Coaching Sessions with IFC Coach Carey Borkoski, EdD

Fall 2021
What are your academic and professional goals? What are your core values? How are you honoring these values? How do your goals and core values align? These are just a few questions that you can explore in a Hop-in Coaching session. These sessions are being offered to SOE students for the first time this fall.
Coaches employ a set of tools that includes powerful questions, active listening, curiosity and staying in a moment all to unearth and amplify an individual’s values, interests, and gifts. While mentor and academic advising relationships thrive on giving advice and assessing choices and decisions, coaching relies on the art of inquiry and presence to impact individuals in client-guided topics and interest areas.
Whether you want to identify your core values, articulate academic or professional goals or just explore something that came up during the day, coaching offers a way to discern your own interests and plans from external pressures and influences. It represents a collaborative way to practice listening to and trusting your intuition and finding your voice.
Regardless of experience, context, or circumstance, there are enormous personal and professional benefits to coaching. Trained coaches use powerful questions to elevate and unlock your potential and possibilities. Coaching uses authentic inquiry and active listening to help individuals and groups notice, name, and navigate their experiences.
For Academic Year 2022-2023, the Student Affairs Office is excited to offer several coaching opportunities for any currently enrolled SOE student. This includes one-on-one coaching sessions, group coaching, and several short-term workshops.
Please stay tuned in August for details on all of the upcoming coaching events.
