An Executive Function Coaches Advice for Students

As Kate ponders on her past high school years, she gives some key advice that she wishes she would have known while in high school:
  • Having a firmer grasp on the growth mindset and knowing that effort gets results, not raw ability.
  • A better sense of knowing that you are not alone in your feelings of internal angst and judgement.
  • Knowing that having stress and anxiety are not a badge of honor.

Life Skills for Students

Kate expands upon the process where executive function coaches assist in developing a meta-cognitive piece where students can become more aware of their own habits and how they work best. This, in turn teaches them how to get the outcomes they want – a skill we all need. Dr. Aviva points out that it truly sound like executive functioning can improve the overall quality of people’s lives.
