Post Course Coaching

This service will look at developing a coaching relationship once your Outward Bound course is complete, with the aim to help you to continue implementing the knowledge and goals identified into your own environments. An Outward Bound course aims to develop ‘Better People, Better Communities, Better World’.  Our life coaching will build on your course experience to support and motivate you to realise these core values in your daily life.

These sessions are not currently available for Professional and Adapted courses.

This service will replicate one on one discussions you may have had with your instructor but they will take place in your own environment, focusing on your own obstacles.

Outward Bound Coaching aims to continue working with students to achieve the following:

 

  • Provide a safe, non-judgemental space to review and analyse views, values and experiences
  • Increase the relevance of the Outward Bound Kaupapa into students’ lives
  • To personalise messages, themes and concepts learnt at Outward Bound
  • To be a sounding board for life decisions, identifying personal strengths and areas to develop
  • To follow up on commitments made whilst on your Outward Bound course

About Paula

IMG 20180531 115143

Paula has post graduate training in Motivation and Behavioral Change and has a special interest in strengths based and solution focused conversations. She trained and worked as an Occupational Therapist across both physical health and mental health sectors before coming to Outward Bound as an instructor in 2015. She is passionate about personal growth and development and has a strong strengths and solutions based focus in her work. Her favourite part of being an instructor at Outward Bound were the one on one conversations with students and watching their growth throughout the course. During her contract at Outward Bound she looked into ways that we could continue to engage in the learning process with students after courses and this is where the concept for a coaching service was developed.

The biggest challenge people face is after OB, following through with changes and best intentions once reality hits. The coaching sessions are a really good way to bridge this return into reality and keep the experience alive longer, allowing a better chance of success in the changes and challenges they face.

Ruby Evenstar, Masters, Nov 2017

It made me think more deeply and constructively about what lessons I wanted to take from OB, and how the insights could cross over into my life at home. Without the coaching sessions I would not have managed to set up concrete plans for how I was going to bring the lessons into my life.
