Whether a student or someone in a career requires certain executive functions that will help them manage themselves, these control your emotions, stay focused, take the initiative, organize your activities, plan, and set priorities. An important function is to have the ability to understand when we are not succeeding and have gone off track and then being aware of what needs to be done to get back.
While these functions are natural skills, executive functioning coaching can go a long way in increasing a person’s capacity, even students, to develop the skills further than they naturally have. This will increase their capacity to plan and meet goals, have greater self-control, follow various directions simultaneously even if there is an interruption, and stay focused even if there are distractions.
The goal of coaching for executive functioning is to help people to become more effective. Skills can be learned that help them well beyond any present challenges that are being faced. You will know that everything has a particular place and time, which requires you to be organized. It will help you to plan everything that you do, set priorities for tasks and the time that they need to be finished. It can help you manage your time and see that all you do is done when you have available. Executive functioning coaching can help you to regulate yourself, always be on track, and adapt yourself to reach the goals that you have set for yourself. Above all, it can also help you accept responsibility for whatever the results are and help you learn from the experience of failures to find ways to improve.
Persons with the right executive function skills can change their lives and behavior, be accountable, and succeed in whatever job they undertake.
