Topic Title:  “Life Coaching Isn’t Just for Grownups – Three Skills Every Child Should Learn Before the Age of 10”

Topic Description:

When faced with challenges or disappointments, most kids don’t have the tools to handle them. As a result, they often get down on themselves or give up on themselves – developing belief systems that can hold them back for the rest of their lives. As coaches, we’ve seen the impact of childhood events on adult clients over-and-over again!

Coaching isn’t just for grownups. It’s a game changer for our youth when they learn how to break through limiting beliefs and proactively create supportive beliefs to help them thrive. Life coaching can help kids learn how to use the power of their thoughts to handle the ups and downs of growing up and to develop a mindset for creating happiness, confidence, and success in life.

In this session coaches will learn about three mindset skills that all kids should learn before the age of 10 and how they can use stories and activities to coach kids (the skills work for grownup clients too).

Three learning objectives:

  • Why life coaching is critical for our youth
  • Three traps that crush self-esteem and mindset skills that can help kids beat those traps
  • Activities you can use immediately to help children practice these mindset skills
  • How you can use coaching stories to evoke awareness, learning, and action in children

Testimonials

Excerpts from Jack Canfield’s Interview of Renaye Thornborrow

“ That is so valuable because we’re not learning that in school…

I’m sitting here thinking I need to tell every trainer I’ve ever trained, which is about 4000 of them, go get trained by you. Add this to their tool bag….

I was one of the founders of the National Council for Self-Esteem way back when. And the work you’re doing is so far beyond what anyone was doing…I feel grateful that you’re doing the work you’re doing. It’s really, really important….

If you have children, if you have grandchildren, if you’re a teacher, if you’re a coach, if you’re anyone working with children or care about children, I’m sitting here. And I don’t say this very often. I highly recommend what you’re doing. It is so valuable, and it’s so complete. That’s what I love about it and, obviously, really effective.”

Excerpts from Peter J Reding Interview of Renaye Thornborrow

“As a visionary in coaching I know you see a world where it doesn’t have to be the way it is now….

Imagine the world where the conditioning we talk about in adult Life coaching is actually a positive conditioning,…children can negotiate who they are, what they want.…

You are doing life changing work [for children] – If I can [shift my thinking] when I’m 10- years-old around my sleep, I can do it when I’m 18-years-old and getting ready for exams or when I’m 25-years-old when I’m in my first major position…I can choose thoughts that are more beneficial – that help me change my attitude…It’s just brilliant. Wow! Wow, wow, wow!”

What I love about this is that it’s deep transformational work….You’re teaching [children] how to Learn, how to think, how to resolve issues that are going on in their lives for themselves….

You’re doing a lot of right for the world…l thank you for your energy, your passion, and your offering to the world….I highly recommend that those of you who have any inclination of working with kids to please call Renaye….she is passionate and there to support you.”

Testimonials from ICF LA Chapter Training

“We recently had a solid tele-class with the Los Angeles Chapter of the International Coaching Federation, entitled “Life Coaching Isn’t Just for Grownups”. How true is the name of that event. Renaye shared powerful tools for coaching kids, which really are useful and relate to adults too. If you want to learn more about coaching kids, Renaye is your “GO TO” person on this topic.”
– Barry Bettman, PCC

“Really loved the exercises [Renaye] introduced. Found the whole thing fascinating and enriching. It certainly made me see what is possible for our world if more kids had this type of coaching (and parenting) in their lives.”
-Tara

“I loved it! Very well organized and smart concepts. Even though this [training] was geared toward coaching kids, I can also see how to apply this to adults…One of my favorite trainings.”
– ICFLA attendee

“Wow! So much. The power of story the traps and tools for helping kids create awareness and learn to separate events from who they are…. Taking adult ideas and making them so accessible for younger kids is brilliant. I have 6-year-old twins so super helpful. One of the most valuable ICF trainings. Thank you!”
– Mary Allen

I was thrilled to interview Renaye Thornborrow as part of my Unboxed Brain Series – a monthly program where I spotlight out-of-the box thinkers who are bringing creative solutions to the world.

She is engaging, creative, generous and knows her stuff. What I love about her innovative approach is that it enables coaches to use stories and engaging activities to bring life coaching to kids.

Her innovative certification program is exactly what the industry, and parents for that matter, need in this arena. My audience loved her and she was fun and easy to work with.

If you get the chance to hear her speak or take part in her programs, do it. You won’t be disappointed.

Renaye Thornborrow recently provided a continuing education program for our group of certified coaches.

Her program for coaching kids serves as a great resource for divorce coaches because either parents need something to help them to focus on the children during divorce AND divorce coaches can benefit from adding coaching for children to their services.

Renaye is very engaging, has a gracious and direct manner and is so innovative in her approach to coaching children through stories.

I wish I were a kid again because I could have benefited greatly from having a coach when my self-esteem hit the skids after the death of my mother at the tender age of eight.
