Coach Karen Stenos

The Full Story

Karen Stenos – Certified Life Coach

 

Karen obtained her BA(ed) degree at the Rand Afrikaans University (now University of Johannesburg), followed by a B.Ed Honours degree in School Management (also at UJ). Karen is a life-long student who has accumulated a variety of qualifications. Most recently she qualified as a Life Coach. Karen has worked in both Public and Private Secondary (High) Schools whilst teaching English (initially) and later IT (Information Technology focusing on Computer Programming in both Delphi and Java). She has experience in both the CAPS and IEB curricula.

Both her class teaching and extramural activities allowed her to get to know her students as individuals – what makes them “tick”, what they are passionate about as well as what their personal struggles are. Karen believes that each individual is capable and unique and she imparts, models and encourages this with all the students she has taught. Through her teaching and her need to help others improve, she identified specific skills and mindsets that are required for success. These skills, however, are not overtly taught at school level. Students are expected to assimilate (“pick up”/acquire) these skills “by accident”. This does not happen automatically. Thus, she identified a need for a service that addresses the deliberate acquisition of these skills in conjunction with providing Emotional support and an accountability partner to effect positive change for students that will translate into better achievement and a more balanced life overall.

This led her to Life Coaching as a delivery method for the above intervention. She has come to realize through her own personal experience and engagement with the process that the tools and interventions available through the coaching process are life changing and worth the investment. This led to the establishment of Student Success Solutions Coaching SA the mission of which is clear in the motto: Wholistic Improvement.

Continued awareness of areas to improve added to a continued constructive effort to improve using the tools, attitudes and perspectives acquired through coaching will lead to Success (in life, in school, at university, in your career etc). Coaching helps individuals become more aware of who they are, what to them is important and/or non-negotiable, what their needs are, how they function, the behaviour patterns they perpetuate, the attitudes/beliefs that hold them back and then equips them with tools and strategies to help them become more focused, resilient, goal orientated, determined,  and confident in their own abilities. This lays the foundation for current improvement and future success.
