Why Executive Functioning Organizational Coaching Is Important for College Success

When college students struggle with their schoolwork, it’s not always because they are less skilled or less intelligent than their peers. In many instances, a student’s academic difficulties are the result of poor executive functioning skills. And that’s where our executive functioning organizational coaching services come in.

Executive functioning refers to the cognitive processes and brain functions that affect an individual’s behavior. It allows a person to organize information, prioritize ideas, initiate or start tasks, set goals and develop a course of action to achieve them, follow steps for problem-solving, have flexibility in handling different ideas or tasks, focus, and retain and manipulate information.

A well-developed organizational skills are some of the most important benefits of having strong executive functioning skills. This is especially important for students, as executive functioning and organizational skills allow individuals to prioritize, self-direct, focus attention, and self-monitor.

With executive functioning organizational coaching, students learn valuable tools and strategies that will allow them to not only keep a clutter-free desk or efficiently write down a to-do list. These techniques are particularly valuable for college and university students with highly demanding coursework.
