What Is Executive Functioning Coaching?

Themba Tutors offers a pragmatic and straightforward approach for Organizational & Executive Functioning Coaching.

 

Executive functioning skills are usually first developed in early childhood to teen years and continue into the mid-20s. In some instances, younger children may lag behind their peers for a while in terms of mastering executive functioning skills. But as they get older, they may encounter fewer challenges as teens and young adults. However, without proper development of executive functioning skills, adults and professionals may struggle to meet some demands in their careers and personal lives.

Who Benefits from Executive Functioning Coaching?

Themba Tutors’ executive function coaching is designed to help adults and professionals, who are struggling to manage daily life demands due to ADHD, diagnosed executive functioning deficits, or other learning differences. We also coach adults and professionals who did not receive a formal diagnosis. For many of these individuals, executive functioning struggles often lead to frustration and feeling discouraged or inadequate. This is especially true when their challenges are perceived as laziness.

 

Most of the clients we work with are very bright but haven’t been taught the tools and strategies required to succeed.  This is of particular note, as according to according to renowned Stanford psychologist and author Carol Dweck, it’s not always intelligence, talent, or education that determines how far you will go in life. In fact, achieving your goals and reaching your objectives mostly rely on one thing–your mindset. In particular, having a growth mindset. Read our blog Carol Dweck’s Fixed and Growth Mindset: How You Think Can Determine Your Success to know more about mindsetting and how to develop a growth mindset.

Our executive function coaching provides the encouragement, strategies, and insight they need to become more effective and confident in their daily personal and professional lives.

Our Coaches and Tutors Can Help Overcome These Challenges:

 

  • Trouble starting and/or completing tasks
  • Difficulty prioritizing tasks
  • Forgetting what was just heard or read
  • Trouble following directions or a sequence of steps given to them
  • Panicking when rules or routines change
  • Trouble changing and shifting focus from one task to another
  • Getting overly emotional and fixated on things
  • Trouble organizing their thoughts into words and ideas
  • Trouble keeping track of their belongings
  • Trouble managing their time

 

Clients themselves are not the only ones getting the benefits of executive function coaching. Partners and family members often tell us that household friction is reduced with coaching in place. Teachers and colleagues also report positive shifts in individuals who receive our coaching service.

What Are Executive Functioning Strategies?

We understand that even bright, successful adults need help. Our expert executive function tutors and coaches work with both adults and professionals. Our clients include individuals working in business, law, medicine, the arts, and various other fields.

 

Some of the strategies our executive function coaches employ are:

 

  • Positive reinforcement
  • Identifying strengths to boost self-confidence
  • Modeling organizational skills
  • Creating systems to help plan and prioritize tasks and long-term projects
  • Teaching effective time-management skills
  • Introducing coping mechanisms to counter limitations
  • Creating techniques for problem solving and analysis
  • Developing metacognitive approaches, such as self-monitoring and reflection

  • Planning & prioritizing
  • Organization
  • Task initiation

Our executive function coaches and tutors help adults and professionals perform better in their work environment. Putting their strengths to best use is one of the things we aim to achieve. Our specialists will help you work around challenges and find ways to overcome difficulties through proper adult coaching for executive functioning skills.

 

Goal-Setting

Goal-setting, in particular, is an action  that requires more than selecting an objective or desired result. According to author James Clear, goal-setting involves not only honing in on a target but also identifying the steps to achieve them and asking yourself what sacrifices, changes and responsibilities you are willing to do to reach your objective. Clear writes more about the process of goal-setting in his article Goal-Setting: A Scientific Guide to Setting and Achieving Goals, where he discusses how to set achievable goals, how to measure them, and how to be consistent.

Decision-Making

Contrary to what most of us may believe, sound decision-making skills have nothing to do with intelligence. According to The Science of Decision Making: Why Smart People Do Dumb Things, for many, decision-making depends on one’s personal beliefs and the beliefs of those around them–particularly of people in their community whose opinions they value. Hence, in many instances, our decisions are not based on rationality but on whether they align with our peers’ and community’s beliefs. Unfortunately, this does not always mean it’s the right decision or lead to the right results. Working with an executive functioning coach allows individuals to learn positive decision-making styles that is based on rationality (intuitive vs rational),  yielding optimal results (maximizing vs satisficing), and whether the objective is clear or undefined (combinatorial vs positional) using the DECIDE (Determine, Establish, Consider, Identify, Develop, Evaluate) framework of decision-making.

 

Accountability Partner

Achieving your goal won’t be possible without accountability. Goals require you to identify what costs you’re willing to pay and what sacrifices you’re ready to make to achieve them, but without accountability, you are more likely to go off-track and lose sight of your objective. According to the article Why An Accountability Partner Will Increase Your Chances of Successbeing specific with your goals and firmly committing to it increases your chances from 10 percent to 25 percent.  When you extend this commitment with someone  whom you can trust to hold you responsible, your likelihood of success is at 65 percent. But when you and your partner create specific accountability plans, your chances of success rises to 95 percent. More than just your sounding board, your accountability partner is someone who can guide, coach, and help you stick to your commitments and encourage you to persevere despite unforeseen hurdles. An accountability partner is of great importance as you build positive values, develop good study and work habits,  and strengthen your decision-making and goal-setting skills.
