (examples: “poor social skills” “stress management” or “anxiety”) we will focus on competencies that build positive behaviors and reduce negative behaviors to improve in the skill we want to thrive and improve in.  

Looking at how our emotions and behavior is affecting us thrive and then creating a action step plan on how to be successful in those areas.

“Any human being will blossom in a hundred
unexpected talents and capacities simply by being
given the opportunity to do so.”
– Doris Lessing

What is your coaching approach?

I do NOT believe you should have a one-approach-fits-all mentality as a coach. I assess what approach works best for your child. I am a strong believer and alignment with Social and Emotional Intelligence, I try to be very solution-focused.

Exposure to Mindfulness (Growth mindset), Self-Science, Social Thinking, Social Emotional Learning (SEL),  Emotional Intelligence (EQ), Emotional literacy is typically an integral part of my coaching approach and style.

In our initial session, we will work together to find the approach that will be the most effective with your child.

Coaching Process Focus: 

Initial measure skills with an assessment

Create a Action Step Plan (I have a 3 step action plan process I teach)

  1. Self-Awareness, Learning about ourselves and how to act certain situations. Raising awareness in how we control and use our own emotions so we can build self-awareness of whats holding us back from getting better and thriving in those situations. Gaining awareness of their own emotions, intentions, and thoughts so can they become aware of others.
  2. Practice and build Social Emotional Intelligence skills
  3. Transition to apply skills to use in community (i.e; work, classroom, home, peers and adults etc.)

Using Evidence-based strategies and essential tools of processes that helps you get from where you are, to where you want to be. Teaching Important social components in interactions and social situations needed in everyday in the community. Learning to how to shift our thoughts and the direct link between emotions and learning.

Expectations and measurable goals are set and agreed upon to help achieve action goals to connect with others to succeed at school, work, careers and in relationships.

How long is coaching session and what is the cost?

Typically a session runs 30-55 minutes long. I have a sliding scale $40-$150.00 based on length and sessions needed. While a single session is valuable and leads to identifying barriers of a specific skills to self- regulate Social-Executive Functioning, the real benefit of working with a coach is experienced through an ongoing relationship aimed at achieving your goals, from start to finish by creating long-term positive support.

What is Social and Emotional Learning and Emotional Intelligence?

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

Specific social-emotional skills like self-awareness, self-management, empathy, perspective taking, and cooperation. They are lessons in Emotional Intelligence aka (EQ,EI). In short, getting smarter with your feelings.

Emotional intelligence is the ability to perceive emotions, to access and generate emotions so as to assist thought, to understand emotions and emotional knowledge, and to reflectively regulate emotions so as to promote emotional and intellectual growth. Mayer & Salovey, 1997.

As humans are predominantly social, understanding emotions in oneself and others is an important skill to have, and a good part of the brain is devoted to that effort.

As such, emotional and social development are tightly linked to one another. Another key component of emotional development, namely emotion regulation, is not less crucial to socialization. In social activities (e.g., being at school), it is often necessary to control emotional reactions, either positive (e.g., excitement) or negative (e.g., frustration) in order to accommodate to norms and goals. Therefore, the development of executive control is central to emotion regulation.

Social-Emotional Learning as described at www.CASEL.org

I’m a strong believer in Social Emotional Learning and teach all my students and clients how to gain self-awareness of our social behavior as its determined by our social cognition.  Has a large affect in how we think and problem solve in situations.
