Connect for Success
We Support Your Personal Development, Well-being and Academic Success
We believe that all students are capable of developing the capacity to be successful learners. Students who are interested in taking action towards enhancing their resilience and well-being and achieving their academic goals are encouraged check us out.
Collaborate with the Success Coach to gain support for personal & professional development and improving self-regulation of learning, well-being and success. Plan to meet with the Success Coach for minimally 3 up to 6 coaching conversations. Augment that with Student Success Coaching Workshops as well those from other support services on Campus.
If you elect to start with a workshop, research would strongly suggest you engage in follow-up coaching conversations in order to put the new knowledge and skills learned in the workshop into practice.
“The authors found that while their training intervention with managers increased manager productivity by 22%, adding a one-to-one (8-week) coaching intervention after the training pushed productivity to 88%”
