Coaches Help Clarify Dreams, Goals, and Challenges

CIMBA-Mind-wo-logoThe International Coach Federation (ICF) defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.” All CIMBA coaches utilize the ICF framework and follow the ethical and professional guidelines established by ICF.

Our coaches guide you through questions designed to encourage you to think through your goals, both professional and personal, so that you can create an actionable plan to achieve these goals and overcome any barriers. Coaching sessions at CIMBA are supported by biometric and psychometric assessment data collected through CIMBA’s unique, highly-sophisticated data capture system. The tools and techniques used by our coaches are based on recent neuroscience findings and are constantly improving with the integration of new technology. Our data-driven coaching system is reviewed and supported by a team of experts in neuroleadership and its supporting fields.

At CIMBA, all programs (other than summer study abroad) offer you the opportunity to work with coaches. With your coach, you will participate in personalized sessions to discuss your future plans and opportunities related to both your career and personal life. During these sessions, the coaches will use discussions, data collected during LIFE, and from your assessment results to help you identify your strengths and areas for improvement. With your coach, you will work to clarify dreams, goals, and challenges, while creating a plan to reach your highest potential. You will begin to implement your plan while at CIMBA but when you leave, you will have a development plan in place so that you can continue your personal growth journey.
