MTFJ Life Coaching Pilot

Life Coaching2

Through the Mobile Employment Hub, the Mayor’s Taskforce for Jobs (MTFJ) identified that some Youth in our community have a lack of motivation to find employment or to identify an employment pathway and this was a barrier for them gaining employment.
MTFJ wanted to find a solution to address this barrier.
To work towards a solution, MTFJ created a Pilot with Complete Coaching, an organization that works with individuals to help them achieve their goals and secure personal and professional achievement. The purpose of the Pilot was to run Life Coaching sessions with Youth. From this, five individuals were identified as requiring some additional support and were referred to work with Anna. These individuals attended an introductory session followed by 4 one on one sessions with Anna where their goals, both personal and professional were discussed, and plans put in place to achieve these goals. MTFJ worked alongside these individuals also to assist with achieving their employment goals.
The Pilot was a great success with all five participants overcoming their barriers and gaining employment after completing sessions with Anna.
One participant of the Pilot, Nika overcome barriers and applied for numerous jobs of interest. This resulted in her securing fulltime employment at a local retirement home. Nika noted, “Anna has been so great at breaking down steps and helping me set a plan. I feel ten times more confident. I’ve always been quite motivated and happy, but Anna has channelled that into confidence and action! The best aspect of the coaching was the open and safe feeling Anna created. She helped push me but did it with kindness and empathy. I’m so grateful to Anna for pushing me past the obstacles that I felt were too big for me to conquer. And she did it in a way that made me feel like I was being supported by a friend, it never felt like she was just doing her job.”
