Aaron GarlandLife Coach for Teens & Young Adults
The TigerTiger Method
The challenge for a young person to get things done, stay reasonably organized, and prioritize their activities enough to keep up with what’s expected, is HUGE! And it increases exponentially when their classes, assignments and tests become disconnected from an overarching purpose.
Executive function is the collection of non-academic skills that have an increasingly significant impact on a young person’s young life. As they grow their command and use of executive skills provides them the toolset to ‘take care of business’ day to day with a minimum of stress and anxiety.
At the base of one’s executive function skills is the question of metacognition: seeing the big picture and thinking about how your thinking influences your movement through that picture. If your efforts aren’t tied to a relevant and desirable outcome it doesn’t take long for your efforts themselves to lose relevance and motivation.
If you’re struggling with time management, organizing your tasks or prioritizing your work this coaching program is for you. And just as importantly, if you’re adrift and not sure what you want to do or why you’re in school, now’s the time to have a meaningful dialogue about who you want to become.
