We recently received this review for Dave Cordle Coaching and were interested to see that it was not about adults – but about children.
“Both my sons have benefitted from coaching sessions with Dave. With just one or two sessions Dave was able to help give encouragement guidance and focus to such matters as further education, considering early career options, structuring CV's and interviewing techniques. It was very re-assuring to be able to arrange for an independent person like Dave to provide a structured framework within which to focus on some goals and target setting. Dave has a good rapport with young people. He is very approachable and a good listener. I would not hesitate to recommend him. Five stars from me!” Janet M.
So we asked Dave to give us some tips and advice about helping children achieve their potential. Here is what he told us:
Parents who care share
(3 things you can do to help your child be successful)
If I asked you, as a parent, “What do you wish for your children in their future?” how would you answer?
Would you say: “The very best” or “I’d wish them the very best that they wish for themselves”, or “happiness”, or something else.
The question is, do you care enough about their future happiness and success to do something about it? What if you could share some key skills with them that will help them to create success on their terms?
But do you know how to start and what to share?
Most young people (and most adults in fact) have no real view of just how many skills and qualities they have, and even less idea of the contributions they make to the world. And because of all the messages they’ve been receiving since they were very young, no notion that in fact, they have a lot of control over what they do and how successful they can be. …or that it is they who define success for themselves, not others.
So far we’ve been talking about “most young people”, “most” this and “most” that. Let’s make this personal: I’m sure who you really care about is your child / children, so let’s talk about them and how you can help them to start setting themselves up for success.
Why is this important?
As with many things, it would be great if you’d already started this, but if you haven’t, NOW is the next best time to start helping your children be the best they can.
