1) What is Teen Success Coaching?
The teen years are filled with growth, promise, trials, and tribulations. During this trying period, teens receive mixed messages from the many voices and experiences in every facet of their lives: academics, sports, social situations, media, music, Internet, family life, money matters, dating, work, abuse, addiction, depression, and peer pressure. Through this relentless whirlwind of voices and experiences, teens are forced and often inadquately prepared to make tough life-changing decisions that can move them further away or closer to True GREATNESS.

The structure of Ty's Teen Success Coaching has been well tested and is designed to yield the greatest returns in the shortest amount of time. Like many therapeutic situations you choose the focus. Unlike many therapeutic situations, it is Coach Ty's role to move the bi-weekly conversation along in order to support your goals and intentions. The emphasis is on gently shifting a teen's perspective in order to move beyond the obvious and the habitual.

There are short pre-session and post-session forms to fill out in order to guide and give purpose to each coaching session. Furthermore, each session ends with you committing to an "Action Plan" for the next session or coming month. In order to maintain the integrity and momentum of the coaching process, coaching contracts or "agreements" are often made for a minimum of 3 months. (Short-term coaching and consulting is also available).

I draw from techniques such as mentoring, values assessment, behavior modification, habits assessment, and goal setting; and from a number of disciplines including psychology, sociology, and business.

Special Note: ALL New Teen Coaching Clients must have a signed Parental Consent Form For Success Coaching Sessions with Ty, before Ty Howard will agree to work with a Teen or Teen Group.

Ty's Teen Success Coaching is most often conducted by telephone (97% of the time), and sometimes via email.  (See Ty's Teen Success Coaching Packages)

2) What is the difference between coaching and therapy?
Psychotherapy is a wonderful, powerful tool for pathological behaviors and deep wounds that are characterized by depression and anxiety. Much of our discomfort, however, can be alleviated by adopting new behaviors and by tweaking worn out viewpoints, attitudes and resentments.

Therapy focuses on analysis and interpretation; in coaching, the emphasis is on changing how you experience life. Therapy sessions can end with the client feeling "unfinished"; at the end of each coaching session you, as my client, reach a wholly satisfying outcome that becomes the springboard for your next choices, actions, and decisions. This is a weekly phenomenon.

3) What is the difference between coaching and talking to a friend?
Without a doubt the coaching conversation is friendly and compassionate but unlike talking with a friend, coaching offers undistracted listening that is honest and exceptionally objective. The questions asked are designed with YOUR best interests at heart; there is no hidden agenda.

As your coach, Ty will have a myriad of resources to assist you in developing and pursuing your vision so that you achieve positive, permanent results. He has been trained to take you through the coaching conversation and help you create a meaningful action plan, based on your intentions and desires.

4) What is the difference between coaching and tutoring?
Though it may be beneficial or necessary to review and refine a young client’s study habits, Ty DOES NOT help clients with their homework or with the content or structure of a project. Ty coaches all teen clients on motivation, time management, life skills, success skills, general organizational skills and/or how to access information from experts.

5) What are the qualities of a great coach?
• Intelligence
• Compassion
• Creativity
• Optimism
• Honesty
• Humor
• A motivator
• Dedication to their clients’ progress
• Great training and experience in their niche
• Exceptional listening and communication skills
• A sense of professionalism and integrity – they uphold their part of the Coaching Agreement, they maintain healthy boundaries, and they have a coach of their own to inspire their own growth.

6) What types of teens does Ty normally coach?

They are:
• Success-oriented. They are successful in other parts of their lives and want to have that for their family-life.
• Goal-oriented. They can set meaningful coaching goals for themselves and follow through on the footwork.
• Responsible
• Brave-hearted
• Self-reflective
• Resilient
• Teachable
• Honest
• Gifted & Talented
• People who can laugh at themselves or their situation.

Ty's also very effective with teens who are:
• At-Risk
• Troubled
• ADD/ADHD
• Verbal
• Inquisitive
• Smart (though not necessarily good students)
• Sassy or Bold
• Creative or Original
• Big-hearted (though they may hide it)
• Courageous
• A bit prickly with their parents and/or teachers!

Ty's Teen Success Coaching is most often conducted by telephone (97% of the time), and sometimes via email.  (See Ty's Teen Success Coaching Packages)

7) What about confidentiality?
Ty's client’s trust is sacred to him. He does not give out clients’ names or contact information without their permission. He does not discuss client sessions, unless he does so anonymously, with a trusted professional, to better serve his clients. If Ty believes that someone’s life is in danger, he will consult with the proper authorities (a teen's parents, for instance).

Sometimes teen clients tell him things that they want their parents to know but they don’t know how to approach these adults that they care about so much. They may be afraid of being dismissed as "overly dramatic," "ridiculous," or "unimportant." In these situations, Ty helps teens and parents come together in a supportive atmosphere of mutual respect so that both parties are able to express what is in their hearts.

9) Why do we have a Coaching Agreement?
To kick-start momentum and to facilitate progress requires a commitment from both client and coach, so we begin with a Coaching Agreement that establishes a foundation for our work together. The process of signing affirms OUR intention to give 100% to YOUR best interests and those of your family.

In part the Coaching Agreement reads:

As your coach, you can expect me to:
1. Be a partner in bringing out the best in you.
2. Provide safety, encouragement, support, and careful listening.
3. Respect the confidentiality of the agreement we make.
4. Promote discovery of new insights, and ask questions or offer feedback to that end.
5. Provide outside referrals for services you may wish to explore.

As my client, I expect that you will:
1. Cultivate a core honesty with yourself.
2. Commit yourself to intentions that are truly meaningful to you.
3. Be open to my feedback, and keep me informed as to what is and is not working for you.
4. Take ownership for your progress and your accomplishments.
5. Take financial responsibility for your coaching time.

Special Note: ALL new Teen Coaching Clients must have a signed Parental Consent Form For Success Coaching Sessions with Ty, before Ty Howard will agree to work with a Teen or Teen Group.
