The Grandparents’ Guide to Coaching Children and Teens: bridging an important gap!
We all have a role to play in today’s society, whether with your own teenagers or not! Tune in as I talk to Ian Jefferis, accredited practitioner Coach and founder and director of Young Minds Coaching providing training programs to parents, grandparents, school staff and others, supporting today’s young generations as they develop towards adulthood and the workplace. Now that to me sounds like a crucial and worthy mission.
Ian takes great delight in helping others to progress and to achieve; this is particularly so of teenagers and young adults. He is an Accredited Practitioner Coach (IAPC&M) and has been Noble Manhattan Coaching’s (NMC) licensed distributor for UK and Ireland and lead developer, in association with the School Wellbeing Alliance, of the NMC Adolescent and Child Coaching training programme since its inception in 2016. Now in his third career, Ian considers that this is the most pleasurable. Born in Cornwall and ‘made in the Royal Navy’ he spent his first career flying helicopters and as a military operations specialist. During his time as SME owner, he identified the challenges that the business sector was/is facing, particularly the lack of students’ soft skills development, and compounded through COVID-19 lockdowns. With offspring (7) spread across primary and secondary school years, he is committed to ensuring that they and their peers are best prepared for life both now and in their future. Ian is founder and director of Young Minds Coaching C.I.C., (not for profit) focusing on providing NMC’s training programmes to parents, grandparents, school staff and others supporting today’s young generations as they develop towards adulthood and the workplace.
