Structure

Structure is the framework. It includes the following components: clearly defined vision and goals, systems for managing daily life, a time management system, priorities of appointments, and creating daily habits.

Support

Support provides an avenue for the individual to tell his/her personal story. Understanding the individual is critical to establish a trusting relationship. The coach provides empathy, feedback, and accountability.

Skills

Skills enable an individual’s world to become more consistent and predictable. Identifying personal strengths and weaknesses is the first step in this process. Working from one’s area of strength is critical. Examples of skills may include: time management, goal setting, setting boundaries, and organizational skills.

Strategies

Strategies assist the individual in navigating his/her daily life and in achieving his/her goals. An array of strategies can be taught including: understanding energy level and when to engage in tasks, pattern learning, setting realistic start and stop times for each action, and setting up rewards.
