Our strength-based Executive Function Coaching Model at EEC is designed to offer a personalized experience that meets your unique needs. In this blog post, we unpack the four key components that set our approach apart: direct coaching, indirect coaching methods, executive function case management, and regular check-ins. Each element is crafted to help you build and refine essential executive function skills, giving you the flexibility to choose the level of support that best suits your goals. Whether you’re new to the idea of executive function coaching or looking to expand your understanding, this article provides valuable insights into our comprehensive range of services.
You know that EEC provides virtual and in-person traditional one-on-one coaching, but did you know that there are additional components to the coaching model that EEC coaches build into their skill development plan? These components allow us to individualize the level of support you need while meeting your preferred communication and accountability needs. Read on to learn about the four components of the EEC Coaching Model.
This coaching model is the most common form of coaching and is required initially for all our clients. Direct coaching is when the client and coach work 1:1 together over Google Meet, in person, or over the phone.
Coach Initiated Indirect Coaching
This type of coaching is equally as substantive as direct 1:1 coaching and provides a similar type of support. Still, it uses methods such as texting, email, and/or other technology to substantially support a client’s goals and skill development without meeting “face to face”. PLEASE NOTE: Not all coaches provide this type of coaching support so if you are interested in it, please let us know so that we can ensure that you have a coach that does.
Executive Function Case Management (EFCM)
Executive Function Case Management (EFCM) provides a more comprehensive and increased level of coaching support for clients and/or parents looking for a higher level of support, monitoring, advocacy, collaboration, and/or accountability. In addition to a more comprehensive level of coaching for the child, the coach is also available to provide such things as parent coaching and/or support, facilitate family meetings, collaborate with other professionals and team members, and attend 504 or IEP meetings.
This is a client-initiated process where the coach and client set a schedule of when the client will update the coach on their daily or weekly progress. The ultimate goal is for all clients to embrace this check-in model and develop the skills to independently initiate updates with their coach as they progress through the coaching process.
As you can see, EEC is a full-service coaching company. We are here to meet you at whatever level of need you require. Whether you need a more intense level of coaching and accountability to support your skill development, or you are ready for just a few coach-initiated check-ins a month to make sure you are staying on track after you have built new habits and have new levels of confidence and competence, we approach coaching to meet your evolving level of need. If you have questions about our model, don’t hesitate to contact us.
