Inherent in the structure of academic coaching is the engineering design process, with which engineering coaches will be comfortable and familiar: identify the underlying problem, explore solutions, create a timeline and action items, along with accountability and sharing of results (and revisiting the coaching process, if needed). Using this process in coaching with students or with mentees in a corporate setting is a valuable tool. Included in this introduction to coaching is a discussion of how we can use coaching to empower women and male allies to challenge biased cultural "norms".
Learn how coaching skills can help you inspire and hold others accountable to their highest and best selves by:
- Questioning negative assumptions they might be making about themselves that are actually a result of cultural/societal norms or implicit/explicit bias.
- Setting goals and action plans to persist in spite of this bias.
- Taking initiative and ownership of education and preparation for professional work.
- Embracing challenges to set them apart as young professionals.
- Thinking creatively, innovating, and taking positive risks.
- Influencing and impacting others with critical interpersonal and communication skills.
- Cultivating professional connections through internships and networking opportunities.
Join us to experience how coaching promotes the reflection, motivation, and accountability that students, interns, and recent graduates need to survive and thrive academically and professionally.
