As a JLBC Cadet Corps Teen Coach


As a JLBC Cadet Corps Teen Coach, you can significantly impact young people's lives. You can guide them through their teenage years, help them navigate the ups and downs, and support them in becoming their best version.

One of the keys to being an effective Teen Coach is mastery. Mastery is not a destination; it is a journey. It requires constant reflection and a willingness to learn and grow. One way to cultivate mastery is by asking yourself reflection questions after each coaching session.

Here are three questions you can ask yourself to help you master your sessions:

  1. What worked well today with my teen client?

  2. It is essential to recognize what went well during the coaching session. This can include any breakthroughs or positive behavior, attitude, or belief changes. It can also include any strategies or techniques that were particularly effective in helping your client to move forward. Celebrating your successes can help you to feel more confident and motivated as a coach.

  3. What could have worked better today with my teen client?

  4. It is equally important, to be honest with yourself about what did not go well during the coaching session. This can include any roadblocks or challenges that you encountered. It can also include any strategies or techniques that were ineffective in helping your client move forward. Recognizing what did not work can help you to learn from your mistakes and to improve your coaching skills.

  5. What can I do better during the next teen coaching session?

  6. After reflecting on what worked well and what did not, you must identify specific actions you can take to improve your coaching skills. This might include practicing particular techniques, seeking additional training or support, or adjusting your coaching style. By taking concrete steps to improve, you can continue to grow as a coach and better support your teen clients.

In conclusion, mastering your coaching sessions as a JLBC Cadet Corps Teen Coach requires ongoing reflection and a commitment to growth. By asking yourself these three reflection questions after each coaching session, you can identify what worked well, what did not, and what you can do better next time. By doing so, you can continue to improve your coaching skills and make a meaningful impact on the lives of young people.
